Since 1954 Camp Cherith’s rich and diverse outdoor activities have helped campers aged 6 – 16 gain self confidence, develop leadership skills and grow socially and spiritually. Our Christian environment is an intentional integration of Biblical values and activity.
Customized programs are taught by positive role models in a small group, non competitive and fun atmosphere.
Camp Cherith provides children with a community of caring adults, who nurture experiential education that results in self-respect and appreciation for God and His creation. All of the outcomes – self-identity, self-worth, self-esteem, leadership, and self-respect – build personal competencies. These personal competencies are reflected in the four “C’s” of the Camp Cherith community: Christ centered, commitment, compassion and character!
Camp Cherith is more than something to do when school’s out. It is an essential component of your child’s healthy development – physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually and spiritually.
