Reason for recommending this program:

  • This camp is a family affair! Parents and children share a few short days together within nature. This is a time where parents and children can be in a relaxed and fun environment and see each other in a different environment and learn new things about each other and themselves.
  • Family members usually leave camp with a renewed appreciation for each other based on their shared experience of God-centered relationships and the purity of nature.

Result/Effectiveness:

  • This camp program has been running for 20 years and more youth and families join every year.

Approx. cost for running the program:

There are day fees, partial day fees and overnight stay fees. The camp is run on registration fees, and private donations.
