Explorers (Grades 5-6)
Are you in a pickle? When was the last time you had to choose between being selfish, and sharing with others? We all face it everyday, so why not have fun while learning how to put God first by coming to Explorers camp this year. You will get the opportunity to have fun, in a multitude of activities created for kids your age: swimming, zipline, climbing wall, fun yaks, mini-golf, crafts and more! Horseback riding is also available for an additional fee.
What to Expect
As a traditional cabin camp for 5th and 6th graders, Explorers offers young campers a safe environment to grow and develop their relationships with God. A full week of outdoor activities lets kids experience God’s creation, while learning Biblical truths. Golden Bell counselors provide guidance and encouragement throughout the week. Remember to stay hydrated! Your body needs more water at this elevation so bring a water bottle. Combining fun with learning, Explorers is a fast-paced camp that will lead kids to deepen their relationships with God.
Explorers will stay in Golden Bell’s cozy cabins at Ponderosa or High Chaparral. These quaint cabins are furnished with bunk beds and limited shelving for personal items. Pack warm pajamas and sleeping bag because most cabins do not have strong heating units. Bath-houses are easily accessible to all cabins and include showers. Meals are served in the lodge by kitchen staff.
Morning devotions will be led by counselors or coordinators and include upbeat songs with lots of motions. After kids get moving, camp leaders will deliver the day’s message. Age-appropriate themes are designed to deepen kids’ relationships with God. In addition to morning chapel times, kids will experience an evening speaker who will deliver a short message after dinner. Counselors are always available to talk to kids one-on-one and answer spiritual questions. They will also lead nightly devotions, before kids head to bed.
Group and team activities are planned to reinforce the spiritual themes introduced in chapel. Outdoor games channel kids’ energy, as well as exciting activities like archery and the swimming pool, optional horseback riding, and much more! In addition, kids will get to try camp adventure elements, including zipline, climbing tower, and fun yaks.
Excursions to the “Snack Shack” allow kids to purchase a variety of cool drinks, candy, ice cream, crackers, and chips. On Friday, all campers will have an opportunity to shop in the camp gift shop. (Recommended spending amount for Snack Shack and Gift Shop is $20.)
