Tired of doing camp each year that wears off before school starts? Our camps are designed with more than a great experience in mind. We strive for true and lasting change. We believe in ongoing life change not just the "camp high." More than just focusing on the individual student and adult worker, we teach them how they fit into the "big picture". Instead of a barrage of topics our camps direct your group onto a path that will perpetuate life change and growth.
