If I had friends like the ones at camp, I would never have a bad day.

There is no such thing as aging out of camp! For one week we will take our teens on an adventure they will never forget. Campers arrive at 8 am on Monday ready for a week of fun. Starting on Tuesday they will take a 3 night trip to the mountains of Western     North Carolina. Campers will travel to the mountains and enjoy a thrilling tree-based zip line adventure. Zipping side-by-side with friends, going from tree to tree while experience breathtaking views – amazing. Campers will also enjoy a day of white water rafting down the French Broad River. On our journey down the river we will enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery and the wildlife that live by the river.

Of course, no trip is complete without evening hikes through this wonderful area, sleeping in tents, cooking meals by the campfires, telling stories, and evening vespers complete the day of adventure and allow our campers to rest for the next energetic day ahead.

Our new teen camp promises excitement, fun, and fellowship. Campers will make friends and participate in activities especially designed for teenagers. Join us …. We promise the time of your life!

Our teen adventure camp will be led by professional guides at both off site activities.

 

The High School Crew

Rising 10th Graders Only

REGISTER HERE

“The Crew” is a new camp for rising 10th graders. The goal is to learn about Camp from a different perspective by serving meals, cleaning dishes, and learning about the diverse jobs around Camp. Of course it is not all work and no play! Crewmembers will also participate in day camp and overnight camp activities when applicable and assist the Program Director on activities for campers. The program is designed to complement the camper experience and prepare members to join the camp as counselors-in-training the following year. Crew members will also get to enjoy their own activities and off-site trips as part of this program. In addition all crew members will receive CPR training and have the opportunity to become lifeguard certified. Successful participants will come away from this program with valuable leadership skills that will serve them well at home, in school, and in their own community.

A completed application form and personal statement are required. This application is available on our website at www.newhopeccc.org. Members are required to sign up for one mandatory week. There will be 2 choices for mandatory training: Week 1 or Week 5. Each of these weeks has 12 spaces. After completion of a mandatory week the Program Director will meet with each crew member to determine eligibility to serve as a volunteer during the summer camp season. Completion of the mandatory training week does not guarantee placement as a volunteer during the summer camp season. If selected there is no fee for the program.

 

Mandatory Training Week: Week 1 June 15-19

$330 for the week (this includes mandatory CPR training. This certification is valid for 2 years).

There is the option to select lifeguard certification. This is an additional $125 fee for the week.

A successful summer camp season is a team effort. This week will focus on the day to day operations at camp.
