Sr. High Programs (Grades 9-12)
Move beyond your comfort zone! Our Sr. High programs challenge campers to truly live in community as they learn more about themselves, their faith and their God. Each week offers campers the chance to grow in their faith while they experience a more rustic setting. These weeks aren't about the "next big thing" - instead they are about the One thing that matters!

A community experience in a rustic setting. Explorers stay in covered wagons and prepare seven of their meals over an open fire. In addition to the daily activities of Bible Study, worship, games, hiking, crafts and campfires, Explorers take an afternoon canoe trip and camp out at a local campground. Designed to be a small community, campers are not assigned to a specific counselor, however a 1 counselor:8 camper ratio is maintained.
