Pathfinders (Grades 6-8)

Meaningful Relationships and Outdoor Adventures!

Junior High students have the opportunity to unplug from electronic devices and busy schedules to focus on teamwork and communication while engaging in unique outdoor activities that challenge their limits. High-quality college students serve as excellent role models that help campers wrestle with faith questions and strengthen Biblical understanding.

Campers in this age group will develop a clearer sense of how God has made them individually, allowing them to consider their identity apart from friends and family. By engaging in acts of service, your child will begin to put all aspects of community development together, as they discover the emotional and physical needs of others…all while making memories that will last a lifetime!

“Our children had a wonderful time and were different when they came home, in a good way. They seem calmer, quieter, more considerate, less focused on themselves and more on others. As parents we were pleased and impressed to see such a difference after only one week at camp. Thank you for providing an experience that was both fun and fulfilling for them.” – Camper Parent
