Camp for a Week, Friends for Life!

Slumber Falls Camp Summer Programs

Slumber Falls Camp offers a variety of camps that provide age appropriate activities and curriculum for campers in a safe, loving, and nurturing environment.  One of the strengths of Slumber Falls is the dedicated staff and volunteers who encourage children and youth to explore the beauty and vastness of God’s creation.  Campers engage in dynamic daily lessons, fun yet deeply intentional family groups, spiritual activities and worship experiences, and many skill building opportunities designed to foster competency and resilience.  Slumber Falls Camp has come to symbolize a variety of images for past campers from a sacred environment to a place of healing and restoration to a fun and deeply enriching camp filled with incredible relationships.

Finding the right camp can be tough.  Descriptions of the camps are below.  Also, our policy allows for campers a grade above or below the targeted group to register.  This allows for more flexibility for siblings and friends to stay together if they desire.  For exceptions beyond this policy, please contact the camp office.

CIT Camp– June 12-15

CIT Camp equips passionate young people (completed 9th-11th grades) who desire to serve as resources to our younger camps while gaining skills, competencies, and experience that will allow them to excel as future counselors and leaders.  This camp focuses on youth development, camper safety, effective discussion leading, understanding child development, organizing games, activities, best camp practices, and worship experiences to name a few areas of focus.  Any young person is required to go through this training before they are allowed to CIT at a camp. Once a youth has completed this camp, they can continue coming back as a CIT without repeating this camp in future years as long as they continue to excel as a CIT.  CITs that attend this camp have priority the same summer.

Color Splash – June 16-19

Color Splash is a new, four day LGBTQ+ focused, Christian summer camp experience.

Color Splash will promote an intentionally safe and brave space that welcomes all youth. We have two tracks at this event – Junior High and Senior High – in order to offer programs that are relevant and meaningful to the campers. Programming for both age groups will run parallel, each with its own appropriate age group activities. Programing for these four days will include:

  • Empowering workshops.
  • Open and affirming spiritual and worship opportunities
  • Opportunities in the musical, visual and performing arts.  

We know that many LGBTQ+ young people face significant challenges, anxiety and fear when participating in Christian/ faith-based programs. Slumber Falls Camp is inclusive and creates healthy environments and safe places for young people to grow, develop and live into their true authentic selves.

Springs Alive– June 22-25

This camp for kids who have completed the first and second grades. This camp helps children acclimate to the camp environment through lots of activities and hands on involvement from the staff.  While this camp only spans four days, children learn Bible stories, engage in fun group activities, swim, create arts and crafts, go on hikes, and explore God through creation.  Campers experience a high staff to camper ratio which is around 1:3 so that they get great supervision, high staff interaction, and diverse skill sets.

Sports Camp– June 26- July 2

Sports Camp offers a more active youth camp experience to connect to others and form a community through games and sporting activities.  Sports Camp incorporates leadership development skills while using sports as the vehicle for the application of these skills. Campers experience a variety of sports throughout the week.

Roaring Rapids– June 26- July 2

This camp consists of the oldest group of youth at camp, youth that have completed 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.  Like Living Waters, the camp is more intense and speaks to the current context of the participants.  Counselors are older, more mature, and serve as spiritual guides and mentors.  The relationship with these campers seeks to help them mature into active, aware, and passionate members of the church.  Counselors help them uncover their personal gifts and how they can use them to transform lives and communities.  Campers are encouraged to wrestle with various theological stances and to develop skills to articulate their beliefs yet be humble to continue to grow and develop.

Streams of Faith 1 July 3-9

We have two camps for children who have completed grades 3-5.  These week long camps help campers develop meaningful relationships through family groups, games, activities, swimming, arts and crafts, and worships.  Campers are encouraged to explore the daily lessons and week long themes in age appropriate ways.  Campers have the option of participating in talent shows, carnivals, vesper services (nightly worship), and small groups.  These camps offer a variety of approaches to keep campers engaged and activities varied.  Each camp is unique to the directors, and both offer amazing opportunities for campers to build life long memories and friendships.

Geek Week– July 3-9

Geek Week at Slumber Falls connects young people to one another through playing games, mainly table top games and their variants.  This camp is targeted for 6th to 9th graders (plus or minus a grade).  Our world is complex and diverse, and our children must learn the skills to navigate in uncertain waters.  This camp teaches leadership skills, self-confidence, critical thinking, memory retention, and communication skills to highlight a few targeted areas.  In addition to table top games, campers will experience games and activities throughout the camp which include swimming, evening activities, arts and crafts, campfires, and other traditional camp programming.  This camp is limited in space due to the nature of programming, so sign up early!

Eco Camp– July 10-16

Eco Camp is one of our specialty camps that helps deepen campers’ spiritual connection to the living world around us.  The curriculum focuses on ecology and spirituality and helps youth not only connect to God in creation, but also teaches them how to respect the sacredness of all of creation and to be advocates for the environment.  Eco Campers have daily learning activities, games, family groups, arts and crafts, swimming, and other fun activities.

Living Waters– July 10-16

This camp targets youth who have completed 6th through 8th grades and serves as a transitory type of camp experience from children to youth camping. While retaining many of the activities from prior camp experiences, starts to introduce more complex discussions relevant to young teenagers and  engages in deeper spiritual focus, service components, and family group discussions.  Leadership opportunities are worked into this program as well as a variety of activities that are designed to build skill sets and competencies.  In addition to the theme of the summer, youth at this camp explore topics on building meaningful friendships, addressing bullying, exploring their spirituality, service, justice, fairness, and other relevant topics.  This is a pivotal camp for shaping youth and their faith. Skilled counselors are sought out to better respond to the questions, issues, and needs of this age group.  The bonding that occurs at this camp is often carried into the older camp and young adult retreat experiences.

Streams of Faith 2– July 17-23

We have two camps for children who have completed grades 3-5.  Streams of Faith 2 is similar to Streams of Faith 1 only it’s held in July rather than June and has a different Director.  These week long camps help campers develop meaningful relationships through family groups, games and activities, swimming, arts and crafts, and worships.  Campers are encourages to explore the daily lessons and week long themes in age appropriate ways.  Campers have the option of participating in talent shows, carnivals, vesper services (nightly worship), and small groups.  These camps offer a variety of approaches to keep campers engaged and activities varied.  Each camp is unique to the directors, and both offer amazing opportunities for campers to build life long memories and friendships.
