Summer Day Camp for Teens
Kids need camp. Today, like never before, teens and pre-teens are under tremendous pressure. Self-doubt, peer pressure, substance abuse, self injury and a myriad of harmful voices nag at kids every day. Even kids who have a strong support structure face obstacles. Camp provides opportunities for students to pull away and get a breather – to catch a vision for the bigger picture of their lives. Kids need … the Power of Camp.
Our Teen Camp is designed with young teens in mind (7th grade - age 15). It offers many of the same activities as Children’s Camp but with age appropriate and more challenging activities. The Bible lessons are tailored to help today’s teens tackle the tough issues facing them and make good life decisions from a Christian perspective.
Teen Campers have the opportunity to go on weekly field trips! The teens love going to water parks, sports arenas, and even river tubing.
Our mature staff connects with your teens, while encouraging them to make new friends, learn and improve their recreational skills, and grow in their personal relationship with God. The Teen Camp is staffed by our Counselors and Activities Directors who are all age 18 and up. We strive to maintain a one to eight staff to camper ratio.

A Typical Summer Teen Camp Day
- Drop Off (begins at 7:30am, flag raising is at 8:45am)
- Bible Study
- Group Song Time
- Swim Time
- Free Time

The camp sections – Middlers, Seniors, Teens – rotate between some of the activities. For example, the Seniors have swim time first while the teens and middlers eat lunch. Then they switch out. Occasionally a one-day special event will replace Electives, but more often the special event is held during the Afternoon Activities time. On Fridays, we wrap up the week with an all camp event in the Large Chapel towards the end of the day. Campers and Staff of the Week are announced along with the team winner of the week – Polars or Grizzlies.
