You and Me (K - 2nd) June 16 - 18
This is a time in which activities are programmed for both the parents and children. There is a time when the parents
are separated from their children and can share joys and challenges with each other at a coffee time and truly enjoy
the relaxing beauty of Camp Lackawanna.

Junior High Camp (6th-8th) June 16 - 22
This is a traditional camp for those who love and don't want camp to change. Its focus is on fellowship and
community. Structured and unstructured time will be provided so the youth will be able to facilitate long lasting
relationships with each other that will help them reinforce their faith. The Bible studies are open for discussion and
relevant to what the youth are facing.

Explorer (2nd - 3rd) June 19 - 22
This is a half-of-a-week camp where youth will get a chance to gain the independence of being away from home.
There are a lot of tag games and swimming along with age appropriate sports that are modified to be more suitable,
such as crab soccer.

Senior High Camp (9th - 12th) June 23 - 29
This is a traditional camp for those who love and don't want camp to change. Its focus is on fellowship and
community. Structured and unstructured time will be provided so the youth will be able to facilitate long lasting
relationships with each other that will help them reinforce their faith. The Bible studies are open for discussion and
relevant to what the youth are facing.

You Tube Camp (9th-12th) June 23 - 29
This is a camp for the senior high campers to bring all the devices and forms of technology to camp. They make
video throughout the week and then at the end of the week share their work. They can use them in creative ways in
community with each other and possibly even in a way that can benefit the camp -- possibly a great promotional
piece. Campers become involved in more than just the role of participant. It meets the campers where they are at in
today's culture.

Discovery Camp (2nd - 4th) June 23 - 29
This is a full week camp and is the first experience that children can have with a full week camp. This is a more
structured time with a lot of activity -based programming to keep the kids busy. The Bible studies are interactive.

MAD Camp (6th - 12th) June 30 - July 6
This camp will include both performing and practical arts such as drama, cooking, painting, pottery, dancing, etc.
There will be workshop leaders that have experience in the different fields that will help lead and share their own
personal insight and experience with the campers.

Sports Camp (7th-9th) July 7 - July 13
The majority of the activity blocks that are offered are all sports related. The all-camp games will be a form of
organized sports. We will end the week with the Olympics.

Junior Camp (4th - 6th) July 14 - 20
Much like Discovery camp this is a traditional camp the focuses on all the wonderful activities that camp has to offer.
There is canoeing, swimming, gaga pit, and great sing along worship music every night.

Junior Sports Camp (4th - 6th) July 14 - 20
The majority of the activity blocks that are offered are all sports related. The all-camp games will be a form of
organized sports. We will end the week with the Olympics.

Night Owl Camp (6th - 12th) July 21 - 27
This camp appeals to the desire of campers to stay up all night. The format of the camp provides scheduling that
allows them to do this while still getting an adequate amount of sleep. Due to the timing of the camp it also creates
new programmatic opportunities such as night time nature walks, star gazing, games that are adapted to the dark
using glow sticks -- a breakaway from the normal routine of camp while still providing the Christ centered community
in which they make lifelong friends.

VBS Day Camp (K - 5th) July 28 - Aug. 3
A 9am-3pm program in which kids get a small taste of camp and churches with smaller youth programs get the
opportunity to participate in a large VBS program. There are different workshops that are run by volunteers while the
counselors interact with the campers and support the workshop leaders.

Wilderness Adventures (8th -12th) July 28 - Aug. 3
This program utilizes nature and new experiences that are safe but can be thrilling. There will be backpacking and
canoeing during this camp, and if the caves open up again maybe some spelunking. The many possibilities for this
camp are being developed, but it's sure to be a tremendously meaningful experience interacting with God while deep
in the woods.
