Questions Moms & Dads Ask Most About Camp
We maintain an average rate of 4-1 staffing for the campers at all times. We limit the size of our program to 60 campers per week so that our 20 staff members can give them the personalized attention that they need and deserve. The supervision rate will vary between 2-1 and 6-1 on any given day because of different class sizes and activities. At night the children are supervised by two staff members in each cabin.
We personally interview each and every staff member before we consider hiring them. We require a minimum of three reference forms including one from a spiritual leader. We also do criminal background checks and sex offender registry checks. Most of our staff is in the education or human services fields with experience working and attending at least one other summer camp. We want to make sure that your child is safe & secure during their entire stay at camp.

We provide three 1 hour activity periods each day, so your camper has a variety of fun things to do during camp.
We split campers into three groups: Cubs, Bears & Grizzlies. Cubs is our term for 7 to 10 year olds, Bears refers to 11-13 year olds and Grizzlies refers to our 14-17 year olds.
We keep campers in dorm style bunk bed cabins with up to 8 campers in each cabin with two staff members watching them. The cabins are clean, well maintained, secure and free from any pests that may live in the outdoor environment of camp. Bathrooms are clean, modern and just a very short walk from any of the cabins. Girls and boys are, of course, kept in separate sleeping areas.
We provide each counselor with a curriculum for the week that they use to teach the campers a specific Biblical theme for that week of camp. This summer we are focusing on “Everyday Bible Heroes” and “Treasure Hunters”. Throughout the week the campers will learn about God, His plan for their lives and what He expects from them. This is accomplished through daily quiet time before breakfast, cabin bible study, individual bible study time and evening campfire messages.
We employ a qualified medical professional to live on site throughout the week your child is at camp and have a doctor on call. A very large percentage of our staff is qualified in CPR and First Aid training through the Red Cross. All staff carry first aid kits with them at all times. We are within 20 minutes of a hospital and have local ambulance service in case of an emergency. We work with the local health department to make sure that all possible concerns are eliminated and your child has a safe and fun week at camp.
