Experience absolutely everything that camp has to offer—make new friends, spend time on beautiful Lake Morgan, and experience God in worship, in nature, and in community. This week of incredible camp experiences provides campers with opportunities to explore faith in new ways as a part of a vibrant Christian community. This program has everything the die-hard camper knows and loves (Bonkers, anyone?)—as well as a few surprises—so whether this is your first summer or your fourteenth, this camp is for you! Includes an overnight canoe trip on Twin Lake and down the Shell River, an afternoon at Spirit Lake Beach, our full high and low ropes course, and more! Engage with your faith in an open, caring environment and explore what it means to be a person of faith as a young person in today’s world. Campers at Emmaus are empowered to live in a close-knit, faith centered community that focuses on care for self, care for others, and care for creation based in God’s love.
