Summer Camp Information
For over 50 years Slumber
Falls Camp has been providing a quality experience in
Outdoor Ministry to thousands of children and youth.
It is our goal to touch
the lives of children with the love of God for all
creation. Our mission calls us to be inclusive of all.
No matter who you are or where you are on lifeís
journey, you are welcome here!
Camps are typically a week long and have approximately
40-60 campers. We intentionally keep our numbers low to
provide each child with the opportunity for lots of
individual care and attention. Over the years, Slumber
Falls Camp has been known for creating lasting
friendships. With our small cabin groups, team building,
and spiritual enrichment, it is easy for campers and
counselors to form those lasting relationships that
model our relationship with God.
Activities include group games, team building exercises,
engagement with scripture, singing, skits, swimming,

Looking at issues of peace and justice is another
important component of our program. During the week of
camp, we discuss the need for peace in our world. Jesus
came among us as the Prince of Peace and he calls us to
a ministry of peacemaking. Another important component
of our program is our care for creation. Slumber Falls
Camp is environmentally aware and each week we educate
our campers about the importance of being good stewards
of Godís world.
Spiritual nurture is a hunger among our youth. Each
night at Vesper Point, overlooking the river below, the
entire camp family comes together for worship. We share
our joys and our concerns with each other in a community
of love and acceptance. This moving experience has given
many campers direction and purpose for the journey
We look forward to being
able to serve the children and youth who pass through
our cabins, touching one life at a time.
