High School Week is the ultimate summer experience for our 9-12 graders. Students can expect a week of fun games, classic outdoor activities, team competitions, and unexpected twists. Every year our students check out on Friday saying, “That was the best week of camp EVER” and this year will NOT disappoint.
This week offers the perfect blend of organized group time, “free time” to hang with people who aren’t in your group, and deeply meaningful spiritual growth.
Students will be separated into teams primarily based on gender and grade. This will be your “team.” You will have opportunities to compete against other teams in games and also get to share in some learning time together. However there is also AMPLE free time to socialize with all of the other campers throughout the day.
In addition to the daily scheduled fun, We create 4 distinctly different learning environments each day that will help grow our students in faith and understanding:
- Team Time: After breakfast, Students will meet with their team and leaders to work through scripture each day. It’s a practical tool they can bring home with them and use daily!
- Morning Workshop: Mid morning will be an opportunity for an elective class. We have a great group of teachers who will be leading us in a morning workshop covering a variety of subjects.
- Vespers: After spending the majority of the day in the “fun” stuff, we re-group in the evening for a group worship time and teaching time.
- Campfire: Before we turn in for the night, the whole camp gathers one last time for “campfire.” Each night one of our staff members shares their testimony of how God has moved in their life. It is powerful for our students to hear from so many of the staff they look up to.
Each year, our goal is to send our students home ready to make their world a better place in Jesus’ name. We pay special honor to our Seniors on Senior night (Thursday) and encourage all of our students to attend as many summers as possible while they are in these formative High School years.
