"I got to leave all the troubles at my home and come grow in God and go back and use those lessons for those troubles." - Step Up Camper
1 week Option (June 10-16) • Step Up is one week of awesomeness. Imagine 130 Junior High Campers in a room singing the same praise song — with all the motions. Now you get a taste of Step Up. During this week, campers get to have crazy fun together with a purpose. Fun provides the start of friendships. Our Trained Staff and Counselors build meaningful relationships with campers, opening the door for deeper conversations young people long to have. Our speaker teaches the Bible in a way that relates to the questions they have. Based at Main Camp, this week is different than anything else they’d be doing back at home. Consider Step-Up 2 Week Option.
"[...] It builds character coming here and you make a lot of friends." - Step Up Camper
2 week Option (June 10-23) • When Step Up 1-Week ends June 17th, campers who have chosen the 2 Week Option head to Adventure Outpost for Week 2 – June 17-24. Based on principles of small group bonding, community and team adventure, this time away will open even wider doors of dialogue between campers, staff, counselors and the speaker for the week. Campers tell us how much they enjoy the relationships and time to discuss questions they have often been forming for years. This week includes adventures not available during week 1. Limited to 60.
"God is so much more than the person on the other side of your prayer [...] I learned from my counselor how to keep a strong relationship with God at home." - Step Up Camper
Horsemanship Classes and Lessons are an optional add-on for Kids’ Camp. Fort Wilderness is a member of the Certiffed Horsemanship Association and we follow their standards and techniques in order to promote a fun, safe and educational experience. Classes are spread out over 4 days, weather-permitting.
Rodeo Class (+$140): Cowboy Up! This class offers a chance for campers to learn about the fun sport of rodeo. Each class is divided into one hour of mounted games and one hour of learning skills needed for rodeo life such as barrel racing skills, roping and much more.
Trail Class (+$100): Designed for the weekend rider, campers are on a horse for approximately 45 minutes per day in God’s creation. Some riding instruction is given, such as crossing trail obstacles, controlling your horse at different gaits and basic horse info. It’s all done in a laid back, fun Fort way!
We welcome your family to drive your child up to Fort, take a tour and meet your counselor. You may also utilize our transportation. It is available for our summer youth programs, with pickups on opening Saturday and drop-offs on closing Friday of camp. We use a coach bus and/or vans, all chaperoned by trained Fort Staff.
