Higher Ground is a week-long sleepaway Christian youth summer camp held one week each summer for youth from all denominations and faiths.
While we are a Christian summer camp in our morals, values and teachings we do not require a camper to be a Christian to attend. We deeply respect the individual beliefs and faiths of each of our campers.
Youth need a safe, positive and uplifting environment to be encouraged and challenged to grow in their relationship with God and others.
Higher Ground is that kind of a place.
