Summer Camp 2023
Looking back at summer camp 2022
Jesus and his disciples sometimes withdrew into the wild for spiritual refreshment and fellowship together. At Summer Camp 2022, campers literally venture into the wild to explore God's awesome creation, enjoy fellowship with one another and learn of God's love in Christ Jesus.
Check back after Jan. 1 for the theme & schedule for Summer Camp 2023
Pathfinders Dates TBD
For rising 2nd-4th graders
Campers at this four-day, three-night session enjoy nature walks, swimming, games, singing, crafts, archery, campfires and a trip to the petting zoo, along with simple Bible lessons. The staff works hard to ensure the children feel safe — and have loads of fun!
Explorers Dates TBD
For rising 4th-6th graders
In this six-day, five-night session Explorers venture into Petit Jean State Park — canoeing on Lake Bailey and hiking Cedar Falls Trail. They enjoy swimming, games, archery, crafts, petting zoo and campfires. Bible studies are part of each day’s activities.
Trailblazers Dates TBD
For rising 5th-8th graders
Campers will have the opportunity to go on a trail ride at the riding stables, in addition to all the regular camp activities: hiking, swimming, canoeing, archery & axe throwing, large group games, outdoor ed. They will also enjoy nightly campfires with music and a message, as well as daily Bible studies that address their emerging questions about faith and life.
voyagers Dates TBD
For rising 7th-9th & 10th-12th graders & new graduates
For older campers, this session will include overnight camping, a night swim, later campfires, and watching the sunrise over the Arkansas River Valley from Stout's Point. It also includes the "Godly Man" and "Godly Woman" sessions, where adult leaders engage their campers in frank talk about real issues facing teen-agers in our culture. Hiking, night games, canoeing and horseback riding all also part of the session.
PIONEERS Dates TBD
For rising 5th-8th graders
Campers at this five-day, four-night session will sleep in teepee tents near the waterfront, cook some of their meals over an open fire, learn advanced canoeing skills, ride horses, and learn more about creation in sessions led by interpreters from Petit Jean State Park. They will also be able to try their hand at throwing tomahawks!
Adventure Dates TBD
For rising 9th-12th graders and new graduates
High school students will leave the mountain for more intense adventures -- a river float trip, tent camping and rock climbing. They will also search God's Word for answers to life's tough questions.
Family Camp Dates TBD
Two sessions, both on weekends, make it more convenient for working parents. Family Camp is open to all families but is designed especially for families with children too young to attend regular sessions of camp. The session provides an opportunity for children to enjoy camp with parents and grandparents participating to provide reassurance and help prevent homesickness. The session offers a sampling of regular camp activities: singing, swimming, hiking, canoeing, large group games, crafts, Bible study and campfires — with s'mores, of course! The activities are geared toward younger children, but entire families, including older siblings, are welcome. Families can stay in RVs or tents (Camp Trinity can provide the tents) in our campground or offsite at a reduced cost for the weekend.
We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. 1 Thessalonians 1:2
