Group Registration Open Now! Let us know if you’re interested and we’ll send you a contract to consider before committing! All we need is your church information and projected numbers.

SERVICE

As Christ came to serve He calls us to do likewise. This will encourage students to put their faith in motion at camp and in the community. Projects are likely to include nursing homes, food pantries, assisting the elderly with yard work, and whatever else God leads us to do!

ADVENTURE

With a mixture of on-site and off-site recreation options, campers can experience adrenaline pumping excitement or more leisurely fun. All activities are included in the cost of registration. A sample of some available activities are listed below.

CHRIST-FOCUSED

At the heart of it at all will be giving campers a chance to experience God like never before. Often at camp young people experience a mountaintop experience with God. With your youth leaders, and other adults there to see it firsthand, you’ll be able to ensure this trip to the mountain will foster continual growth back at home.

Amazing Recreation

 Overwhelmed at the thought of attending a big conference or planning your own summer camp experience? Worn out? We’ve got you covered with some amazing activities included at no extra cost and operated by trained staff!

***Some activities are limited in size.***

WHITE WATER RAFTING

A trip down the Nantahala River will be the culmination of the adventure for the week with as all students go on a guided rafting trip. Price is included in registration!

GA GA BALL

Also known as Octoball, this game has swept across the nation at schools and camps over the past decade. It’s a mixture between four square and dodgeball played inside a three foot tall walled octagon. May the best camper win!

AIR RIFLES

Our new air rifles are excellent fun and a great tool to teach gun safety.

ZIPLINE

One of our most popular activities! We have two parallel ziplines at 300′ long, and campers get to enjoy every foot of that as they fly securely through the air.

TOMAHAWK THROWING

A new activity for teens for 2020. Few things at camp are more satisfying than sticking a tomahawk in our pine log targets.

 

 

WATER ACTIVITIES

Summer is the perfect time to have fun with water! There will be nearly daily opportunities to splash and play. We have an excellent swimming pool, slip-n-slide, and many of our field games may involve water activities as well.

KAYAKING

Kayakers will enjoy a wonderful trip down the beautiful Hiawassee River with our trained staff. This will be an excellent prelude to the adventure they will experience white water rafting. /p>

 

BIKING

We have over a dozen mountain bikes and a great location in nearby Jackrabbit Mountain. This is a perfect place for beginners to experience this adrenaline inducing activity for the first time. Experienced mountain bikers will get a chance to show off their skills as well.

The first part of being prepared is being informed! 

Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions.  

Do we need to bring chaperones?

Yes. Unlike our Boys, Girls, and Music Camps, our staff will not stay in the cabins with the campers. This will allow a church to bring their own adults and invest first-hand into their youth. Our staff will be around to assist throughout the day. We suggest a 1:10 ratio at bare minimum.

If you are a camper that is interested in coming on your own, please let us know and we will see if there is a group that is able to plug you in with their youth.

What makes this camp a good option for youth groups?

Unlike a big conference youth will be able to be outside in nature, do more activities, and receive more personal attention. Leaders will appreciate the low cost, low stress, and extra time to rest. With us taking care of the majority of the logistics you’ll even have more time to invest in your youth.

What are the accommodations like?

We have excellent bunkhouses with two private bathrooms and enough space for 12-16 people per room. With a total or 12 rooms, we can handle groups of all different sizes. The mattresses are fairly new, inner spring mattresses, rather than the traditional camp foam mattresses. And yes, the rooms have AC.

Groups will be assigned lodging based on gender and church they came with.

What steps are taken to ensure my child's safety?

All staff and volunteers undergo a background check. During staff training counselors will be trained not only in basic first aid, but also to be aware enough to help prevent many incidents. The camp takes safety very seriously and endeavors to have a certified medical professional on property every week of summer camp. Staff are trained to facilitate activities and employs American Red Cross certified lifeguards. Also the camp is inspected on an annual basis. In 2019 the camp received a 99.5 health and safety rating from the NC Department of Health & Safety.

What should my child bring to camp?

Campers should bring their own bedding (twin sized bunks), toiletries, clothes, and Bible. All medication must be turned in at check-in to our camp nurse. The medication should be in original containers in a 1 gallon ziploc bag with the camper’s name clearly labeled. 

We’ll provide 2 snacks a day but youth will want to bring money for camp merchandise.

Can my child be successful at camp if they have a developmental disability?

Some camps specialize in serving campers with developmental disabilities. Unfortunately we are not one of them. Our staff are not specifically trained in this area. The steep terrain on the camp property can also be difficult to navigate. If a child is interested in attending camp, who may require special accommodations, please contact us before registration. We strongly encourage parents to have a conversation with the Summer Camp Coordinator to see if the individual can have a positive experience.
