Summer Youth Camp Sessions

Connecting kids with themselves, their faith community, and their world!

Our summer camps at Camp Adams are designed to provide a traditional "sleep-away" summer camp experience for youth wrapped within the fundamental ideals of the United Church of Christ faith tradition-- extravagant welcome for all and the building of community life that supports a more just and sustainable world. Experienced and trained volunteers provide daily programming and cabin counseling. Paid summer camp staff provide and supervise daily swims in our beautiful swimming hole, outdoor group activities, arts and crafts, nature experiences and an evening gathering around the campfire. Food service is designed around whole, regional (whenever possible) foods and the promotion of healthy eating choices. Perhaps most importantly, summer camp at Camp Adams is about experiencing the beauty and power of our beloved mature forest. All together the mission of our youth camps is to provide a place where kids are safe to explore who they are, how they matter, and that they belong.

  • Experienced and trained counselors and directors,
  • Camp staff including nurses and life guards,
