July 23 – July 29, 2017
For youth entering grades 8 or 9 in Fall 2017
Young Teen Camp is a week of programming tailored to campers entering the eighth and ninth grades in the fall. This week of camp features numerous outdoor experiences including an outdoor adventure day, chapel in the woods and an overnight camp out. There are also opportunities to try acting, kayaking, rock climbing and even producing a camp newspaper!
Since eighth and ninth graders are at a pivotal point in their lives, having their character shaped by the choices they make, the camping program is designed to take each camper out of his or her comfort zone and encourage them to focus on faith in Christ as the compass for their lives.
Camp Timberledge does not discriminate on the basis of color, ethnic origin, disability, race, or gender.
