High School Camp

High School campers make friends for life. Regular camp activities for this age include all the favorites: swimming, low ropes course, campfires, games, songs, crafts, creative Bible study and worship, all geared to older kids. High School campers have at least one off-site outing, and plan/lead many of their activities. Excellent college-aged counselors act as friends and guides. A crazy costume dance ends the week of friends and fun.
