Educational Tracks: (Choose one or the other or alternate between weekly sessions.)




We anticipate day kamp groups will consist of similarly aged children from both tracks unless there are sufficient youth in either track to warrant separate groupings for the week. Simply stated… program overlap will be significant except when an activity period is dedicated to Christian Education. Every youth will have plenty of opportunities to experience nature and all the summer kamp activities they enjoy at Vanderkamp!

Nature Play:

For families not wishing for their child to participate in Christian Education at kamp, we are offering additional opportunities for child-directed outdoor play during times our Christian Education kampers are participating in Bible Study or other Christian programming. If the weather is stormy, youth will play indoors.


Christian Education: 

Youth will participate in a daily period of active and engaging Bible Study as well as other opportunities to explore and grow in their faith through play during the week. See preview of 2019 Christian education curriculum below.

Frequently Asked Questions:

*Note: Vanderkamp is not a conversion camp and is open and welcoming to ALL youth. See overview of this year’s curriculum above. We strive to live, learn, play and pray together in a Christian community of peace, love, and acceptance of one another while demonstrating the values of caring, respect and responsibility for ourselves, for others, and for the world around us.
