a great time for campers & counselors
The Christian Community has been hosting Children’s Camps in North America for over 50 years. There are and have been camps in Ontario, Canada, on the East Coast, Midwest and in Colorado and California. Each camp has its own character connected with its setting, staff and duration of the camp.
The intention is to bring children out of an urban environment into nature to experience the world in new and healthy ways. The strong daily and weekly rhythms, the caring interest of counsellors, the singing, the stories, the crafts, the wide-ranging activities carry the children through the two-three weeks of camp. Children are divided according to age and gender and will spend the whole camp together with their group. Each group has a counsellor (or two) who will be with their group continuously, eating, sleeping and doing activities.

For older campers (high schoolers entering 9th – 12th grade), much adventure awaits! This year we return to the Namekagon River for another canoe trip. The Namekagon River is a tributary of the St. Croix River. It is 101 miles long and is located in northwestern Wisconsin in the United States. Its course is protected as part of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
