Summer Camp

Summer Camp at HoneyRock

The HoneyRock commitment is to develop whole and effective people, equipping and empowering them for service in Christ’s Kingdom. At HoneyRock, participants experience growth at an accelerated pace through our experiential learning model and a high level of personal engagement. Participants learn to focus on others and not just themselves through service and discipleship. HoneyRock is a special place where relationships with God and each other grow deeper because of an environment free of distractions, a community that is authentic and supportive, and through programs that are focused on the development of the whole person.

Why Honeyrock?


Another Summer of Video Games and the Mall?

More than ever kids need what HoneyRock has to offer. Today’s culture focuses on being better than others, having the best stuff, and looking good. As a result children are missing the character development they so desperately need. HoneyRock seeks to develop the whole person in a way that is permanent and life changing. At HoneyRock we are focused on building into children the character traits needed to be leaders, to serve others, and face the struggles and disappointments in life.

What Will My Child Do at HoneyRock?

We design our programs intentionally to build on each other and match the stage of development and experience level of your child. Early in the camp experience the focus is on exploration--of what it means to know God through nature, to develop new friendships, and to try new things. As a child progresses, attention is given to learning new skills, both physical (kayaking, archery, riflery, etc.) and spiritual skills such as inductive Bible study and applying God's word to life situations. Finally, our goal is to develop individuals who, having recognized the gifts they've been given and developed, are ready to give back to others and to God in the form of servant leadership.

Elementary and Junior High School Summer Camp Experiences

We're bringing it back: Day Camp! What better way to introduce your littles to camp than to send them for action-packed days at HoneyRock? They'll get a full sample of the HoneyRock experience: participating in fun activities, learning about Christ through interactive devotionals, spending time in authentic community, and experiencing creation through short hikes on our local trails. 

July 15 - 19, 2019

Is this your child's first time away from home? Are they interested in the idea camp, but not sure about making the two-week commitment of a longer program? Intro could be a perfect fit!

June 24 - 29, 2019

Our 12-Day Residential Camp program has been a part of HoneyRock since we opened our doors in 1951. The camp schedule is written so that every hour is specifically geared toward creating opportunities for campers to see the Lord through their cabins, their play, their quiet times and their activities.

July 1 - July 12 / July 15 - July 26 / July 29 - August 9

High School Summer Camp Experiences

Making the switch to high school is a big jump! That's why we've created Advance Camp, a program designed to help students wrestle with questions such as “Who am I? What is true? What is my purpose?”  As they enter high school, we want students thinking about who they're becoming and taking ownership of their faith, ready to walk the halls of high school as a confident and kind Christ-follower.

2019: June 24 - July 12 / July 22 - August 9

Pursue righteousness. Pursue faith. Pursue love. Pursue peace. Pursue life with a purpose.

More than anything, in 2:22 we want you to experience Jesus Christ in a way that’s real, and powerful, and changes everything. Through quiet times and cabin discussions, large group worship and campfire devotions, living life together and serving others, we want to challenge you with what it means to follow Jesus.

July 1 - July 26, 2019

By discovering your own unique God-given gifts as well as your personal strengths, this program will take you to the next level of following Jesus, growing in leadership and serving with a passion for making a difference in the world.

June 24 - July 29, 2019

Explore one of the wildest places in the lower 48 states. This epic expedition will challenge you to learn advanced canoe skills as well as wilderness ethics, backcountry navigation, backcountry cooking, and have opportunities for deep reflection in solitude.

Dates coming soon!

Since 1951 Service Teamers have spent their summers at HoneyRock learning what it looks like to truly serve others. "Steamers" engage in service and leadership opportunities, small and large group worship and study, a close-knit peer community, and deep mentoring relationships with camp counselors. It's an unforgettable summer!

2019: June 24 - August 10
