Family Camp

Family Camps at Cedar Campus build on a tradition of giving moms a real vacation, bringing dads closer to their families, and giving kids the fun they hope for and the spiritual growth they need.

Expert kitchen staff prepare the food; youth workers care for, instruct and watch over the children; and recreation crew help make your time in the water or woods a happy and healthy experience. Take time together to enjoy these things, well as time alone and time with your spouse.

The spiritual needs of adults are met through thematic small group Bible studies, discussion sessions and Bible exposition. For youth, the balance includes Bible instruction, skill-developing recreational programs and an emphasis on fun...all carefully planned and well-supervised whenever adult sessions are in progress.
