Life at Cedar Crest Camp is full of fun activities for kids of all ages – from outdoor experiences to sports and games to song and worship, we have something for everyone. Join us for classic camp activities: GaGa Ball, creek stomping, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, archery, low ropes, and brand new total group games this summer (including Capture the Flag!).


Getting campers outside to get out of their comfort zones, make new friends, develop social skills, and above all, grow in their faith is exactly what we do well. However, we do not let program drive our mission.  We believe that fun activities are awesome and are a vital part of our camp experience.  However, we know that fun activities do not necessarily equate to a good camp experience.  So instead, what drives our program is relationships.  We seek to hire college students with a deep desire to help young people grow in their faith, offer an empathetic and listening ear, and provide a safe and stable environment in the midst of the camp setting.  We believe that the camper-counselor relationship is an opportunity to develop an authentic reflection of Christian community and discipleship.  As such, we love questions. We love the struggles and growth that happens when people share and open up.  We love watching others step out on faith as they move closer to God.  We also love how our awesome activities help to foster opportunities at authentic relationships.  Aside from that, we love God’s creation.  We celebrate it, play in it, and learn about it.  It will inform our settings for worship, program, and even connectional opportunities for scripture and curriculum.


At Cedar Crest, we desire for every camper to above all, have a safe and fun camp experience.  Campers of all ages, races, and ethnicities are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Though we are a United Methodist camp, campers from all denominations and backgrounds are welcome.
