Teen Camp 2023

Teen Camp is coming up fast June 12th-16th and we want you and your student(s) to feel equipped and ready for all that comes with this amazing experience. We believe that this could be one of the best weeks of your student’s life, and that means putting aside distractions and fully focusing on God.

We are so excited about what God is going to do during the week of camp!

  • If your camper is bringing medication to camp, please make sure it is in the original bottle and have all medication in a ziplock bag labeled with your campers name with the medication form filled out.

Mail or letters for your students

  • If you have “mail” you would like your camper to receive while at camp we can bring it up for you. We will collect it when you check-in your students on Wednesday. Please label the envelope with the name and day you want them to receive it. 
  • We will keep you updated on when we will return Friday, June 16th. Please plan to pick up your student sometime in the mid-afternoon.

Kids Camp FAQs

Great question! Students who work well in a group setting and are able to follow directions will thrive at camp!

Students are placed on teams of approximately 8-12 students with 1 leader.

Every camp leader with Realife Students is a volunteer from our church who has completed a comprehensive process that includes:

  • Completed and approved volunteer application
  • Criminal background check

A professional food team prepares three meals every day. For children with food sensitivities, simple buffet alternatives are always available.

We have a large lake with tons of fun water inflatables and activities! Every child and leader is required to wear a life jacket at all times if they are in the water, regardless of depth. We have staff and lifeguards posted at all swimming activities.
