Something For Everyone

Our MAIN CAMP is full of fun and excitement. A number of activities will be offered such as swimming, archery, canoes, tubing, volleyball, human foosball, carpetball and service projects.  Combined with Bible study, campfires and worship, each camper will experience new friends, activities and spiritual enrichment enabling them to grow in many ways.  If a unique experience is what you have in mind, Primary Primetime, Canoe Camp or Fine Arts may be just for you.

PRIMARY PRIMETIME– This one-night program is designed for the first-time camper who may be intimidated spending the night away from home.  Programmed and staffed with this understanding, your child will enjoy a camp experience of fun and security.

CANOE CAMP-Paddling down the Suwannee and Sante Fe Rivers this canoe voyage will allow the camper to experience some of the most beautiful sights in our state.  This full week of wilderness adventure will give each camper a true challenge to remember.

ALIVE- Alive is our new approach to High School camp. Teens no longer want to just go to camp, they want to interact and make a visible difference in the community. Because we also want to give our students an opportunity to worship and grow in their relationship with Christ- we have merged this week with our worship week (formerly known as High School Worship Arts). Our teens will now have the choice of what they do during the week. Some of the options they will have the opportunity to choose from include: doing service projects in the community that take their faith to the next level by putting it into action and coming Alive; choosing one of the Worship Arts tracks (which include singing, taking pictures, choreography, playing instruments, drawing, and many others); or a combination of the options within the worship arts program.

Higher Destination (HD)- Designed for the high school student who wants to be involved, HD Camp will put you right in the middle of every activity. You will be staying with the campers, part of a counselor team helping younger campers with their activities, washing dishes, setting up for meals, building camp fires, and learning what it means to be a true servant of God. If you wish to sign up for Higher Destination you need to contact the dean for the week you wish to attend for more information.

What About the Zika Virus?

Understandably, the Zika virus has been a concern for many parents.  We at NFCSC understand that this concern only increases when they send their child to camp.   Zika is spread through bites from infected mosquitoes.  So the best way to prevent the spread of the virus is to prevent mosquito bites.  There are a couple of very easy steps that can be taken to protect your child while they are away from home.

  • Pack a few long sleeve shirts and long pants with your child.  These should be loose and light colored.  
  • Send EPA-registered insect repellents with active ingredients such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or para-menthane-diol with your child.  Encourage your child to put this on multiple times each day, as mosquitoes that spread the virus can bite both during the day and in the evening.

All of the staff and volunteers here at the camp care about the health and safety of your child and will do everything in our power to ensure nothing happens to them while they are in our care.  As a part of this, we have stocked up on insect repellant to minimize the risk of any child or adult being bit by mosquitos.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the camp office.

*Please take note that the majority of cases reported by the CDC have been from incidents related to international travel.*
