A week of camp that is designed with older youth in mind. A variety of activities and opportunities to keep older youth busy and challenged. As with all of our camps, we take a break from cell phones and other technology to engage with one another and with God's Creation. We also take the next step in our canoes with an exciting trip down the river. The human body image conversations begun at Jr. Youth camp will continue as we further explore and reflect on the understandings of human beauty that we receive from God and from culture and how it impacts our relationships with ourselves, each other, and with God. These human body image conversations are guided by our most experienced and trained adult staff in small groups and then in a large group to reflect on the negative impact of the images we receive from popular culture and the positive, alternative values of the gospel. On the last day, campers will welcome their families to camp to share some of their camp experience and a picnic meal provided by camp.
Please note the change in the start and end day for Sr and Jr Youth camps due to the need for keeping the week of National Youth Conference free.
