Elementary Resident Camp 

For 8-11 Year Old Campers    

Come and be a part of the Tekoa Foothills experience! Tekoa Foothills has a progressive overnight camp program, which encourages campers to engage in age-appropriate activities, allowing them to be challenged physically, mentally, and spiritually year-after-year. Overnight campers learn parallel lessons between these activities and their own personal spiritual walk. It is easy to spend time learning and reflecting in God's natural world and to feel Christ's presence throughout the week. 
Elementary campers will enjoy many on-site activities including boating, lake slide, arts and crafts, water games, swimming, hiking, low ropes course, campfires, talent shows and more. See a Sample Schedule of events.


Resident camps are organized in cabin groups. For Elementary Camp, each cabin group typically consists of 6-9 boys or 6-9 girls with a male or female counselor. This type of structure promotes strong camper-to-camper and camper-to-staff relationships. Cabin groups participate in all activities and meals together and are housed in bunk style cabins or lodges. Cabin groups are organized by camper age and cabin mate requests within the Elementary program.
