Why Camp?

Junior High Camp is a place where lives change. Campers are supported and encouraged by fun loving cabin leaders. They hear from a speaker who is passionate about Jesus and sing songs with the worship band. Optional camper activities include outdoor laser tag, surfing, Gaga Ball, 9 Square, ropes courses and so much more. There's no such thing as bored at Junior High Camp. Junior High Camp is for students entering 7th through 9th grade. Don't miss out on this life changing week, July 23-29.

About Our Cabin Leaders

Koinonia's cabin leaders make camp extra special. Each cabin normally has two cabin leaders. One leader is over 17 or a high school graduate. Assistants can be fifteen or older. Our cabin leaders are volunteers who are recruited or selected after going through Koinonia's hiring process. The applicant submits an application, along with references. Then, the applicant submits a background check and completes a child protection course. Finally, the applicant attends Koinonia's Cabin Leader Training weekend and CPR/First Aid training. To top it all off, our cabin leaders really love spending time with campers. They delight in the opportunity to share the love of Christ and the joy of camp.
