Elementary Mini Overnight Camp 

7-9 years old    

 

Elementary Mini Overnight Camp is a shortened version of our weeklong elementary resident camp. This four day, three night camp is a fun introduction for our first-time or younger campers. Activities are geared with group interaction in mind, so that campers are encouraged to make friends with other group members, and stay busy from morning to night. Most activities are similar to the full week Elementary Resident camp where campers share in activities such as boating, swimming, tree climb, zipline, arts & crafts, hiking, challenge course, campfires, talent show (Thursdays) and more. Campers will meet with the pastor once during their stay to hear stories about Jesus Christ and to ask questions about church and the Bible.This four day, three night camp is a fun introduction for our first-time or younger campers.

Elementary TKO (Overnight) Camp

For 8-11 Years Old Campers

Come and be a part of the Camp Tekoa experience! Camp Tekoa has a progressive overnight camp program, which encourages campers to engage in age-appropriate activities, allowing them to be challenged physically, mentally, and spiritually year-after-year. Overnight campers learn parallel lessons between these activities and their own personal spiritual walk. It is easy to spend time learning and reflecting in God's natural world and to feel Christ's presence throughout the week. Our Elementary TKO Campers are the youngest age group to participate in our high adventure challenge elements. Some of these elements include the tree climb and our 350 ft. lake zipline.Camp Tekoa has a progressive resident camp program, which encourages campers to engage in age-appropriate activities, allowing them to be challenged physically, mentally, and spiritually year-after-year.
