No summer camp experience should be without a rustic option! For kids who love the great outdoors and “roughing- it” camping, check out our wildly popular Adventure Camps and Traverse Adventure Camps.

Adventure Camps are rustic summer camp living. Campers live in platform tents and sleep on bunks inside the tents. Campers take all their meals at outdoors in the Adventure Village. Restroom facilities are port-a-pots. Showers are available daily at the pool shower room. Adventure and Traverse Adventure campers live in smaller communities than our other overnight campers. Smaller groups allow for deeper relationships to grow and greater spiritual growth to take place. They participate in high adventure activities such as tubing down Back Creek, Giant Swing, Flying Squirrel, Zipline, Climbing Wall, and more. Chapel times take place in the Adventure Village for these campers where they have a more intimate worship setting in their small group. Evenings are spent around a campfire, sharing stories and life and worshipping.
