A Note from the Director

Dear Parents,

It is well documented that kids who attend summer camp tend to be more confident, self-assured, and have a higher self-esteem. This is because camp is a safe place to take risks, such as: making new friends, camping out, sliding down the supers slide, shooting archery, or horseback riding. Camp Norwesca offers challenge by choice; your campers chose their challenges. This allows them to step outside of their comfort zone and try new activities that they wouldn’t normally try. All of our activities take place in well monitored environments and are designed to encourage kids to push through self-imposed limitations and accomplish things that will strengthen their confidence and ignite a sense of adventure in them.

As a summer camp professional and a parent, I recognize the value of introducing our kids to different programs and people that will build upon the work we have done at home and challenge them in new ways to strengthen their faith and build valuable life skills. As the Director of Camp Norwesca, I train and challenge my staff to create a camp experience for your child that will last a lifetime. The same experience that I would expect for my child. The first step in accomplishing this goal is hiring the best summer staff available. We hire strong young Christians that project excitement, passion, joy, and kindness, to lead your child on their summer adventure.

Sincerely,

Katelin Calhoun

Camp Director

A Summer Adventure That Lasts A Lifetime

Christian Community in the Camp Setting

There’s nothing like the kind of community that develops at camp. We live, eat, play, and worship as a close-knit group. Camp is a safe place to ask honest spiritual questions.

Hospitality and Servant Leadership

At Camp Norwesca, we treat our campers with love and respect. We go the extra mile to serve their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs.

Outdoor Experiences and Recreation

We believe healthy, outdoor recreation has value in and of itself. Our approach to recreation helps campers to cooperate with others, manage their fears, build confidence, learn new skills, and develop a greater appreciation for their environment and the beauty in nature.
