The North Carolina foothills are the perfect place to engage in outdoor recreation. With views of the Appalachian Mountains, beautiful lakes, rivers, streams, and many miles of hiking and biking trails, there is no shortage of things to do. The proximity of the region to the Charlotte metro area and the Triad makes it more accessible than the High Country and western North Carolina.
For parents who want their children to have an amazing summer, Tekoa Foothills has several types of camp experiences that suit a variety of campers. Here is what you need to know about the different kinds of camps offered at Tekoa Foothills each summer.
Our cabin group system fosters strong camper-to-camper and camper-to-staff connections and facilitates spiritual growth. Cabin groups stay together in cabins, participate in all activities together, and eat meals as a group.
Cabin groups are formed based on the age of the campers in order to provide age-appropriate activities and challenges. Tekoa Foothills places a strong emphasis on spiritual formation. Morning watch, evening vespers, and weekly worship are part of the week for all campers.
Early elementary camp is perfect for a young camper who may be sleeping away from loved ones for the first time. It is intended for six and seven-year-old kids and is a fantastic opportunity for younger children to enjoy themselves at camp, meet new people, and gain confidence. The resident camp for early elementary students will prepare your children for future camps.
Elementary-aged Tekoa Foothills campers have the opportunity to spend a week swimming in the pool, sliding down the epic slip-n-slide, ziplining across the 400-foot lake, paddling canoes and paddle boats, plunging into the lake from the big inflatable slide, and discovering the enchanting bamboo forest, all while making friends for life.
All campers will receive Christian discipleship and interaction through our family group method, which is at the heart of why Tekoa Foothills exists. Elementary students can learn a new skill set for an additional fee during their camp experience. Local experts are invited each week to instruct campers in their fields of expertise:

Tekoa Foothills offers a variety of missions programs for families and student leaders who want their kids to get out of their familiar surroundings and help their areas.
Your students will have the opportunity to enjoy our facilities, which include a lake, zipline, lake slide, pool, and more, in addition to helping God through missions initiatives. Each night, the young groups will engage in meaningful worship focused on the influence of service and sacrifice on people's lives, as well as the formation of relationships with a community in need.
