Camp here is different - and we know you and your child will love it. Here, kids learn that their differences do not define them. They also learn that Christ is more than a Sunday School lesson; He is active and real and able.
As boys and girls grow, the challenges they face can be very difficult. Add the extra pressures faced by kids with learning differences, and life can soon feel overwhelming.
Charis Hills offers kids with special learning needs an opportunity to come to a place of acceptance. We help them see, sometimes for the first time, that God created them exactly the way they are, and that He has a plan and purpose for their life. Many campers find support and encouragement here they have never before experienced. They learn that success is something they too can achieve with hard work.
The Charis Hills community is as inclusive as it is transformative. Here they meet others—both peers and counselors—who share similar experiences and are finding success. And while our program is designed for children with learning differences, their siblings and friends are also welcome. All campers have the opportunity to learn and participate in new activities in an environment that is physically and socially safe.
At Charis Hills, we embrace our mission to teach children about Christ. We believe that if a child can understand who Christ is, that understanding can change his or her life. We also believe that many daily problems can be overcome through an understanding of the Bible, and that understanding can guide a successful life.
We will present God as loving and just, and Christ as the Son of God.
We will model Christian values and character.
We will celebrate and share our faith with others but in a relaxed, no-pressure manner.
We will emphasize a Christian message that is Biblical, positive and affirming, yet non-denominational.
Parents who do not want their children exposed to Biblical teachings or Christ should not send their children to Charis Hills. Children who are not from Christian homes may still attend, and they will not be treated differently than other children. We are committed to treating all children in a fair and balanced manner.
