Campers are called candidates for a reason. Come to graduation and find out why! All parents and leaders are invited to our formal candidate graduation ceremony on the last day of camp. We recognize outstanding candidate graduates for their hard work and success. Your youth will be among them, so don’t miss out!

  • Please do not disturb your child until graduation is completed.
