GIRLS Camp

Girls Camp offers girls an opportunity to thrive learning about God and themselves in a supportive, active, and joyful environment. We play games, develop skills, have meaningful conversations, and encourage each other to challenge ourselves to be the best versions of ourselves. Most of the activities we do are “family style” - meaning that all of girls camp, including the camp director and practitioner, are present at the majority of the activities.

This year, we will be running our girls camp programs and boys camp programs simultaneously. The girls and boys programs will operate independently of one another for the majority of activities, and will have the opportunity to join together for camp wide games and other select activities. 

Each youth session lasts two weeks and includes a variety of camp activities, delicious meals, camp duties, Sunday School, Bible Lesson study and more! It’s the best two weeks of the year. Don’t miss it!

Junior Girls

Ages 7 - 13

Dates and Rates

Junior Girls is a fun-filled session for campers who want to have fun in a spiritually uplifting atmosphere. Junior campers participate in a wide variety of activities such as climbing, archey, boating, and craft, and play well-loved games like “Pirates and Cargo” and “Three Sticks.” Junior Girls participate in daily Lesson study, a Wednesday night testimony meetings, and Sunday School class at Camp. 

Session 1 (1 week) will have a focus on general camp activities, crafts, and games and is a great session if you want to sample all that camp has to offer!

Session 2 (2 weeks) allows campers to focus on an area of interest (boating, climbing, archery, etc) throughout the session while still having the opportunity to try everything at least once. During this session campers will take a one-night overnight trip on the island near our property - a highlight for many campers. They learn to tie knots to set up a tarp, and eat food cooked over a camp stove.

Campers may come for the first week of session 2 though we encourage the full two weeks. Campers are also welcome to join for all three weeks if they want to get the most out of the program!

Senior Girls

Ages 13 - 18

Dates and Rates

In addition to the many activities that Juniors do, Senior campers have the opportunity to take each skill a step further. Senior girls will do the ropes course, go rock climbing, learn basic sailing skills, kayak, swim, and play camp-wide games. While these activities bring in the fun, our focus is always in helping campers grow – spiritually, mentally and physically. Senior campers learn responsibility and leadership skills based on spiritual values, creativity and teamwork.

During this two-week program, Senior campers take an out-trip to a beautiful destination in our backyard of Howe Sound—the trip often includes hiking, a boating adventure, mountain biking, horseback riding, ziplining, or some other exciting multi-day trip off island. Each morning, Senior campers study the Christian Science Bible Lesson, and join the rest of camp in midweek testimony meetings and Sunday School at Camp.

Senior Boys and Senior Girls programs will have the opportunity to learn and grow together at select times throughout this session. However, the bulk of the session will be spent independently, especially the out trip.
