Elementary Adventure Camp is rooted in Christian community and outdoor adventures.  Together we will experience God’s love through the beauty of creation, new friends and caring mentors while going on outdoor adventures.  You can look forward to adventures like hiking, an extended canoe trip, team building on the challenge course, an overnight camp-out, archery, and more.  During our adventures we will learn new skills like knot tying, shelter building, fire safety, navigation, leave-no-trace ethics, and wilderness first aid.  Along the way we will have opportunities to strengthen values like patience, flexibility, and courage.  Throughout the week scriptures will guide us in exploring who we are and our relationship with God, others, and the natural world. 

Register by May 5th to receive a $25 Early Bird Discount.
