July 30 – August 5, 2017
For youth entering grades 4 or 5 in Fall 2017
Designed for first time campers, our Junior camp program is created to offer young campers a carefully supervised introduction to sleep-away camp.
From morning wake-up to evening “Taps”, campers are involved in age-appropriate activities including an introduction to the Bible, crafts, games, hayrides, fishing, hiking, kayaking, outdoor exploration classes, swimming, camp fires with smores and an all camp bonfire.
This Christ-centered program will be a positive and life changing experience for the young, first-time camper.
Camp Timberledge does not discriminate on the basis of color, ethnic origin, disability, race, or gender.
About Your Junior Camp Director: Mary Hankins
Being born into a large family, and raised on a farm, offered Mary countless opportunities for hiking, camping and leading her younger siblings on outdoor adventures. But it wasn’t until she was a parent herself that Mary was first introduced to Camp Timberledge. She then spent several summers as a Young Teen camp counselor.
In 2007, Mary took the reigns as Director for Junior Camp, shifting her 20-plus years of Sunday school teaching and youth ministry event planning into high-gear. Her passion for Camp Timberledge ensures that all young campers feel supported and are encouraged to thrive in what is for many, their first “sleep away” camping experience.
