2000 Strong Adventure Camp


The 2000 Strong Adventure Camp is an awesome five day experience for campers and staff!  The camp provides an atmosphere that challenges and promotes spiritual growth through a deeper understanding of Christ's teachings.  The main focus of our camp is to bring our campers closer to Christ by helping them understand and apply God's Word to their lives.  Our primary focus is the Book of Mormon, but scripture from the Holy Bible is incorporated as well.  Campers are able to participate in age appropriate classes to help them grow their testimony of Christ.  Morning prayer, nightly devotionals, campfires and our Dedication Service also help create a spiritual environment.  In addition to classes, we have a ton of fun!  The campers (and staff) are able to participate in awesome activities such as rock climbing,canoeing, fishing, swimming, archery, a ropes course and arts and crafts.  We have also brought in a DJ each year to play music while the kids dance and play games.  Back by popular demand are the zip line, snow cone truck and photo booth!!  The relationships the campers build at camp are irreplaceable.  This camp is a second family to them that the look forward to seeing each year.  Come and join us!!
 Youth

Junior/Junior High (Ages 8-13) - Inspirational View of the Book of Mormon

The Junior/Jr. High class at our camp is focused on getting the kids familiar with the main content of the Book of Mormon, and helping them understand the important scriptural truths contained in it.  The class is a very fun and interactive environment for them.  Lots of visual aids are included and the kids get to answer questions for fun prizes throughout the class.  By the end of camp the kids have a basic knowledge of the Book of Mormon, know the major stories of the people found in the Book of Mormon and know how the Lord blessed them.


Senior High (Ages 14-18) - Life Application of Scripture

The Senior High class is focused on encouraging the youth to begin to build or strengthen a relationship with Jesus Christ.  They will understand how to apply Christ's teachings in their everyday lives and learn how to incorporate Christian Standards. They will leave the camp with a deeper relationship with Christ and knowledge that will help them witness to their relatives and friends.  They will develop a lifelong relationship with each other and be encouraged to continue to remain in contact and study together. 



 Young Adults - Leadership Development


The Young Adult program is now in its third year.  This was started in response to many of our campers graduating from high school, but still having a desire to participate in camp and continue in their Spiritual growth.  The goal of this program is to prepare our young adults for living and working in the world while maintaining a Spiritual foundation that keeps them connected to their Faith.  We want to enable them to develop the Great Faith that daily living requires.  We currently meet this goal with sessions in Finance, Patriarchal Blessings and Missionary Work.  We plan to continue to develop and grow this program based on the needs of our young adults.

In addition to participating in the camp, the young adults may also choose to participate in our Counselor In Training (CIT) program.  This program pairs young adults with experienced counselors to help them transition from camper to counselor.


 
2000 Strong Babies - Family Development

The Family development program is designed to help new families become stronger and more unified.  The goal of this program is to help young families learn to navigate financial and spiritual challenges unique to their situations. The classes are designed to teach you how to develop a stronger faith in the family unit and help you build a spiritual foundation for your family.  Space is limited for this camp it is important to register early to reserve your spot.
