Youth Camp

For over 50 years Camp Perkins has provided an opportunity for youth to spend a week in the glory of God's creation and grow closer to him through the study of His Word.

That tradition continues even to this day. Youth have been coming to Camp Perkins year after year to experience time and again the Truth of our Savior Jesus Christ and the quiet peace of of his humbling creation. Many began as young campers and went on to serve in the ministry as staff members-- counselors, directors, and support staff.

Many camps offer recreation and time away from parents (a high priority for any youth!), and Camp Perkins offers all of that as well. But Camp Perkins offers more than swimming and basketball and hiking, it offers the Truth of Christ to all the youth that take a week out of their summer to stay here.

The weekly sessions begin on Sunday afternoon. Campers are dropped off and checked in before meeting their counselors and cabin mates. Campers are divided into cabin groups of eight.

Assigned counselors, responsible for campers on a 24hr/day basis, lead their cabin group through the program week.

Daily Activities

Each day of the week is divided into three parts:

  • Cabin Group Time
    Counselors lead their cabin group in activities that lend themselves to relationship building. Bible studies, team challenge course, cookouts and sleep-outs are all part of this process.

  • Optional Activities
    Campers have the opportunity to learn new recreational skills by choosing to participate in a number of the activities each day. Depending on the age group, these include, but are limited to, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing on our climbing tower, swimming, day hikes, playing in the mud pit or clay pit, arts and crafts, archery, monster soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, and many more classic and new camp games!

  • All Camp Activities
    The entire camp gathers together each day for recreational and educational opportunities: daily devotions and Bible studies, campfires, and evening games and programs such as talent shows.

Jumping into the Word

  • Morning Bible Study
    Active learning. Getting into the Word, and getting the Word into you. Learning takes place as God's truth intersects daily life. Youth are led into discovering and knowing God through His Word in the context of real life. Skits, dramas, and activities are a part of that learning process.
  • Nightly Devotions
    Devotions bring the day to a close with a brief look at the Word within the cabin group.

Friday Closing

Wrapping up each week, Friday brings a closing service and noontime meal. Parents are invited and strongly encouraged to attend both events. It is a time of sharing for campers, staff and parents of how the Lord's ministry at Camp Perkins has changed them.

We hope that we will will see you or your youth at Camp Perkins this summer. May the Lord Bless your day with peace and joy!
