OUR CAMPS
Explorers
Ages 8-10

EXPLORERS are at the age when they see the world through their imagination and can find fun in just about everything. At Camp, the world becomes a playground full of new things to explore. They get to climb up the High Ropes course, take a Corcl out on the take and let their imagination run free in the Creator’s Studio! 

While they’re busy discovering the world around them, they have caring Cabin Leaders looking out for them to make sure they are getting all they need. Campers learn how to build lasting friendships in a safe environment that encourages creativity and celebrates their uniqueness. And, most importantly, they will explore the greatest truth: that they are loved and treasured by God!

Stokers
Ages 14-15

Whether you know it or not, STOKERS is the week of fun and freedom you’ve been waiting for! It’s where exciting adventure meets authentic relationships. Your week will be filled with skills that YOU get to choose along with some Camp classics like bonfires and swimming in the lake.

Stokers also get to take part in our evening wide games and Lighthouse: complete with a band and a captivating speaker. On top of all of that, Stokers have their own lounge to hang out in and their own night-time events like Stoker Coffee Haus!

Beyond all the fun, Stokers is focused around building deep, meaningful friendships with great people. Camp is a chance for Stokers to slow down and live in the moment, away from all the pressures of their world. In this space, you’ll get to engage in face-to-face conversations with friends and Cabin Leaders, giving you the chance to be heard and to hear how much God loves you.

Mid-Summer Bash (Aug 7-9)

MID-SUMMER BASH (AGES 11-17) is a week of Camp packed into THREE FULL DAYS! The most fun-filled, action-packed days of your summer could be spent at Camp Arnes for our Mid-Summer Bash! Join us for three days of all your Camp favourites like Ropes, Pedal Carts, and Capture the Flag; adding some extra fun with night games and other new surprises! Everything will be injected with a little more hype, including our Lighthouses, which will feature some of the most hype and exciting worship and meaningful speaking throughout our entire summer. Spots are limited so get your registrations in!

Challengers
Ages 11-13

CHALLENGERS is all about having fun and learning some amazing things while doing it. Each day is filled with a new adventure, opportunities to make meaningful friendships and times to create lasting memories. Challengers get to select two skills to engage with daily throughout the week, being encouraged to learn from our various skill coordinators as they teach campers how to stay safe, have fun and grow in their respective skills.

 

Of course, the fun doesn’t stop there! Almost every evening includes a Camp-wide game, a live band and an engaging speaker. Throw in a few Camp classics like bonfires, roasting marshmallows and some secret sneak outs and it’s the perfect way to spend your summer. While fun and adventure are our aim, we also party with a purpose. Challengers are “challenged” by their Cabin Leaders to build confidence, character and a strong relationship with Jesus. Their uniqueness will be explored while they learn how to grow more like Jesus in everything they do. Above all else, Challengers get to hear about the love that God personally has for each and every one of us.

Crew
Ages 15-17

If you are looking to do something this summer that makes a lasting impact, then CREW is the right place for you. It’s a two-week work program that will provide you with practical training and experience for working both in and out of Camp! CREW is broken down into three parts:

 

WORK: Campers spend a chunk of each day doing work projects, volunteering in the Kitchen, caretaking and helping in other areas of Camp. Along with the experience, they are taught skills like resume building and interviewing to help them as they pursue work outside of Camp. CREW campers learn how to work hard until the job is done without giving up, using their gifts and talents to help others in a positive way.

Bonus… you can count your work hours at Camp towards a volunteer credit at school!

 

PLAY: Throughout the work day, Crew Campers get to play team-building games and have Tuck breaks, but the real fun begins when work is done! They get to join the rest of Camp in swimming, playing wide games, enjoying activities and connecting in Lighthouse. At the end of each week, Crew gets a bonfire to unwind, enjoy some smores’ and reflect on the week that went by.

 

RELATIONSHIP: Crew is where you find community like nowhere else. Cabin Leaders are always there for a laugh and to lend a listening ear. As campers learn to work as a team and get along with a diverse group of people, deep bonds are formed. They are taught to encourage and build each other up while appreciating one another’s differences. Greatest of all, they are taught daily about having a relationship with God, where they are reminded how much He loves them and cares for them.

 

To complete a registration for the C.R.E.W Program, you will need to send a mandatory letter of intent to summerministries@camparnes.com. This letter should tell us a bit about yourself and why you’d like to join the C.R.E.W Program this year. We will contact you with confirmation upon reviewing the letter. Full payment for C.R.E.W should not be paid until the acceptance email has been sent.

 

 

** Campers MUST return home on weekends between weeks **

Day Camp
Ages 8-10

If you are wanting the experience of Camp without the commitment of sleeping over, then DAY CAMP is the best fit for you! It’s the best of both worlds with Camp adventure all day and a chance to sleep in your own bed at night. Day Campers follow the same schedule as our Explorers with activities galore. They’ll get to try Archery, the Giant Swing, Pedal Carts and so much more.

We love giving our Day Campers a chance to get out of the house, make new friends and get to know God through adventure in the great outdoors. They get dropped off at Camp* right after breakfast and picked up at dinner, just in time to fill your evening with stories from an exciting day at Camp. Day Camp is also a great option if you live locally or have a cabin close by. Give your camper an amazing Camp experience with Day Camp!
