Battalion ENDEAVOR

Program Description

For boys ages 12-16.

For teen guys who endeavor for more.
Experience a packed week of fun and out of camp adventures with a focus on living a Christian life. Each day your son will go on a new out of camp trip with his cabin mates. They will be outfitted for hiking a high peak (3,000 - 4,000ft), canoe for a day, rock climb another day, and fish another. Every night will end with all camp game time, swim time, and our staff bringing you a fun, energetic campfire that draws your focus to Christ. You will go on an overnight campout, pitch a tent, and cook your own food. You'll hear scripture, testimonies, and stories that spur you to accept Christ, love Christ, and seek Him every day. Each cabin has 1-2 college age counselors responsible for supervision, and 1 junior counselor per 8 campers.

This program is a feeder trip for our out-of-camp trips and a great program to do for a change of pace if you have been coming for a few years of battalion.

21yr old counselors do the driving for the off-site trips and all trips have staff certified in Life guarding, CPR, and Wilderness first aid.
