“It was the absolute best week of my summer and I never ever want to leave!”
-Vanessa, a Junior High camper

Junior High weeks are an unforgettable experience! Campers get to encounter everything camp has to offer from the high ropes course and giant swing to extra free time and awesome day-trip options. Chapel services are filled with incredible, energetic worship and life-changing messages. As always, Junior High camp is an unplugged week! With chapels and devotions, testimonies from staff members, and conversations, campers have the opportunity to learn more about Jesus and what it means to live a life following and experience Him.
