Residential Camp at HoneyRock
HoneyRock believes in the intentional relationships built between counselors and campers as a way to pour into young people through purposefully designed experiences of learning, adventuring and living for Christ.
In Residential "Res" Camp, your camper will journey through each day with their cabinmates and counselors, enjoying bible studies, service opportunities, wilderness trips, and fun evening activities and campfires, together. In everything we do, from our camper worship to our reflection times to our activity times, we hope to develop campers to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Below you will find an outline of a typical daily schedule to better understand what to expect in our Residential Camp Programming.

Solid Rock is an optional “challenge” for campers – it includes running, swimming, praying, and engaging God’s word every day.
All campers take a few minutes of “alone” time to read Scripture, pray, and reflect.
Cabin leaders prepare fun, interactive lessons to bring God’s Word to life, challenging and encouraging camper’s walk with Christ.
We eat family style! You’ll come into the Dining Hall as a cabin and sit around a table with your cabin.
With 14 activity areas, it’s tough to be bored! From drama to waterskiing and archery to crafts, we offer a wide variety of activities to serve campers with a variety of interests.
Res Campers have the option to begin working towards their Basic, Intermediate, and Masters in any of our 14 activity areas. This progression involves technical skills in the activity, service to the area, and instruction of other fellow campers.
While activity areas are fun, they're also used to teach perseverance (it can take a camper 3-5 years to earn a Masters!), build confidence, learn how to fail and try again, and so many other life skills. Our activity areas are one of our most powerful tools for developing character and leadership in campers.
Every cabin will take part in a wilderness trip, with opportunities to play in and explore the almost 1000 acres of natural beauty owned by HoneyRock, as well as participate in a moonlight campout at one of our local sites! While this is subject to change, boys are typically in the woods the Thursday – Saturday of each camp session, while the girls head into the woods on the Monday – Wednesday of the second week of camp.
This is structured “free time” – visit the Beehive, play a game, sign up for an activity as a cabin...the opportunities are endless!
