Teens tend to crave more interactions with their peers and they enjoy high energy situations in larger groups. That's exactly what they will get in Engage. It's a large centralized camping experience that combines the fun and energy created by a large group dynamic, while still keeping hold of the value placed on the intimate relationship of counselor and camper.
Solo time in the morning introduces the bible story of the day. Campers read this on their own and reflect individually by answering questions related to their reading. Counselors then lead a brief small group on it. Around lunch time, the small group discusses the same story from the morning to provide another way for the campers to connect with the key characters and principles.
Club is a time for funny skits, a worship set with the band and a dramatic performance. The performances present real life issues for middle school campers that are processed afterwards in a small group.
Every evening, we have a fun, epic event for all Engage campers. This is a time to bring everyone together and pull off something big! Crud Wars is the tradition - think giant mud war with as many as 200 middle schoolers.
"SpringHill is a fun, safe environment for kids to strengthen relationships and gain confidence while learning about the teachings of the bible."Camper Parent
As a parent, we know it's important to see your child grow in their faith.This is also extremely important to us, and one of our main goals while your child is at SpringHill. Our counselors are young, passionate, fun role-models who are open about their love for God and God's love for your child. Our top goal is to integrate faith and fun throughout each day of camp, and counselors are always ready to deliver a life lesson during fun activities.
Your child will be with the same counselors the entire week. This gives counselors the time to get to know your child and become emotionally invested in their lives. A counselor's sole purpose is to build a genuine relationship with your camper and make sure they are well taken care of and included at camp.
Counselors stay in cabins with campers and spend the whole day with these cabin groups, participating in activities and leading small group sessions. This ensures that campers are never left alone and are being consistently supervised by the same person for their entire experience.
Homesickness is not uncommon at camp - usually because it may be a child's first time away from home for an extended period of time. We are aware of this and love to care for and pray for each child who is having a difficult time being away from mom or dad. We keep parents in the loop so they know if their child experiences homesickness and we work with parents to figure out the best course of action. Most of the time, homesickness occurs right before bed, so our counselors are trained in how to anticipate and care for a child who may be missing home.
Working with our professional medical staff, counselors ensure campers receive the treatment and medications they need. If your camper takes medications, they will receive the right dose at the right time, every day.
At every level, staff members are not permitted to be alone with campers. Campers and staff must always be within view of others or in groups of at least three. Additionally, we make it a point to help educate parents on how to keep their children safe.
