Kirkwood Summer Camp 2017
At Kirkwood, Summer Camp is all about the kids. We offer a week-long, faithful and community building experience that sends our campers home full, happy, sleepy, and with new friends and deeper faith.
Our carefully picked and trained Christian role models will be the counselors your kids remember for years. No electronics here either–campers get to know each other the old fashioned way, by listening and playing together, learning more about God, and exploring our beautiful 300-acres of creeks and woods. Above all, we prioritize fun and creativity, and every week is a unique experience that can have a life-changing effect. That’s something to be excited about.
Every camp is offered at three prices (for more information about tiered pricing, scroll down). It is a part of Kirkwood’s mission to ensure everyone is able to come to camp, regardless of cost. We have financial scolarships available; for more information, please contact us via the contact form on the contact page.
All camps run Sunday at 3pm to Saturday at 9:30am.
For our 2017 Summer Season, we have three main camp offerings (all of them are cool):
Traditional Camp Rising Grades 3-12
Join us for the week, and experience our vibrant camp community at it’s fullest. Fly down the zip-line. Make lasting friendships. Hike up to the ridge, with the opportunity to sleep out under the stars. Practice living the gospel, and have a blast while doing it!

Night Owl Rising Grades 6-12
Have an incredible experience at camp–after dark! Night Owl campers will stay up into the early hours of the morning, only rising for a hearty breakfast at normal “lunch time.” Explore, create, sing, play, hang out, and worship in the middle of the night, while sleeping in our cool platform tents.

What is tiered pricing?
Realizing that families have different abilities to pay for camp, our voluntary tiered fee system allows parents to pay what they can afford, and to further help support the cost of camp if they are able. Just choose the tier that is the most suitable for your family’s situation. No matter what tier you choose, every camper will receive the same quality of experience. As you consider your situation, please also take into account the incredible experience Kirkwood provides campers, and the true cost of funding that experience.
Tier I – The lowest amount, which represents a rate subsidized by the presbyteries we serve, local churches, and annual contributions from individuals who value the every day impact of our mission on children, youth, adults, and families.
Tier II – A middle amount which represents only a partially subsidized rate. In choosing to pay a little more, you’re helping to support the continuing ministry at Kirkwood Camp.
Tier III – The highest amount, which more closely reflects the actual expense related to providing a child with an incredible summer camp experience. By choosing this amount, you help us stretch our mission funding farther, and you enable us to bring more campers to camp.
Tiered pricing allows us to:
● Preserve our ability to create a fun, safe, and loving community, and sustain quality programming for years to come
● Invite all people to share in the Kirkwood experience, regardless of financial capability
● Reflect that providing children and adults the opportunity to grow as a person, a leader, and a child of God is an important mission, and more than just the sum of programs and facilities
● Provide those who value the impact of our ministry an opportunity for partnership.
Remember: No matter which tier you choose, all campers receive the same experience. This is a voluntary program that allows you to take an active role in our ministry.
It’s a part of our mission to make sure no camper is denied an incredible experience because of financial hardship. In addition to the tiered pricing program, we also offer partial and full tuition “camperships” to allow every child to join in our community. If summer camp fees present a challenge for your family, please contact us for more information.
