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 outdoor experience.
