Dogwood Acres is OPEN and looking forward to 2022 Summer Camp!

Camp Description





All of Dogwood Acres' summer camp programs are designed around small-group

activities.  Dogwood's staff gently encourages children and youth to explore their beliefs and relationship with God, as they're ready, and to continue building their sense of accomplishment, appreciation of others' abilities, and a new perspective on what they're capable of achieving.  It is our goal to provide an environment in which individuals and groups can grow in Christian faith as they experience fellowship and recreation in an outdoor ministry setting.

Discovery Camp offers young campers the opportunity to embark on many Dogwood Acres adventures, traditions, and Bible studies in the great outdoors.  Campers make new friends and participate in a broad range of discoveries, such as the teamwork required by our progressive Challenge Course and the personal challenges of archery, plus the pool, campfires, and other fun opportunities.
