About this retreat

What are you looking for in a summer camp for your high school students? Sound Biblical teaching? Check! Intensely creative games and group challenges? Check! A beautiful location, opportunities for deep discussions, and authentic worship? Check, Check, Check! Oh yeah, and don’t forget the milkshakes. Check!

Summer Camp at Forest Home is an experience designed to challenge, encourage, and engage students in high school. Each activity during the week is purposefully planned to get them out of their normal routines and challenge them into something more significant, more adventurous, and more intentional. Our staff strives to keep the teaching relevant and Biblically-based, and they each look for ways to encourage students to have deep discussions, prayer, and quiet times of reflection. We want to partner with you and your volunteers to nurture your students in their journeys with Christ, prompting them to make their faith their own.

We also think campers should have loads of FUN while encountering their Creator, so we offer tons of options for recreation and outrageous group games. Competitions at the infamous Mud Bowl, the Giant Swing, kayaking, swimming, the Zip Line, sand volleyball, Blobbing, laser tag, Zorbing, campfires (and more!) are sure to create memories that will outlast any SnapChat post.
