During their session, each camper participates in each of our exciting activities - Horseback riding, Wild Wilderness Adventure, Games, Challenge Course, Riflery/Archery, Rock Climbing, Waterfront, Leather crafts and Kayaking. Biblical narratives serve as the theme each week, and come to life during assembly times as the whole camp experiences a Bible adventure.
