Why a combined Middle & High School Session?

We know that many youth groups and families have kids in both middle and high school, so we want to serve you by offering a camp experience specifically for you! While creating a program suitable for all of these ages, we take intentional breaks in the daily schedule to allow middle school and high school campers to encounter God in their own unique way. Camp provides an important opportunity for each camper to know that they are loved by God in the midst of the unique challenges that they face at their specific age. We recognize that this is a big task for our camp staff, but we hire exceptional college students and young adults to walk through these valleys and peaks with them. All staff are extensively interviewed and pass a background check. We have one staff member to every 4 campers to ensure that your child is supported and cared for during their session of camp.

A Typical Day at Middle/High School Camp:

7:30am – Wake Up

8:15am – Morning Prayer

We structure our days around the practice of prayer, so we start each day together in our Chapel with Morning Prayer. This prayer includes reading of scriptures, music, silence, and both corporate and private prayer.

8:30am – Breakfast

9:00am – Morning Gathering (Middle School)

Campers gather together in our Chapel each morning for worship and to hear from our Storyteller about our theme for the session.

9:00am – Breakout Sessions (High School)

These are sessions for high school campers to choose from to help answer some of their most pressing faith questions. Some of our sessions include: What is the Bible? What is love? What is my spiritual growth path?

10:00am – Reflection (Middle School)

We set aside 30 minutes each morning for campers to reflect on what they are learning about God and their faith. This time can include silence, journaling and scripture reading. We provide age appropriate camper journals for each camper that helps guide them during this time each day.

10:00am – Solitude (High School)

This is an essential time for high school campers to ponder and wrestle with the concepts and ideas they encountered in their breakout session. This is a guided time to help them apply what they are learning.

10:30am – Cabin Experiences (Middle School)

We block out the rest of the morning to spend time together as a cabin. This is for team building activities, games, and tactile experiences that reinforce the theme of our week that campers hear about in our Morning and Evening Gatherings.

11:00am – Cabin Reflection (High School)

We block out the rest of the morning to spend time together as a cabin sharing what they learned in their breakout sessions and what they wrestled with in their personal time of solitude. This allows the campers to attempt to put words to the things they are learning and encountering as a teenager in today’s society.

12:00pm – Midday Prayer

Our entire camp pauses and gathers together in our Chapel for Midday Prayer. This prayer times includes reading of scriptures, music, silence, and both corporate and private prayer.

12:30pm – Lunch

1:00pm – Free Time & Afternoon Activities

Each day we open up all of our camp activities and facilities for campers to hang out with one another and our staff. In addition to our main attractions (pool, splash park, waterslide, ropes course and more), there are organized activities offered throughout the afternoon. We offer freedom for kids to learn how to make choices on their own and build authentic relationships with one another and God in the context of camp community. At the same time we value camp being a safe place for kids that is appropriately supervised.

6:00pm – Dinner

6:45pm – Evening Gathering

Campers gather together in our Chapel each evening for worship and to hear more from our Storyteller about our theme.

7:45pm – Cabin Reflection

We make sure to carve out some time after our Evening Gathering to hear from one another about what we are learning and how we are being encouraged and challenged in our own life and faith.

8:45pm – Hype

Each night at camp has a different theme (or what we call Hype), and staff and campers will dress in costumes for all out fun and craziness. Stay tuned for this year’s theme days!

10:45pm – Lights Out

After settling down and getting ready for bed, campers will turn lights out and get some Zzz’s in order to be ready for another day of camp!
