Kids are Our Inspiration

 Our trained and loving counselors and staff bring high-energy and fun to each day. We keep the ratios small, so friendships can be fostered and individualized attention can be given to your child.  Beyond the 4 weeks at camp, we offer a weekly 4REAL Children's Ministry for ages 3 years to 6th grade, a vibrant youth ministry for jr. & sr. high, as well as the beloved Upward Basketball league.
