Completed 6th-8th Grade
Do you like to ride horses? Do you want to develop paddling skills? Wrangler provides the opportunity for campers to learn about barn/horse care and develop horseback riding skills through the week. Campers will also be attending regular program activities through the week. The horseback riding is held at Dogwood Creek Farm in Newport, NC with all activities lead and supervised by their trained staff.
Wrangler strives to nurture spiritual growth in our campers through interaction with the wonders of God’s creation and to foster deep relationships with Christ in our churches, communities, and the world. Our camp programs create purposeful opportunities to plant seeds and have campers grow spiritually throughout the day. At morning watch campers receive a seed for thought, providing them with a focus for the day. Bible study grants living water for campers to seek teachings directly from the bible based upon what was planted earlier that morning. At vespers one of our staff or a local pastor speaks directly on the subject, giving a strong root system for campers to reach further out in their faith. Devotions are opportunities for campers to ask questions and debrief on the day so they may begin to grow further in their faith in Christ.
Adventure campers will enjoy many other activities such as sailing, low ropes challenge course, giant swing, archery, arts and crafts, tree climbing, swimming in our pool, skit night, and much more! (See our mock schedule of events.) Adventure camps are organized in family groups. Each family group typically consists of 5 boys and 5 girls with a male and female counselor. Family groups participate in all activities together and are housed separately by gender in platform tents and pitched tents off site. Depending on registration numbers, some family groups are single-gendered. Family groups are organized by camper age and cabin mate requests.
