just you & me, kid

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.
All Ages is open to kids entering 3rd grade through current year grads
Leadership:  Doug Bolin; Chaplin: Rev Bev Kahle
Faith Journeys is a multi-age camp that emphasizes Christ's living presence both at camp and back home.  The camp offers a place where we can share our own stories as we explore and share the stories from the Bible.  Knowing that God's Spirit is already working in each youth and adult, there is an atmosphere of mutual respect that encourages personal worth and Christian responsibility.  This week includes age-group and all-camp activities to strengthen Christian community, camper maturity, and intergenerational learning.
Faith Journeys is open to kids entering 3rd grade through current year grads.

Creative Spirit is a music, arts, drama, and dance camp.  Everyone who attends will be on stage in some capacity.  The camp is about embracing the talents God gave us and using them to the best of our abilities in performance.  In addition to rehearsal, we also join together every day in times of worship and reflection.  The camp will be split by age to provide more opportunities to be on stage in larger roles.  Campers are encouraged to support both performances.
Friday: 7pm - older youth perform in the auditorium.
Saturday:  10am - younger youth perform in the chapel.
