Join us at Sugar Creek for our traditional family camp program! At Sugar Creek, we welcome all ages and family make-ups; though, most activities are geared toward elementary aged youth and older. Our program is designed as intentional, fun, faith-forming, FAMILY TIME! Our dynamic staff will lead all the fun camp activities as well as host your family.

A dynamic guest speaker will lead the adult morning faith formation time and assist with the evening worship. Our flexible schedule allows you to jump in and out of activities as your family so chooses.
