Day Camp allows children 6-12 years old to experience a wide variety of activities and adventures. These are used as tools to enhance a camper’s self esteem, confidence, and ability to interact with others. Children will be placed in appropriate age groups where they will play and work together in a positive atmosphere. Well-trained staff members will stay with the children and provide them with adult role models throughout the week. Day Camp is designed to offer a well-balanced variety of activities to suit the interest and needs of all ages. Our goal is to ensure a safe, positive environment where your child will continue to learn and grow physically, mentally, and spiritually all summer long.

Breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, activities, and transportation from Winston-Salem is included.

Teen Leadership Program

This three week program is designed for those 13-15 years old who have a drive to learn leadership skills. They will participate in group discussions, team building initiatives, and challenge course participation as we explore each camper’s inner potential and leadership abilities. They will also participate in service projects at camp and help with our day camp program. During this time we aim to teach the importance of sharing your talents and abilities with others while still having fun and enjoying classic camp activities with their peers.

Teen Leadership is 3 weeks long and excludes weekends. Campers may only participate in one session.
