The overnight summer camps at Spruce Lake put kids in the midst of God’s creation for a week of fun, Bible teaching, and adventure set in the beautiful Pocono Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Summer Camp 2021 – Full Armor of God

Who am I? Why am I here?
What is the truth?
The world is full of answers to these questions that can so easily pull a believer away from our God. That’s why it is so important for every follower of JESUS to know how to put on “the armor of God!” The Apostle Paul says this is “so that you may be able to stand firm in these difficult days.”

Make it YOUR plan to not only have an awesome week @ Wilderness Camp, but also to grow in your understanding of God’s plan for your life!

    "Wilderness Summer Camps for the children and teens are top notch! Truly an old fashioned sleep away camp experience and technology/phone break for them. My 3 look forward to it every year, they've made friends and great memories!"

    - Debbie Lake (Google review)

    "The activities were endless no one was ever board! This is just some of stuff we did: mini golf, zip lining, rock wall climbing, kayaking, shuffleboard, swimming, hiking down beautiful trails. Sooooo much fun!! We go on vacation a couple of times a year and tend to cruise mostly i was so happy when my kids told me that they were having the time of their lives. "

    - Carolyn Radle (Google review)

    "This place is amazing - great staff constantly upgrading facilities, clean, great camp food, beautiful conference center and surroundings. I am a former camp director who lives in the area and can assure you that this place is top notch. I wouldn't have sent my kids here the last 4 years in a row if it wasn't."
