getting started

Tri-Level camp is devoted to strengthening relationships within your own age groups as well as interacting with all three age levels combined for a welcoming family-like atmosphere.  A focus of all the camps is helping campers develop a sustainable, relevant relationship with Christ and a deeper understanding of the Bible.  During the week, campers will participate in service projects, high and low ropes courses, and canoeing, as well as small group and whole group activities and competitions.  Other camp traditions include singing after meals, a talent show, 4th of July carnival, water Olympics, and much more!  We hope you will join us for a week of camp!

The All Ages camp offers a unique experience where campers spend the week in multi-age cabins and Family Groups while still having time with kids their own age.  The camp embraces learning to appreciate the gifts each person brings regardless of age, and actively teaching Christian values in a family setting.  The philosophy of the camp is built on mutual respect - respect for God, others, the world and place where we live, and ourselves.  At the heart of the camp is the development of a personal faith in Christ, practiced in community.
