Explore Camp

Explore is the perfect camp for first-time campers who are looking to spend their first few nights away from home. Campers will engage in all of the traditional camp activities such as swimming, hiking, campfire, Bible study, crafts, and more.

Explore camp provides children the opportunity to explore their independence and learn how to connect with other kids their age in a caring, Christian community.
