Campers are introduced to all activities as a cabin group accompanied by their cabin leader. In this way they experience many new things with that familiar group, without having to make big program choices. Chapels are fun with simple gospel themes that allow campers to learn more about Jesus in a way that fits with the adventure of the rest of the camp day. Our hope is that chapel is anticipated as much as a trip to go swimming
Finding God in every moment
Campers are led through the adventure of the day with their cabin leaders. Cabin groups move together through all the events of the day, providing lots of opportunity to deepen friendships and learn to work together as a team.
Chapel begins with a set of songs that usually include a lot of actions! Chapel speakers aim to communicate one simple thought each chapel using a variety of media to keep things moving. Cabin groups meet together with their leaders after chapel to review what they learned and ask any questions they might have.
Where do we begin?! Each cabin group will travel together to participate in swimming, field games, canoeing, crafts, the ropes course, outdoor adventure, and cabin-time tubing. There are different fun meals announced each day and silly songs at fireside. Then there is the camp wide Special Event where all the campers work together to battle injustice and see peace at camp restored!
