Summer camp provides children the opportunity to spend time in a fun environment while being challenged to live their life for Christ. We encourage our children to go to Twin Lakes Camp in Hillsboro, IN or SpringHill Camp in Seymour, IN.
Campers will participate in a variety of age appropriate activities such as swimming, hiking, boating, climbing, jumping on the blob, and playing a variety of team and large group games. For specific activities offered, please refer to the camp websites.
While campers have the opportunity to request a friend be in the same cabin, they will be in cabins with campers they may not know. They will have the opportunity to make new friends and to get along with others. They will learn to take risks beyond their comfort zone (parents, they are safe risks). After the first day home, when the camper will be exhausted, parents will see that their camper has grown up over the week they were gone.
In addition to the chapel services during the day, camp counselors are trained to direct the campers' attention toward the key themes of Scripture that are taught during the week. This happens whether they are on a hike, doing activities on Challenge mountain, or any other cabin activity. They are also trained to help campers learn to resolve interpersonal issues in a biblical way. Many children will make life-changing decisions in following Christ during their week at camp.
The goal of the scholarship program is to give every desiring child the chance to go to Camp and to instill good basic Christian living principles.
