Camp of the Rising Son aims to develop the campers’ interest in outdoor activities as well as teach them new skills. A strong emphasis is placed on encouraging and stimulating creativity. In addition, CRS offers campers the opportunity to develop personal leadership skills, learn more about themselves, and learn how to live with others. It is imperative that we work towards these goals in a way that provides for the safety of our campers, is consistent with a Christian worldview, and is fun. We accomplish these goals doing a couple different things.
Personal contact: Emphasize small groups: 12 campers per cabin; 10 campers for every activity instructor.
Spiritual admonition: Provide opportunity for individual spiritual counsel; give example of personal devotions; emphasize the gospel’s bearing on every aspect of life; staff show Christ’s preeminence by our walk and talk.
Social development: Help campers learn to live with, understand, and empathize with others; help foster friendships among the campers; develop personal leadership skills as well as the willingness to be a contributing member of the group or team; introduce each camper to the world as a community of human beings, not all of whom are similar to one another, but all of whom must be lived with, treated with respect, understood, sympathized with, and helped.
These factors and many other thins are what we use to create an amazing experience for all of our campers. Check out our website for more information.
