Great Lakes Bible Camp is a Christ-centered camp where campers participate in exciting and challenging Bible studies geared to their particular age group. Campers going into the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades will be involved in the middle school camp and those going into the ninth grade or higher will be involved in senior high camp. Read about all the exciting activities and look through our photos below!
Great Lakes Bible Camp is for Awana Clubbers who are entering fifth grade or higher and have earned an Excellence, Timothy, Meritorious, or Citation Award OR have completed one year of program requirements. Middle school campers must be at least 9 years old and high school campers must be at least 13 years old by the first day of camp. Returning campers must complete one additional handbook/manual in the current handbook progression. All work must be completed before camp begins. However, applications can be sent before the book is completed.
Campers learn about teamwork through high-energy team competition and team building exercises. Every evening there is a Chapel service that includes a time for worship to honor God and a message that will challenge campers in their relationship with the Lord.
There are so many things to do at camp! The facilities include swimming, paintball, hiking, soccer, volleyball, tennis, basketball, softball, mini golf, and disc golf. The camp facility also has a recreation hall with ping pong, carpet ball, a zip-line, and many other fun games!
During camp there will be daily themes for dressing up at the flag pole, and daily verses that are memorized and said during quiet time. Once you have been accepted to camp you will receive this information so that you can get a head start on memorizing God’s word!
Once your student finishes his or her Awana book, they could be eligible to go to camp! Send in your Applications early to make sure we can save you a spot!Summer 2016 Application
Great Lakes Bible Camp is full of incredible opportunities for students to learn and grow. Some of our favorite activities include team building, having a water balloon and shaving cream fight after playing shaving cream whiffle ball, flying down a massive slip-n-slide, and participating in an off-campus mission with the high school students.
