In addition to spiritual growth, camp also is about new experiences, learning new skills and making new friends.  That was certainly the case this summer at Streamside as 134 campers came for the very first time.  70% of our campers indicated that they learned a new skill like swimming, praise dancing or setting up a tent. Most impressive and very satisfying was that an amazing 79% of campers made a new friend!

“Good friends who exert positive peer pressure can make all the difference in a kid’s life. Friendships with caring adults and other campers, forged through shared experience and the compressed time at camp, can last a lifetime and provide a connection that helps young people navigate the challenges of life.”
