We welcome every camper with adventure, community, and life in Christ. The very nature of Camp, brings us out of our comfort zones and into a life cut off from distraction, so we can experience and explore God’s beautiful creation. Summer Camp brings us together with lasting friendships, strengthened through intentional life together. Together we soak in God’s Holy Word to develop and grow our relationships with Christ, people, and the world. If you plan to attend camp with your group, fill out our Volunteer Application.
