By incorporating high adventure with caring leaders, the backdrop of nature and time to think without distractions, as well as the opportunity to be known and loved, the power of camp can, in turn, create life-long friendships and changed lives. Camp is a temporary community where safe risks can be taken and important questions can be asked.
Think great food, relaxed atmosphere and familyfriendly facilities with inspiring ministry and worship, all set against a beautiful backdrop of tree-lined hills, starry nights and a sandy beach. No meals to cook, no traffic to battle or pressure from work; it’s an escape for the whole family!
Rip it up water-skiing, wakeboarding or tubing; compete in the longstanding North vs. South volleyball and football rivalries, water regattas, and other sports; connect with friends as you play, learn, and worship together.
