This year’s preteen camp will be held for the seventh year at the Sierra Christian Service Camp facility in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.
The camp provides a mountain escape that allows the campers and staff to be away from the city life below and instead be immersed in a beautiful part of God’s creation. Surrounded by mountains, trees, rock formations and wildlife, they always have something interesting to see.
The camp is at an elevation of 4,500 feet, so there are cool nights and warm days. Campfire, skits and sing-alongs are a regular part of camp life in the evenings. Camp begins with a half day of activities, followed by novelty Olympics and a large slip and slide.
The days are filled with activities, such as Christian Living, dance, arts and crafts, archery, BB guns, field games (gaga ball, kickball, etc.), challenge course, team building, swimming (in an indoor pool), hiking and more.
Dorms are fitted with restrooms and showers, but campers will need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow. Improvements continue to be made to the camp each year, and hopefully this year we will see continued additions.
We prepare our own food at camp, allowing us to provide healthy and tasty choices. Each day there is a salad bar available for lunch and dinner, in addition to the daily meal plan.
Dates and times:
Campers should arrive Monday, June 19 (unless campers have arrived with parents or staff on Sunday, June 18). Camper registration will take place Monday from 9 to 11 a.m.
Staff should arrive Sunday, June 19, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. A light lunch will be provided. Training will take place from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. Staff registration and dorm assignments will take place as possible throughout the day.
Specific staff needs:
We are looking for staff members who hold current certifications or have special experience in lifeguarding, food service, BB guns, arts and crafts, and archery.
