A day at camp includes many adventures! Campers spend mornings in their journeys, afternoons doing activities as a cabin group and evenings enjoying all-camp activities like campfires, large group games, talent shows and the famous Rock-a-Boji! Most importantly, campers spend their day being nurtured by caring and supportive staff, making new friends, growing in their faith, gaining confidence as they try new activities and learning new skills. Typically, campers experience various opportunities including swimming, archery, Bible study, horse rides, canoeing, hiking, wagon rides, crafts, water sliding, campfire, worship, sports and games.
