Haven Explorers: 5-8 year olds

Our Haven Explorers camp is a delightful mix of curiosity and adventure. Campers will explore nature both on campus and during field trips. They’ll investigate God’s amazing creation. They’ll also dive deeply into the creative world of literature and create their own stories. They’ll create crafts, have picnic lunches, make friends, frolic in water, and so much more! We’ll take frequent field trips!

Our Creativity Unleashed campers will unleash their creativity and build memories that last a lifetime. We’ll develop and act out skits, write stories, learn to cook fantastic treats, explore nature, go on amazing field trips, and much more!

Adventure Club: 11-15 year olds

Our camp for 11-15 year olds is all about adventure! We’ll go to the movies, pool, hiking, bowling, trampoline park, and more! Campers will get to know each other and make memories of a great summer!
