ELEVATE (Jr. High Main)
June 24-29, 2018 (6th-8th Grade)
Dean: Joel Harrison
Campers, between 6th-8th grade, are stepping up to Elevate. This week we are moving and rising to a higher place, position, state; intellectually and spiritually. We are getting loud! We have embarked on our mission, and now it is time to step up. Here at Elevate you will encounter situations that challenge and push you to new levels. You’ll find life changing experiences during a week of Elevate. Just as all main camps, Elevate campers and faculty will find themselves sleeping in cabins overnight that are close to the bathhouse and dining hall. A day at Elevate includes worship with a band, speakers who will ignite a flame in you, small family group times, swimming, zipline, canteen, campfires, and so much more!
EDGE (High School Main)
June 17-23, 2018 (9th-Just Graduated)
Dean; Aaron Sweeney
High School students, 9th-Just Graduated, are going to the Edge. These students will be being the difference in the lives of others. Campers during their week of Edge will be going out into the surrounding communities where they will be serving others. This is a week of stepping up to be the leaders and servants that each of us is called to be; Eagerly Dispersing God’s love Everywhere. The service projects will vary, but each one can have an effect on a life. That life could be yours. Edge campers and faculty will sleep overnight in cabins that are near the bathhouse and dining hall. Along with the service projects, campers at Edge will partake in worship with a band, classes, intense speakers, small group discussions, swimming, zipline, paintball, canteen, campfires, and so much more. Are you ready to go to the EDGE?

ADVENTURE CAMP (WILDERNESS CAMP)
June 10-15, 2018 (7th-10th Grade)
Dean: Tony Liston
This may be the most unusual week of church camp your camper can attend! We will teach them critical thinking skills for life by teaching them survival skills for the woods – shelter building, fire starting, the edible forest around them, water purification, how to improvise cordage, handy knots, orienteering, and edged tools – all tied to biblical lessons for life. They will also leave camp as certified Red Cross First Aid providers, also certified in CPR/AED. The practical discipleship impact of this week will lead them in a positive direction for years to come. As an added bonus for our older, returning campers, a certified John Maxwell Leadership Team Coach will be there to train them through the curriculum, “Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Learn.” (This Maxwell course alone is a $150 value provided to your older campers at no extra charge!)
M.A.D. (MUSIC, ART, AND DRAMA) CAMP

Friday night we will have a closing program for parents and family to come and experience what was learned throughout the week.
