Traditional Camp Descriptions
Day Camp: Day Camp is an introduction to camp for our youngest campers. Kids entering Pre-K (4 years old) and Kindergarten will have an opportunity to come out to camp with a parent or guardian and see what all the excitement is about. This camp will be similar to an open house format with lots of freedom, but campers will still have the camp experience through storytelling, games, crafts, devotion time together, and a whole lot of fun!
First Chance Camp: First Chance camp is great for kids just beginning their church camp experience. This unique weekend getaway is designed to introduce those going into Kindergarten and 1st grades to Christian camping in a comfortable environment. A parent (or guardian) accompanies their child and they discover together that what we read in the Bible is not a bunch of random stories, but one story about God’s love for us! They will explore the wonder of God’s story through storytelling, games, crafts, devotion time together, and a whole lot of fun!
Kick Start Camp: Similar to First Chance camp, Kick Start is for campers going into 2nd and 3rd grade who are not quite ready for the solo camp experience offered at Camp 23. Campers will attend this overnight camp with a parent (or guardian) in order to gain more confidence in the camping experience and hopefully prepare them to come by themselves in the future.
Camp 23: Camp 23 offers a transition year for our campers. Following Kick Start camps where our campers attend an overnight camp with a parent and before the longer session at Camp 45, Camp 23 gives campers an opportunity to be at camp on their own for two nights. These campers will get the gears turning in their minds and hearts through worship, Bible lessons, activities, and creative spiritual application. Along with all of that, they get the fun camp experiences of the blob, the zipline, paddleboats, kayaks, the swimming pool, campfires, 9 square in the air, GaGa ball, canteen, sleeping in the cabins, singing fun songs in the dining hall, group games, and so much more!
Camp 45: Fourth and fifth graders are so often trying to figure out the puzzle of life and how they fit in it. At Camp 45, they will learn that a relationship with God is a must in putting that puzzle together. Along with all the usual camp games, lake activities, pool, archery and shooting range, campfires, etc., 4th-5th graders will experience worship and Bible teaching geared specifically for their age and learn what a relationship with God looks like and the difference it can make in their own lives. We have an amazing camp ready for this age of kiddos!
Jr. High: Junior Highers are usually ready to explore the world and set ablaze whatever they put their mind to. At the Junior High week of camp we want them to explore what a truly committed relationship with Jesus means and how to set their world on fire. They will experience worship, lessons from the Bible, small group discussion, personal time with God, and creative spiritual application. Along with all of that they get the fun camp experiences of the blob, the zipline, paddleboats, kayaks, the swimming pool, campfire, 9 square in the air, GaGa ball, canteen, group games, the shooting range, the archery range, and so much more! 6th-8th graders will have the time of their life while building a solid spiritual foundation that will forever affect their life.
High School: Many high schoolers already have a relationship with Jesus or at least know who He is. This week of camp is designed to help them explore a truly committed relationship with Jesus and ways they can impact those around them with His love. They’ll also get meaningful worship with other high school students, challenging Bible teaching, time for personal study, and all the camp activities and fun HHCC is known for!

At Kid vs. Wild, 4th-5th graders will get to face the wild by building fires, using compasses, throwing hatchets and knives, shooting bows and pellet guns, catching and preparing their own food, and so much more. They will spend time in God’s word , learning about Him, as well as applying God’s word in creative and unique ways. These campers will face the wild and win!!
