There is still time to register for summer camp at Sumatanga!

Summer 2019 features opportunities for young children and their grandparents; elementary, mid-high and high school students; and youth and adults with intellectual and cognitive disabilities.

Traditional Summer Camp Experiences at Sumatanga

During a life-changing week at camp, participants will have opportunities to grow in their faith, meet new friends and make lasting memories.

Elementary camps are designed to encourage and inspire campers on their faith journeys through Bible exploration, worship, singing, and Christian community. Campers also participate in traditional activities like swimming, hiking, canoeing, crafts, group games, and so much more!

Mid-high camps give youth an opportunity to personally engage in God's world and Word as they transition from hearing to actively listening and discussing their faith with peers. Campers are placed in family groups to create intentional Christian community. Mid-high offers more freedom to choose activities each day...swimming, hiking, Alpine tower, softball, archery, and other exciting activities.

Senior high camps offer a week of spiritual formation and leadership development through creative worship, intentional fellowship, and outdoor adventure. Activities like hiking and climbing, swimming and canoeing, crafts, field games and other favorites provide daily recreation. Campers also participate in small groups for discussion and reflection as well as community formation, worship, and empowerment.

All camps feature favorite recreational opportunities such as pool and lake swimming, canoeing, paddle-board, creek-stomping, hikes, games, archery, alpine tower and swing, softball, folk dancing, gaga ball, music/choir, craft hut, ping pong, 4-square, corn-hole and board games.

Youth and Adult Special Camps

Sumatanga has hosted camps for youth adults with intellectual and cognitive disabilities for over 30 years. Every summer, campers and volunteers come together to celebrate God, friendship and nature.

Our camps maintain a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio of counselors to campers. Female and male campers bunk separately but spend waking hours with their family groups. All camps have a registered nurse on site to administer medications and assess the health of campers.

Campers participate in activities including canoeing, swimming, low ropes, hiking, crafts, picnics, music and games. After lunch, a daily nap is thoroughly enjoyed to ensure plenty of energy for the afternoon! Evening activities involve everyone together for movies, stories around the campfire, games and dance. Fee is $400.
