In partnership with the Lutheran Church (Upstate NY Synod), Senior High Camp seeks to walk with, encourage, and guide high school students along their faith journeys in a camp setting. At Senior High Camp, youth are encouraged to be themselves, grow in their faith, and enjoy all the benefits of summer camp fun. Whether it is hiking, eating, attending a class, or small group time, community is of primary importance.
A Three-Pronged Approach is used to make Senior High Camp a place of community and fun. Campers choose from several workshops throughout the week that are relevant to them. Small groups, or family groups, build relationships and help campers address concerns in their lives, as well as learn to work with others. Evening activities combine the best of larger community learning and fund and vary from year to year. Campers also have ample opportunity for free time and normal camp activities like hiking, swimming, and boating.
