Elementary Overnight Camp

“Children are a blessing from the Lord” (Psalm 127:3)

We want to teach children how to walk by faith in their relationship with Christ while enjoying a safe, fun-filled week at camp! Through chapel sessions, meal times, activities, and more, our staff team wants to be yielded to Christ so that kids can know the love of God through our service. It’s our privilege and joy to walk alongside parents in developing campers into mature and faithful children of Christ. The week is filled with activities such as high ropes course, canoeing, horseback riding, archery, riflery, and more, as well as chapel and cabin devotions in the mornings and evenings. Keep scrolling to explore the in’s and out’s of our elementary camp!

His Hill also provides a day camp specifically for younger elementary students (ages 6-10).

Time in God’s Word

Chapels

Every day campers have the opportunity to sing, discover, and learn together of Christ in our chapel times both in the morning and the evening. Counselors and summer staff lead our campers in song praising the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness is fun filled and revenant worship songs.  At His Hill Ranch Camp our desire is to lead all campers to Christ as the source of eternal life and the means for the Christian life through verse by verse teaching by our resident staff team.

During our chapel times we specifically want to devote time to memorizing God’s word, as the Psalmist writes, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11). These verses are prayerfully chosen, not to be another “good thing” we do, but that His word would remind us of that truth in all our day by day activities. 

Devotions

Every morning and evening each cabin will open God’s word together and learn of Christ through counselor led devotions. The purpose of these times is to know Christ in His word in a deeper way while giving an opportunity to the campers to share their joys and struggles in their personal lives. Each counselor is encouraged to also share truth through God’s word that has been specifically transformative in their personal lives.
