develop and strengthen your relationship with Christ

Students who have completed 6th through 12th grade are challenged to develop and strengthen their relationship with Christ through his Word. We accomplish this by providing a high-energy camp experience that includes fun-filled activities, inspiring worship services, team building times, biblical seminars and most importantly a time alone with their Creator.

Colossians 2:8

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
