New Friends

Sometimes camp is all about making friends.  Here at Tekoa, friendships new and old are cultivated and strengthened.  We hear stories all the time from campers about the positive relationships they made while attending Camp Tekoa.  All of Tekoa's camp programs last for a week or less, so our programs are designed to help nurture positive relationships in this short amount of time.  Once a camper is registered for camp, they are assigned "family groups" that are led by two family group leaders (counselors).  Each family group is made up of 6-8 boys and 6-8 girls of the same age and camp registration.  These family groups participate in all of the camp activities together throughout the camp week.  This environment allows campers to build trust among one another and helps strong bonds to be created within a week's time.
