Youth Camp programs are designed for campers seeking the traditional overnight camp experience.

Children and youth having completed grades 3 – 12 have full-week sessions. Weekend camp options are also available for youth having completed grades 1 – 5. Specialty camps are also offered for middle and high school youth. You can check out www.crosswayscamps.org for more information. Shepherd of the Hills will subsidize your week-long camp fee by $150
Family Camp is a great opportunity for the whole family to get away, relax and play together in Christian fellowship with other families. All the work of “traditional camping” is done for you at family camp. You stay in a nice cabin with running water and bathroom facilities. All of your activities are planned for you and run by the camp counselors. Families enjoy evening hikes, family kickball, zanny outdoor games, canoeing, swimming, fishing and evening worship by the campfire. Fantastic meals are prepared for you and are included in the registration fee. Family camps run from 7:00 pm on Friday night until 11:00 am on Sunday morning. Shepherd Of The Hills will subsidize your camp fees by $235 for a family of 4 & $275 for a family of 5. Check with our Compassion Ministry committee for sponsorship amounts for larger families.
Week-long Family Camp is also available at Imago Dei Village
There are several options for camp locations and dates – check out the Fort Wilderness and Crossways websites for more details. If you have another camp in mind, contact the Compassion Ministry committee for eligibility.
At Crossways, each family has their own cabin, and most have a private bathroom. At Fort Wilderness, you have lots of options from campground to cabins. Camp fees include all meals, lodging, and activities. At camp, you’re encouraged to participate in as many or few of the activities (boating, singing, fishing, worship, swimming, campfire, crafts, and games) as you choose. Both Crossways and Fort Wilderness have some fantastic facilities for you to enjoy. It’s a great time to get away in God’s creation.
