About Overnight Camp


When you arrive at Frontier Lodge on the first day of camp, you can expect to be greeted by our excited staff who spend their year prayerfully awaiting your arrival. We strive to keep Christ at the heart of everything we do at camp. Our cabin and program staff spend their days deeply caring for their campers and making sure their needs (spiritual, emotional, physical) are met. Each camper will make themselves at home in a cabin with approximately 5-6 other campers, overseen by their Counselors. Campers sleep in bunk beds and often have late night talks with their friends and flash lights. 

Upon arrival at camp, each camper has the opportunity to choose a few of the activities they will get to engage in throughout the week. Get ready to catch up with old camp friends and meet new ones, sing loudly, try new things, rest, and discover Jesus!

Sunday Check-in

Check-in is on Sunday at 3:30pm. Send your camper on the bus, or drive down to camp for a visit.

Saturday Check-out

Check-out is on Saturday at 10:00am. All campers must either go home on the bus or be picked up at 10:00am.

Rest Day

Some campers are registered for two consecutive weeks of camp. These campers will also return home on Saturday and come back to camp on Sunday. This break allows campers to rest after a busy week, spend time with their family, and get ready for their next week of camp!

Camper Mail

Many families enjoy leaving small care packages or letters for their children to open during the week. Families are invited to leave mail with our staff at check-in. We require that families label all mail with their child’s full name, and day they wish for item to be delivered. Letters can also be sent to the office by email during the week. Campers will receive mail at a designated time during the day.

Calling Home

Families who wish to speak to their child throughout the week should send their child with a calling card. Campers can use their calling card to call home on our camp payphone during their free time.

The Tuck Shop

The Tuck Shop is our camp store! It's open every weekday afternoon (Monday-Friday) in between activities for campers to choose snacks and purchase camp merchandise. Two snacks are provided each day for our overnight campers! Our Frontier Lodge camp gear includes t-shirts, hoodies, water bottles, and lanyards! Funds can be added to a camper's account during registration or cash can be given at Check-in.

Banquet Night

On Friday night, we celebrate the end of the week with a Banquet! Although most of the week is spent dressing up in silly clothes, this is the night that we dress up in special clothes. Banquet attire can vary from nice pants and shirt to a skirt or dress, from casual to fancy. Sometimes, it's whatever clean clothes are left in the suitcase! Banquet night is when we find out which cabins won "Super Cabin", and we enjoy a special supper together in the decorated Dinning Hall. Please send your child with special clothes for the banquet if possible.

Birthdays at Camp

We know birthdays are so special! We love to celebrate birthdays with singing and cake. The whole camp will celebrate the individual by singing "Happy Birthday" in the Dining Hall, and everyone will enjoy birthday cake together! If parents would like to wish their child a Happy Birthday, we can arrange for a short birthday phone call or Facetime!
