Adventure Camp (Coed Ages 5-10)
There is no better place to be a kid this summer! Adventure Camp is designed to give your young camper a safe and adventure-filled summer camp experience with age-specific ‘villages’, a high staff-to-camper ratio of 1:3, and engaging weekly themes.
Whether swimming or boating for your next level, making something special in crafts or pottery, climbing the low ropes course, riding the mountain bike trails or exploring creation, every activity at Adventure Camp is designed to challenge you and to help you grow.
Adventure Camp creates space for every camper to build authentic relationships—with friends, well trained leaders who are there to support and mentor them, and most importantly with God who loves them and wants each of them to discover the potential of who they were created to be.

Girls’ Camp is a place bursting with excitement as girls jump into amazing experiences like camp wide games, action-packed program and theme events, activities like swimming, kayaking, rowing, horseback riding, high ropes, sports, crafts, and the opportunity to build great friendships.
At the heart of Girls’ Camp is the opportunity to grow through learning new skills, experiencing creation, and enjoying laughter, friendship and the joys of living in community. At Girls’ Camp we also seek to create a fun and exciting place for every young woman to build authentic and lasting relationships with God who loves them and wants them to discover the potential of who they were created to be.
Boys’ Camp (Ages 11-16)
Boys’ Camp is the ultimate action-packed overnight summer camp adventure. During each session at Boys’ Camp you can see boys sailing, kayaking, riding the dirt jump bike park, flying down the zip line, being launched off the BLOB, playing frisbee golf or sports, woodworking in crafts, or sneaking through the Muskoka forest while playing an epic wide game!
Boys’ Camp is also a place where young men learn about God’s love for them and discuss what a relationship with him could look like through small group discussion and mentoring relationships with staff. Boys’ Camp is full of crazy summer camp experiences, great friends, and awesome overnight camp adventures.
