WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT CAMP?

CLEAR GOSPEL MESSAGE

The gospel isn’t merely one ingredient in our programming mix. It’s the reason for everything we do. Our staff know teenagers as well as their bibles. They unwrap and animate God’s truth in ways that connect with students. Students will hear the gospel of Jesus in rally and in breakouts, then wrestle with it in group cabin time, tawg times, and all those unscripted moments between campers and counselors that our summer camp experience delivers.

DYNAMIC WORSHIP

Starlit group worship around the campfire and time alone in His creation. We nurture the attitude of worship from sunrise to sunset. Just step out of your cabin, and you can’t help but acknowledge God here in the midst of His majestic creation. Personal quiet times, small-group prayer, or a peaceful sunrise—you’ll have plenty of options for exalting the lord. For listening to him, too. (It helps that distractions are few here—no phones or iPods, for instance.)

GROUP DEBRIEF

After every night rally students will have heard a incredible message about God and just experienced worship like never before and we unpack in their cabins how God has been moving. Did they experience anything, learn something new, accept Jesus for the first time. Our cabins times are critical for connecting and unpacking how God is moving in our students.

LOCATION

It is a place of great natural beauty, with warm bright summer days, cool starry nights, crisp colorful autumns, cold snowy winters, sparkling water, and woodsy wilderness surroundings. We meet at Sky Mountain Camp ground, tucked around a beautiful lake 30 minutes for the town of Truckee up highway 80 and 20 minutes of the highway. It’s like God dropped you out in the middle of nowhere.

THEME

The theme is a creative and practical link between the fun, entertaining aspects of camp and our presentation of the Gospel. While we believe that the theme is a critical part of the camp experience, it is our desire that by the end of the week it becomes background to the Biblical truths taught throughout the week. Our theme this year is “Inked.” as in God’s words on your students hearts forever. The dramas, skits, games and other programming elements are used to capture campers’ attention, win their trust, and direct their focus to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

ACTIVITIES

We have an arsenal of age-appropriate summer activities for your students. Each afternoon they will enjoy team competition games and then have free time to canoe, kayak, zip line, or rest with their friends around the lake!

YOUTH CAMP LOCATION

Camp is hosted at Sky Mountain Camp in the Tahoe National Forest.

It is tucked away under the tree-tops beside a beautiful lake about 30 minuets away from the town of Truckee up Interstate 80.

HOW WE CARE FOR YOUR STUDENTS

Helping your child grow in their faith

As parents, we want to see our children grow in their faith. While at camp, your child will be around counselors who are young, fun role models that are open about their love for God. This always make a strong impression on campers and helps them grow in their faith.

Our top goal is to integrate faith and fun throughout each day of camp. Counselors are always looking for teachable moments during fun activities.

Camp Counselors are emotionally invested in your child

Your child will be with the same counselors the entire week. This gives counselors the time to get to know your child and become emotionally invested in their lives. A counselor’s sole purpose is to build a relationship with your camper and make sure they are well taken care of and included at camp.

Your camper will never be left alone

Counselors are on duty 24/7. Counselors stay in cabins with their campers and spend the whole day with these cabin groups, participating in activities and leading small group sessions. This ensures that campers are never left alone.

Trained medical staff manage your child's medical needs

Working with our professional medical staff, counselors ensure campers receive the treatment and medications they need. If your camper takes medications, they will receive the right dose at the right time, every day.

Policies and procedures to ensure your child's safety

At every level, staff members are not permitted to be alone with campers. Campers and staff must always be within view of others or in groups of at least three. Additionally, we make it a point to help educate parents on how to keep their children safe.
