Volunteer leaders are always needed and play a huge role in summer camp.  The process for applying to volunteer as a junior counselor, adult counselor or leader goes through the ministry team.  The contact for Elementary Camps is Misty yates and can be reached at 502.253.8811 or at myates@secc.org

Zipline (extra fee applies)  Limited to first 150 campers to sign up: Campers get the chance to head down the MegaZipline.  They’ll climb the tower and then get hooked in for a 1,000 foot flight. That’s the length of three football fields!

Archery Limited to first 75 campers to sign up (no extra fee): Campers can channel their inner Robin Hood and learn how to shoot a bow and arrow at our archery targets.  (You mentioned an archery course  but I didn’t know how to describe that)

Painting  – Limited to first 90 campers to sign up (no extra fee): Campers will learn some different painting techniques and get to paint their own painting step by step.

Owl Pellets – No limit/cap (no extra fee):  Animal loving campers will love to learn about what owls eat and then examine the pellets to find fossils.

Bottle Rockets – Limited to first 60 Campers to sign up (no extra fee): Who knew a 2 liter bottle could shoot a 100 feet in the air?  Campers will work in teams to build their own launcher and then we’ll see how far the rockets fly!

Hip Hop Dance – Cap: 90 (no extra fee): Campers will learn the basics of hip hop dance and then learn a routine.  Time to Hip Hop Dance for Jesus!

Hiking – No Limit/Cap (no extra fee):  If you have an active camper, they are sure to love hiking to the top of the Knob to see out over Indiana and over to the Louisville skyline.  Campers registered for hiking should bring closed toe shoes (no flip flops or sandals).

Middle School Camp Details

During the registration process campers will have the chance to select extra activities as part of their camp experience but this is optional. The extra activities include the mega zip line, paintball and the swing of faith with descriptions below.

Mega Zip Line ($10): Campers will climb the 35 foot tower and then get hooked in for a 1,000 foot flight. That’s the length of three football fields! The Mega Zip is always a big hit with campers!

Paintball ($25): Junior High campers have the opportunity to play real-life scenarios on the paintball field where they will work together, compete together and enjoy (most of the time) stepping onto the field of battle to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Swing of Faith ($7): When campers get suited up in their full-body harness and step over to the mounting platform, the excitement definitely soars but not nearly as much as they soar after being pulled to the top of the 45′ pole where they get to pull their own rip cored and free fall before swinging courageously toward the treetops!  If roller coasters and thrill rides are your thing then the swing of faith is a must this summer!

Volunteer leaders are always needed and play a huge role in summer camp.  The process for applying to volunteer as a junior counselor, adult counselor or leader goes through the ministry team.  The contact for Middle School Ministry Camps is Curtis Zehner and can be reached at 502.253.8507 or at czehner@secc.org
