Kootenai Christian Service Camp

OUTDOOR SKILLS CAMP

Kootenai Christian Camp has added a new camp to the summer lineup: Outdoor Skills Camp. This three-day camp is designed to provide a little more primitive camping experience coupled with learning valuable survival skills and other woodlore. In addition to this unique outdoor experience, there are times for swimming, boating, fishing, and games where campers can utilize the skills they are learning. Most importantly, there are devotions each morning, a chapel service and campfire each evening, and a church service on Sunday morning, giving the campers time to get deeper into God’s Word. Outdoor Skills Camp is for students entering grades 7-12. If this camp is for you, sign up now using our online registration form!
