Immerse yourself in nature and put your survival skills to the test! Treehouse Camp is for the true nature lovers who want a rustic camp experience. It’s a prefect way to get away from all the distractions and dive deeper into your faith. You can find a quiet spot in the woods to reflect and read the Bible, and sing songs and worship God around the campfire!
Our treehouses are located on a secluded ridge, about ½ mile walk from the rest of camp. They are completely off the grid with no electricity or running water. You’ll learn how to start and tend a fire and how to cook outdoors. Treehouse campers journey back to the main camp every evening for dinner and to take a shower.
You will learn backcountry skills and have fun with activities like a treasure hunt in the woods, building a raft to float across the lake, and making your own bow and testing it out at the archery range. You can also join in the fun of some of our traditional camp activities like swimming in the lake!
The theme for summer 2021 is Fearless Faith. What does it mean to be a part of a Christian community? How can the Church be a resource that gives you confidence and courage? You will explore how you are a part of the Church and what that means about how we relate to one another and the world. We will take a closer look into the stories of six different heroes from the Bible and learn from their courage. Watch how the strength of Christian community casts away fear and replaces it with fearless faith!
