Spirit Camp is a unique experience that many report is the highlight of their youth experience, shaping their Christian identity and making memories that continue well into adulthood. Students spend the week together in the midst of God’s creation playing, learning, and growing in discipleship. We do a little bit of everything – games, crafts, drama, music, Bible study, swimming, boating, worship, and so much more. We even take a field trip to a nearby water park! Some high school students will serve on the leadership team and plan and execute the majority of the activities. Adults serve as chaperones and of course have lots of fun.
