Tween camp is for campers between the ages of 10 and 13. There’s something about being the “older kid” and “youngest teen” that makes one feel a bit “in-between!” This week is specially carved out for for them where we create a unique space for them to belong!
Check-in is between 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the first day of camp.
Pick-up is at 1:30 pm on the last day of camp.
Check back closer to summer to see what this year’s theme meal will be! Each week of camp we have a costume based theme meal. We decorate the dinning hall, play music to the theme, get into character and make it a fun event. Campers can participate by coming prepared with a costume. If your not sure what to do, no stress. Our staff are creative and will help make sure the whole cabin has fun with it!
What to Expect
Around 8:00 we wake up the campers and start off the day with some short wake up activities or games such as pillow fights, relay races or other fun challenges. Campers are usually still a little drowsy but they wake up just in time for breakfast.
During this two hour block of the day campers participate in many of the different activities we have at camp. Anything from tubing, climbing, drama, arts, archery and bumper balls, just to name a few.
Lunch & Tuck
After eating lunch in the dining hall it’s time for tuck – a shop with candy, drinks, camp clothing, and other cool stuff. Campers preorder from the tuck shop at breakfast time and have the order delivered to them right after lunch for them to enjoy afternoon.
We head down to the beach while the afternoon is still young and spend a few hours in the sun. At the beach campers can go tubing, build sand castles, play beach volleyball, frolic in the water, or just relax on the beach while having a great conversation with a friend.
After the beach there is time set aside for campers to hang out with their cabin and get a taste of the different things camp has to offer. All of the activities from skills time (tubing, climbing, arts, games, etc) can be done as a cabin.
Once every week we have a theme meal. Keep yours eyes open for when we announce our theme meals so you can put together a costume and come have a blast at supper!
Each night we play a massive wide game with the entire camp participating. Favorites include Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Civilization, and many others.
Mug Up is just a code word we use for an evening snack.
Everyone gathers for some time to worship together. The speaker will give a talk or someone will share their testimony during this time.
After some wind down time spent hanging out and getting ready for bed everyone hits the sack for the night.
