04/18/21. With precautions still in place, Spring Heights has revamped what Camp 2021 will look like this year and we are so excited to share this news with our West Virginia Conference family!
First, we are expanding the DaySpring program. DaySpring is where Spring Heights Camp rolls into town and sets up at a local church for a week! Campers explore the Bible, sing silly songs, try their hand at archery, and learn Gaga Ball! It’s a great experience for youth in our communities AND DaySpring is coming to a church in each district this summer!
Second, campers and families are invited to come to camp in person, choosing one of two ways to enjoy our Spring Heights camp facility. One option is Family Camp, where the staff plans your schedule for the whole family, young and old alike, will have a great time at Family Camp!
The other option is a Family Retreat, where your family has the flexibility to schedule your own time. We will provide the space for you to explore all that Spring Heights has to offer!
Locations for DaySpring will be announced on May 1, so be on the lookout for the DaySpring host church in your area!
Follow the links below for the Family Camp Brochure, DaySpring Camper Brochure, and a DaySpring Church & Community Brochure!
We can’t wait to share the very best of Spring Heights Camp with our West Virginia Conference family this year!
** There is an emerging body of research that demonstrates that camp is much more than fun and games. There is something deeply significant and deeply theological happening at Christian camps across the country. This research reveals the long-term impacts of camp, effects that go far beyond the “camp high” that fades quickly after the experience.
The American Camp Association (ACA) began scratching the surface of the ongoing impacts of camp with their 2005 Directions study. They have shown that diverse camp experiences lead to growth in self-confidence, leadership, social skills, and other important elements of positive youth development.
