Campers expand their bodies and spirits through adventures rooted in Christian love at Elementary Adventure Camp. At adventure camp campers learn, explore, and grow in faith. They experience God’s love through the beauty of creation and the relationships they build with new friends and caring mentors while experiencing challenging adventures together.

There are a variety of adventures campers can participate in: hiking, cooking over a fire, an extended canoe trip, special off-site field trips, team building on the challenge course, an overnight camp-out, and Suttle Lake Camp’s onsite activities. More than just fun, all of these help campers learn skills and values like patience, flexibility, and courage. As a special treat, adventure campers will be in camp at the same time as the Mid-High Adventure Camp to give a taste of things to come!
