Specialty camps differ from Western Town and Discovery Camps in that they have a very specific focus or theme. Girls Week encompasses all aspects of camp for the week and places a strong emphasis on community and building friendships, whereas Lifeguard Camp and Extreme run as a smaller offshoot of camp program that focuses on their specific content. See more detailed descriptions below.

Extreme Week started out with the idea to run a small elite program in the background of regular camp. It has evolved over time to become the most ridiculous and adventurous program we have, with a strong emphasis on forest and water activities.

 

Program activities include: wakeboarding, late night hikes, building shelters to sleep in, MANTRACKER, greased-up frozen watermelon football, human beyblades, FearFactor…the list goes on. This is camp program turned up to 11.

 

Extreme replaces daily horseback riding lessons with wakeboard lessons.

Girls Week is a specialty we do once a summer. At the heart of it, Girls Week provides the opportunity to for girls to connect and build great friendships. Run by girls for girls, this is a week of learning new skills, experiencing nature and enjoying laughter, friendship and the joys of living in community. We also seek to create an atmosphere for every young woman to build authentic and lasting relationships with God, who loves them and wants them to discover the potential of who they were created to be.
Want to become a lifeguard? This is the camp for you. Lifeguard Camp is two weeks long and trains candidates in the aquatic leadership awards, Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross as well as Emergency First Aid and CPR level B. With these qualifications graduates can work as assistant lifeguards. This camp is an excellent stepping stone for campers looking to take their National Lifeguard Service qualification in the near future but are also interested in growing their faith. There are no prerequisites but Bronze Star is recommended. Applicants should be good, fit swimmers able to follow technical instructions. Applications for Lifeguard Camp should be completed by campers themselves, not solely by parents/guardians. We are looking for applicants who are keen to develop aquatic leadership skills.

 

*Please note that program participation does not guarantee certification. Participants will have the opportunity to take the exams to receive Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross certifications. Certification will be given only if participants meet the high standards required by instructors and examiners.
