We are excited you are considering sending your child to camp this summer! Time spent at camp can be life-changing for a young person and the lessons learned and relationships built here will continue long after they have left. Cedarkirk offers residential camping for children and youth, families, and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. All of our programs provide opportunities for fun, learning, and spiritual growth.
For over 40 years, we’ve spent each summer providing a place apart for our campers. The kind of place where they can experience summer as it was meant to be: a place for exploration, for personal challenge, for building relationships, for relaxation, for growing closer to God – and for having fun!
Our summer programs are a ministry – and investing in kids is something we take seriously. Surrounded by God’s beautiful creation, under the guidance of nurturing counselors and staff, your child will experience and learn. Camp provides challenges aplenty for them physically, of course, but most important, it is a safe space for them to grow into themselves.
At the climbing wall or during Bible study, in a canoe on the river or in quiet discussion around a campfire, God’s love and the importance of community is felt as much as taught.
A program list and calendar for the summer of 2016 will be published in October. In the meantime, check out some of the pictures from this summer’s programs as well as our related pages (in the menu to the right) for more information. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions regarding our summer programs. We can’t wait to see you in 2016!
Summer Theme for 2016: FEARLESS FAITH
FEARLESS FAITH will help campers focus on how they become part of, gain support from, and build their own Christ-centered communities. We will help campers understand how to transfer their camp experience (making friends, enjoying nature, trying new things, challenging themselves) to their own neighborhoods and communities. They will be empowered to draw courage from friends, family, and community, stand up to injustice and help change attitudes, forgive others, and connect to and welcome all people.
