What will I do at camp?


Be mentored

CREW are led by our amazing CREW Leaders who are responsible for helping them grow in their walk with Christ, as well as learn all the ins and outs of camp life. Each day, they will engage in bible studies and tons of activities that will challenge them to grow in teamwork and leadership.


Our Staff team all remember the days of serving in the Dish Pit! This is where we all got our start, and it is HARD WORK. CREW students truly learn the work ethic by serving on DISH CREW!

Hydro TEAM

CREW students help keep camp HYDRATED! Each day, they will be responsible for making sure all of our camp staff and campers have full, ice cold watercoolers!

Nights out

Each week, our CREW Leaders will take our CREW Students for fun nights out together. This helps grow their bonds and gives them a chance to have tons of fun outside of camp together.

Be campers!

Each day, CREW students will have time carved out to just be campers. They'll get to participate in all of the fun of camp, from ziplines to Archery Tag to Nerf War to BLOBBING!
