Due to Covid-19 and the extensive CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel all 10 weeks of traditional camp sessions in addition to having had to close the spring weekends since mid-March. Our summer, just like the spring, will not look like it has during the past 51 years; however, in order to provide an opportunity to still "come apart and rest for a while”, and enjoy the camp experience and beautiful surroundings while growing closer to God, we are offering a unique program for this summer.
On June 12, the state of Pennsylvania has declared our region to be in the Green zone, “a new normal” which gives us the opportunity to reopen with certain restrictions. We are excited to announce that we will be providing three long-weekend camp sessions for families and couples starting in mid-July (see dates below). Each camp session will start Friday evening after supper and end Monday morning after breakfast.
The following practices will be in place during each session:
- Each family or couple will have their own sleeping area and bathroom for their exclusive use.
- All facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before and after each session.
- Because of the CDC regulations, the sessions will be different than a typical Family Weekend. Meals will be “take-out” style. Bible lessons, session activities, and meals will be at your designated “family picnic table” in the pavilion.
- Shared spaces such as the main building and activity center will be closed, but we will have fun and safe outdoor activities planned for each weekend! The pool will also be open, so bring bathing suits, towels, and your own lawn chairs. In case rain changes some of our plans, be sure to bring rain gear, umbrellas, and board games.
We will have space in each session for about 10 families or couples. Why not organize a group of families and couples to get out of the house and, while practicing physical distancing, draw near to God with a mountain-top experience! Space is limited and room assignments will be on a first come first serve basis!
Please register online early, so that we can prepare accordingly.

Winter Escape CampDecember 26 - 30th, 2020 Ages 13-19
CANCELED FOR 2020 - If you are ages 13 to 19, Winter Escape is a great way to close out the year. It takes place between Christmas and New Year’s and offers activities such as ice skating, downhill skiing (bowling option for those who do not like to ski), indoor games, coffee house, group discussions, and more. It’s a great time to be with friends or to make new ones!
