TVR's summer camp program runs for eight weeks, from early June until early August. We can house around 200 campers and have programs designed for elementary, middle, and high school students each week.
Our full time staff and summer staff take care of all the details. We provide trained counselors, program directors, work staff and kitchen staff. We lead worship in the morning and evening and provide a guest speaker for each week of camp. This allows the student ministry pastors to do what they do best - minister to their students!
Our three programs are:
PIONEERS:: Rising 3rd to 5th grade students
Pioneers are the youngest campers at TVR. We realize that many of these camper's first week of camp is also their first week away from home. We provide 24 hour supervised care for the elementary students with a minimum of two trained counselors. They have their own program director, games and supervised activities. Their devotional material and sessions are age-appropriate and designed with them in mind.
RANGERS:: Rising 6th to 8th grade students
Rangers are rising middle school students. Each Ranger camper will be in a cabin with 6 - 10 other students. Their trained counselor will be involved in most of their daily activities, however, in the afternoons, the Rangers are able to choose their favorite activities in "free time." The Rangers participate in the general sessions each morning and evening in the gym and are involved in the week-long team competition. Their schedule is still structured, but allows more flexibility.
MOUNTAINEERS:: Rising 9th to 12th grade students
Mountaineers will be in a cabin with a trained counselor and 6 - 10 other campers. The mountaineers have the most freedom in their schedule. They participate in the general sessions each morning and evening in the gym and are involved in the week-long team competition. The mountaineers take an offsite hiking trip in the middle of the week.
