Fourth of July Family Camp July 2-8
Labor Day Weekend Sept 1-4
Families desiring uninterrupted time of fun for every member of the family.
Families longing for a safe place for their kids.
Families desiring both quality and quantity family time
In a fast paced world driven by full schedules and commitments we invite you to spend a week of quality intentional time with your family. Instead of saying "no, we don't have time for that", say "yes" to spending time together doing absolutely nothing or taking advantage of a schedule full of age appropriate programs and activities. Enjoy the opportunity free from the distractions of a busy life while spending time in God's word and making memories with your family.

"Our kids loved family camp, and the counselors were great with the kids."
"The grounds are spacious and well cared for, there is a diverse amount of activities for campers to choose from and finally, I do not worry about my child's safety in any way!"
