summer camp AT tvr

Due to summer camp cancellations and other factors related to our current situation with COVID-19, we are sad to say we will not be able to have summer camp throughout the month of June, 2020. Because of the ever-changing nature of information related to the virus, we are continuing to assess and make decisions, and we remain hopeful about the possibility of July camp. We will vigorously pursue every option in hopes of being able to effectively and safely fulfill our desire and mission of making Christ known, as well as growing and serving His people. We invite you to pray with us, as well as our local and national leaders, for wisdom, discernment and God's peace as we move forward in this process. We'll continue to provide updates as we move forward.


God has been changing lives during weeks of summer camp at TVR for 50 years! Really, there is nothing quite like a week of summer camp; it is a vital and sustaining part of the ministry.

 

We hope that the summer camp experience is unforgettable fun; but more than that, we desire to make a great impact on campers’ lives “by His power and for His glory!” Believing that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care, we train our summer staff to invest in the life of each individual camper in order that they may be confronted with the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

A summer camp week runs from Monday to Saturday morning throughout June and July. See below for 2019 summer camp dates. We offer three distinct programs for different ages:

 

Our Pioneer program is for students entering 3-5th grades. This age group has trained counselors that provide supervision at all times.

 

Our Ranger program is for middle school students, rising 6th-8th graders.

 

Our Mountaineer program is for high school students, rising 9th-12th graders.

 

We offer each of these programs simultaneously each week. The Pioneer program is distinct and has its own age-appropriate games, sessions, and activities, with more structure than the older age groups. Rangers and Mountaineers have less structure and more free time. They are in sessions together, but have distinct group games and cabin times.
