Energetic boys ages 9-12 fill the campgrounds during this week of camp. High quality counselors and a dedicated staff strive to give the boys an exciting and memorable week at Boys Camp.
Boys Camp is full of tradition and is characterized by enthusiasm. One of the highlights of the week is an overnight camp out that takes the boys to various locations where they hike, cook over a fire, and sleep in tents. The older boys of Sioux cabin experience the adventure of a canoe trip down Autrain River.
This week is full of activities to keep young and active boys moving. They include archery, riflery, extreme art, mountain biking, waterskiing and more. And if the day's skill sessions and competitions aren't enough, each evening includes every campers favorite game—Capture the Flag!
Back by popular demand, George Farber will be our Chapel speaker in 2017. Returning campers will recall Chief George’s true stories about Noah and the ark (umbrellas were optional) and the reality that everyone is on one of two roads. Which road do you choose? Most of all, you’ll remember Chief George’s love of Jesus and his clear communication of God’s Word. Chapel is an unpredictable, jam-packed experience that will be one of your favorite times of the day!
Boys Camp's rich history includes solid Bible teaching and quality cabin devotion times as campers wind down for the night. It should also be noted that campers should be on their best behavior during the week, for outstanding graduates of Boys Camp are recommended by counselors to participate in the W.O.L.F. Trails backpacking trip!
