What is Family Camp?
Family Camp is a six-night summer retreat at Fort where your family can bond deeply, grow closer to God, and play all day long. Campers tell us how impactful a week at Family Camp is for their family’s long-term health and closeness. Many families come back year after year to their 2nd home at Fort. If you long for a place where your kids and grandkids can safely roam and make friends, Fort’s a great choice.
Many use Family Camp to invite and intentionally bond more closely with friends and families from church, their neighborhood, grandchildren living far away, small groups, co-workers, older siblings who’ve moved, and more. There are so many ways that Family Camp can create steps towards the closeness you’ve always longed for.
There are options for families of many shapes, sizes and budgets. You can choose between our hotel-like Inn, Modern Cabins, Rustic Cabins, RV, Pop-up or Tent Sites (Prices TBA). More and more families are renting an RV or a pop-up locally and letting our local partner, shoederssportcenter.com, handle all the setup and cleanup details.
