Tell boring summers to take a hike. Come to Trail Camp instead! Climb to new heights, sleep under the stars, take a swim, tube or learn how to wakeboard, study God's Word in the great outdoors and burn a marshmallow over a roaring campfire! This and more awaits our Trail campers every summer.
Students in grades 7 and up may participate in this unique seven-day, six-night outdoor experience. Campers spend their first night at Camp Judson before heading to a nearby lakefront for five days of tent camping, hiking, boating and growing closer to God. Campers spend their final night back at Camp Judson.
Camp Judson staff make several drops throughout the week to ensure Trail campers are adequately supplied with food and other amenities. All campers are expected to pitch in to help counselors prepare meals at their campsite.
