Three overnights is the perfect length of time for first-time and younger Campers. We always have an super-high ratio of Staff-to-Campers so we can shower them with all the love and attention they need, and the days are full of Bible Study, Games, Crafts, Swimming, more Games, plus a different evening activity each night.

A longer Camp Session, with 5 overnights, with a daily schedule similar to Elementary Camp, but geared for Middle Schoolers. We do in-depth Bible Studies, Games, Crafts, and Swimming.

High School Retreat is NOT your typical "Summer Camp" and has a more relaxed atmosphere! Participants take part in planning many of the weekly activities! We have much more in-depth Bible Studies, often with open-ended discussion groups. It's a mix of Learning, Service Projects, and Fun with some in-town adventures like Bowling or maybe even a Movie!

Camperships exist through the Presbytery, Camp, and many local Churches.
If you need financial assistance, we ask that you first contact your Church and see if/what support they can give, then if you need further financial assistance have your Pastor or Clerk of Session submit a short written request including a short statement of the need via email with “CAMPERSHIP REQUEST” in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Typically, the Presbytery pays 1/3, your Church pays 1/3, and you pay 1/3.
