Adventure Camps 2023
At Westview, we take the health and safety of our campers and staff seriously. Every camper and every counselor will undergo a health check-in that includes current COVID-19 precautions as outlined by the CDC. In addition, Westview will maintain stringent cleaning, social distancing, and health procedures as outlined by the CDC, ACA (American Camping Association, and CCCA (Christian Camping Association).
Adventure Camps allow campers the opportunity to contribute to group leadership and decisions, share in cooking & cleaning, live in tents, share and grow in faith, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
The goals of Adventure Camp are to provide the camper with opportunities to experience new activities or to build on previous accomplishments; to appreciate our natural resources and to learn proper outdoor living skills; to explore, through discussion and study, a Christian lifestyle; to celebrate our individual uniqueness while working together as a group; and to develop self-esteem and new friendships while learning new tasks.
