Summer Camp

Campers experience fun, spiritual, and challenging activities that aim to deepen their faith and strengthen their friendships. In groups, campers learn team-building skills and are challenged on the ropes course, canoe, and kayak on the Manatee River. They play games, create arts and crafts, and experience God’s love through great music, worship, and food. The camp sessions are led by chaplains (Episcopal Priests and Youth Ministers) who work with summer staff to offer programs that are meaningful and celebrate our Christ-centered diversity.

2024 Summer Camp sessions:

This shortened week is perfect for the first-time camper. Rising 3rd to 5th graders enjoy waterfront activities like canoeing, challenging themselves on the ropes courses, and creating a variety of arts and crafts during their stay.

Help your teen disconnect from their fast-paced lives and reconnect with their friends and faith. During this session, we’ll draw on their skills, talents, and insights to tailor a camp experience uniquely suited to them and embrace activities that bring them joy.

Looking to provide your middle schooler with an authentic “camp” experience? We have the camp for you! Campers spend their days kayaking or canoeing the Manatee River, getting creative with arts & crafts, playing a variety of sports, or challenging themselves on the ropes courses and zipline.

Elementary-aged campers have a blast engaging in a host of classic camp activities including swimming, canoeing, kayaking, creating arts and crafts, being challenged on ropes courses or canopy tree climbing, and playing games like Wacky Olympics.

Discovery Camp allows middle schoolers to strengthen their creative, leadership, and environmental skills by cultivating unique areas of interest. Discovery camp offers creative tracts including fishing, photography, outdoor survival, advanced arts and crafts, beginner guitar, and filmmaking. Campers will nurture their passions and further their relationship with God through these customized experiences.

This Discovery Camp offers high school teens a more intimate camp setting focused on strengthening their creative, leadership, and environmental interests. This session allows campers to nurture their passions through a discovery tract that includes fishing, photography, outdoor survival, advanced arts and crafts, and music, while still enjoying traditional camp activities. Embracing a space for imagination and play, our teen campers further their relationship with God and the many ways faith can shape our lives.
