Boys & Girls in Grades 3-College-Age
Camp Susque’s winter camps offer the unique experience of enjoying Susque's cozy lodges and grounds in the beauty of winter in the mountains. Campers are always excited to experience staying in one of our lodges, enjoying fires in the dining hall, hanging out with friends and counselors, playing board games, and sipping on hot chocolate. If weather permits, ice skating and sledding join the daily round of activities.
Beyond the fun activities, time is spent in thoughtful, purposeful, corporate worship with a guest Chaplain specifically chosen for his ability to reach into the lives of that particular age group. Small group time, a unique feature of our Winter Camps, is provided daily for further discussion of the chapel messages. Each day closes with a short devotional presented to each gender separately. Our Winter Youth Camps are staffed by well-screened, trained counselors who guide small group discussions, devotions, games, and lodge life to provide a supportive, encouraging community where campers feel comfortable to be themselves and ask questions.
Each Winter Camp is also rounded out with a theme or a special theme meal. Examples of past themes include 50's Diner, Expedition Everest, and Family Movie Nights.
Winter Camps are co-ed and split into four age groups. The Chill is for campers in grades 3-5, the Frost for grades 6-8, the Freeze for grades 9-12 and the Blast for college-age young adults. Freeze and Blast occur during or over the Christmas to New Year's holidays. Frost and Chill occur in January and late February, respectively.
