GET ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS!

New name and new opportunity. We don’t want to limit your ministry efforts. Confirmation Camp (junior high) doesn’t work for many churches and opportunities for younger children/youth hasn’t existed. If your church has participated in our Faith Works Camp we invite you to our new Team Camp!

Preteens love challenge and exploration! Gathering your preteens for summer camp will pay dividends throughout your ministry year. By starting younger, you energize fellowship within your family ministry that should carry forward into youth ministry.

ABSOLUTELY! Junior highers crave socializing; and when it is within a Christian community,
surrounded by other children, youth and their young adult counselors – a summer camp can be an inspiring and life-changing time in their lives.

When at least one adult joins the group it is powerful. We encourage you to have a caring adult (pastor or otherwise) journey with your children or youth. However, we realize that may not work for every church. Our trained summer counselors and other staff can lead your group even if an adult from your church isn’t available. For most weeks, hotel-quality housing is available in our Freedom Tree Village so adults do not need to stay overnight with their group. Campers stay in our Retreat Cabins with bathrooms, bunks and A/C.

It may work better to bring your preteens and junior highers on different weeks. Again, your church has its own unique needs so if you feel that bringing a mix of 3rd-9th graders will work for your church we’ll work with you to make the week a fantastic faith journey.

Team Camp! is designed for your younger youth and preteens. If you have some high school youth that would like to join you as youth-age leaders we LOVE it. We recommend bringing high school youth that will lead and not just be another camper.

Serve others, laugh, pray, hike, sing, play gaga ball, canoe, explore scripture, listen, grow, be inspired, engage in team building, make a friendship bracelet, eat lots of great food, stare into a campfire, see Chill the tortoise, dance, be in awe of nature, hear stories of faith, worship, see a turkey, play human Foosball, race down the zip line, swim in the pool, sing up a summer staff person, share a cabin with friends, make new friends, build up the body of Christ, grow and mature. Immersed in faith!

Summer staff are trained each year which includes first aid and CPR/AED training. The pool is led by a lifeguard and our Health Center is staffed with an onsite staff person. Safety is crucial to any classroom, family, sports team and retreat center. We maintain safe ratios of campers to counselors and follow strict guidelines and protocols for camper safety.

We are flexible with your group’s schedule. If your pastor wants to lead Bible study or do an activity with the Catechism we’ll make sure your group has congregation time. Our church groups through the years have their own traditions from: working on sharing their faith at the end of the week, planning a special worship time with Holy Communion, have a pizza party and more. We will work with your needs!

An online registration form is available at the bottom of this page. After filling out the form, we will send you a confirmation asking you to make a non-refundable deposit to hold your church’s spot. You recruit your group, transport them to and from camp and get ready to hear amazing stories.
