Summer Camp Sessions
Serious Fun. Powerful Purpose.
Kids Age 4 - Grade 2 accompanied by 1 or more grandparents
Come make memories that will last a lifetime! There is no better place than Holy Ground to play, learn and worship God together. This one night camp packs a week of fun into 23 hours. Campers are accompanied by one or more grandparents for this fun sleepover at the CCC. While at camp you will have time for swimming, hiking, arts and crafts, singing, campfire and s'mores, as well as age appropriate Bible lessons.
Campers can choose to sleep in bunk-style cabins or upgrade to hotel-style rooms for an additional fee.
Campers age 0-18 accompanied by an adult family member
Come take a break from all the hustle and bustle of life at Family Camp! Start your summer off right with time away to bond as a family. Family Camp is designed to be a laid-back weekend where children can reconnect with God and each other.
Lots of free time is built in for you to enjoy the grounds. Structured activities include worship, campfire and s'mores, Bible stations, and more. Grandparents as well as parents are able to accompany children to Family Camp.
Families can choose to sleep in our bunk-style cabins or upgrade to hotel-style rooms for an additional fee.
Beginner Camp is a 3 day, 2 night experience for boys and girls who may not be ready for an entire week away from home. During the mornings our Beginner Campers go on Bible Walks all over the grounds, learning more about how to use their Bibles, how to talk to God, and how to be kind to each other. Campers will also get to experience all the perks of summer camp while they're here, including swimming, a movie night, campfire worship, and a carnival night. Campers will begin and end their days with devotions led by their adult counselors. Beginner Camp is a great way to try out camp before commiting to an entire week!
Junior Camp is serious about fun. Campers come for their first experience at weeklong camping. Each day they still start with devotions and keynote, followed by small group study time and field games. Every afternoon the pool and lake will be open. Each evening they will have a large group fun activity such as a carnival night, boating/fishing or popcorn and a movie. Junior campers end each day around the campfire singing and sharing what they learned about God and themselves that day.
Chi Rho Camp
Chi Rho Camp is a semi-rustic experience that is an adventure around every corner. Chi Rho Campers live in "Chi Rho Country" for the week in 3 season cabins with other campers and an adult counselor. They learn to tend a fire as well as cook their own meals over an open fire.
Chi Rho campers learn to experience God in new ways by living closer to nature (and away from screens) for a week. Lifelong bonds of friendship are built at Chi Rho Camp. Past campers often remark that Chi Rho Camp was the most enjoyable and formative camp they attended at the Christian Conference Center.
Unlock the leader that is inside you. CYF Camp is designed to help campers go deeper in their faith than they ever have before. Campers will have small group discussion groups that often bond quickly. They will also spend their evenings enjoying big rec activities. Past favorites have been Capture the Flag, Color Powder Wars, and Life Size Game nights. CYF campers end their week with a banquet and dance that is designed as a farewell to our seniors. CYF Camp is a special experience where our high school campers will be challenged to grow and share their faith in new ways.
ADAM Camp is short for Art, Drama and Music Camp. ADAM Campers spend their days trying out different art forms. Past lessons have included everything from guitars to handbells to paper mache and group improv. Art forms change year to year but visual art, music and drama are always included in some form or fashion.
ADAM campers are invited to think about how they can use their God-given artistic gifts to serve God and Christ's church. A "gig" is presented at the end of camp and loved ones are encouraged to attend to see what has been learned during the week.
Iowa: Grades 6-12, Colorado: Ages 17-22
Adventure Camp: Iowa (Grades 6-12) is a different adventure every day. Our activities will include: boating on Lake Red Rock, a hiking/scavenger hunt day, a challenge day that will stretch your body and mind, and more. Campers will experience God through nature and through working together. This camp has a cap of 30 youth so get your registrations in early!
Adventure Camp: Colorado (Ages 17-22) includes the basics of our local Adventure Camp but takes them to new heights… in Colorado! You’ll challenge yourself in new ways with high adventure/ropes activities, a summit hike, and more. Limited to 18 participants, so register now!
At both sessions, you will accomplish things that you never thought possible! Experienced and trained adults will lead each adventure session. Off-site activities will be communicated in advance with parents/guardians. Youth are divided into age/gender subgroups for sleeping and some activities.
Standing Rock Study Trip
In this day and time we need to be intentional about hearing the stories of people whose experiences differ from ours. Standing Rock, North Dakota, is a place where we can do that. Long before a diverse group of people gathered there to stand and work for Indigenous and Environmental Justice, the Standing Rock Tribe called this landscape their home. This summer we will journey to Standing Rock and have the opportunity to hear the stories and the history of the Standing Rock Tribe. We will have experiences that help us learn, grow and build relationships in the midst of the beautiful diversity God has created. This will also be a time and place within our own Disciples of Christ diversity to hear each other’s stories.
High School Mission Trip
Spend a week serving others and growing as a leader! High School Mission Camp is a new camp experience that takes camp on the road. Participants will meet at the CCC and then travel together to Denver, Colorado for a week of mission work, faith formation, and fun. This camp is open to all youth grades 9-12 who want to make a difference. Final work projects are still be determined. No previous camping experience is required but youth who have never attended a CCC event will need to be recommended for the trip by their pastor or youth leader.
