Middle School Resident Camp 

For 11-14 Year Old Campers    

Come and be a part of the Tekoa Foothills experience! Tekoa's Foothills progressive overnight program allows campers to engage in age appropriate activities, challenging them physically, mentally, and spiritually year after year. Overnight campers will 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.

Middle School camp is a fun and challenging combination of on-site activities. Campers have the opportunity to take adventure to the next level while they are here at Tekoa Foothills by challenging themselves to try their luck in archery or zip across our zipline. Campers will also be involved in on-site activities such as low ropes courses, boating, swimming, arts & crafts, hiking, campfires, talent shows and more. Campers will have the opportunity to choose their own morning adventure trek so for example a camper can choose to do Archery or Arts & Crafts every day! See a Sample Schedule of activities. 

Tekoa Foothills camps are organized in family groups. For Middle School Camp, each family 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. Family groups participate in all activities and meals together and are housed in bunk style cabins or lodges. Family groups are organized by camper age and cabin mate requests within the Middle School program.
