Who we are...

Every summer Tomah Shinga is filled with youth experiencing Christ in the Flint Hills through our week long residential ministry.  Campers worship, play, do service and grow in their faith together as they explore how to take Christ into the world with them as they leave Tomah Shinga.  

Tomah Shinga is more than just a summer camp.  We want to partner with you all year long.  With your family.  With your church.  With your school.  If you want to build up your faith community consider a day retreat, over night, or weekend retreat. You will have access to a lodge with full kitchen, four cabins that can house your group comfortably, high and low ropes and miles of trails. 

Consider yourself invited to be a part our ongoing ministry to youth, families and congregations.  Our ministry is growing to include veterans, people with disabilities,  service to people in urban areas and adventure based ministry.  Call any time with questions, ideas or for a conversation about Camp Tomah Shinga and our ministry.

Stop by and we would be happy to give you a camp tour and talk about how we can serve you and your ministry needs!
