Summer Camps 2022: UPDATES IN PROGRESS!

COVID-19: The safety of our campers and staff is of utmost importance. As we plan for summer camp, we are sharing the ways we have adapted our policies and procedures in light of the pandemic. Please know we continually monitor developments in information, government restrictions, and guidelines provided by the CDC, ACA (American Camping Association), and The United Methodist Church. Our camp policies and procedures will be updated accordingly. To view our current Protocols, please click here.

General Camp Information: Our camps are designed to guide children and youth in exploring and experiencing God’s love while having absolute FUN with new and old friends in a safe and beautiful setting. We offer sessions for campers entering first grade in Fall 2022 through those graduating in Spring 2023.

Our 2022 Summer Camp Welcome Packet (coming soon!) provides all the information parents and campers need to know, including check in/check out times and procedures, packing list, and much more!

All campers are required to turn in an Authorized Pick Up form. Email the completed form to Patricia Pegram prior to the start of the camp session OR bring it with you to camp check in.

2022 Updates: We are beginning registration earlier, on November 1, and introducing a new session for rising 7th – graduated seniors called Youth Arts Camp. We are also bringing back a modified favorites with the introduction of Adventures in Leadership and Adventures in Missions. The new favorite, Night Owls, will be held a little later in July this year.

Camp is where we grow; we grow in laughter, new friendships, in faith, and we grow our dirty laundry! Seriously, though – camp is the place where it’s safe to grow and to try new things and there’s plenty of that at Elementary Camp. Elementary campers have the opportunity to participate in archery, team-building, challenge course, crafts, fishing, fire-building*, hiking, worship, Bible study, and more! These campers will fill your vehicle with camp songs, great stories, and many laughs on the way home. Get ready for a fun ride!
*Fire-building taught and lead by certified camp staff.
