Highland Lakes Camp and Conference Center

Preteen Camp

Preteen Camp is an exciting four day program designed for students who have completed 3rd - 6th grade. Campers will experience interactive Bible studies, high-energy worship celebrations, small group discussions, and plenty of wild and fun outdoor activities — all to ensure an unforgettable camp experience leading preteens toward knowing Christ and growing in relationship with Him.

Our focus is for campers to hear God’s Word, know God’s Word, and do God’s Word by learning to apply it to their lives. We create spaces for this to happen through:

  • Dynamic Worship Services where students and adults will gather to engage in music, scripture reading, creative drama, and challenging messages from the Bible.
  • Focused Bible Study and Church Family Group Time where campers will have the chance to dig deeper into the truths they are learning and discuss them with their peers and leaders.
  • Exciting Fun and Fellowship as campers engage in a wide variety of recreational activities, facing challenges together and experiencing the joy and adventure of life with Christ!

Important Info for Group Leaders

  • Check-In on Day 1 will begin at 3:00 PM. Have your group's medications and any paperwork on hand to make the process as smooth as possible.
  • Departure time on Day 4 is at approximately 11:00 AM.
