Staff

Our staff go through a rigorous two week training process where we go in depth about everything from bible studies to emergency response situations.  All of the staff are first aid and CPR certified and have completed back ground checks.  Our ropes instructors are certified as well as our life guards.  Staff are mostly college age and have completed at least one year of college or are at least 19 years old.  We do have counselors in training that may be in high school, but they are used in age appropriate settings.

High Ropes Course

Not all ages can participate in all of the elements on the ropes course.  The more difficult elements are used by only the oldest youth, but all ages can use the climbing wall provided they are in good health and can appropriately use a climbing harness.

Bible Study Guide for Pastors and Adult Leaders

We want you to be familiar with what we are teaching. We will post a bible study guide that you can print off and share.  Please use it as you see fit.  If you are a Pastor leading students in a bible study for confirmation camp it could be helpful to know the theme for the summer as well as the theme verse for each day.  Every Pastor and adult leader will be given time each day to be with your students to teach material you bring or share in the teaching of our themes.  If you choose not to teach or use the ninety minutes that is o.k. too!  We are happy to accommodate your teaching needs whatever they may be.  Contact Jamie if you have any questions.  We will set aside ninety minutes every day for you to spend with your students for study, casual time together, or activities you would like to do with your students.  Let Jacob know if you would like more or less time, we can work with your needs.  If you are attending a confirmation camp feel free to contact Jacob for a list of other adult leaders and Pastors if you would like to work together to cover the teaching of materials.
