The program activities continue to develop skills and challenge for an older age group. Special camp-wide group activities become larger and the themes more involved. Chapel speakers provide dynamic, age appropriate instruction on who Jesus Christ is. Campers have the option of signing up ahead of time for the Water Ski/Wake Boarding and/or Horsemanship programs for an additional fee.
Finding God in every moment
Cabin Leaders guide their campers through the day as they share meals together, sit together in chapel, lead discussions, and plan a daily “cabin time” activity. Campers choose their own activities once they arrive at camp and so they have the opportunity to make even more friends outside of their cabin groups.
Campers start the day with a short personal quiet time of reflection. Chapel sessions begin with a dynamic time of singing and chapel speakers explain the message of God's love along with the hope this gives us. Cabin groups meet together with their leaders after chapel to talk about what was taught and how it might be relevant to daily living.
In addition to all the usual exciting events at camp, campers choose the 4 activities that interest them most through a fun process we call Marketplace. They can plan to sign up with their friends, or plan to make new ones! Campers also have the option of signing up ahead of time for the Waterski/Wakeboard program and/or Horse program for an additional fee.
