Why Choose Highlands?
Let's face it, your kids just want to have fun doing something cool, but as a parent you're more concerned about a grounded Christian environment, the kind of friends they'll make, and the benefits they will get from camp. At Highlands, we strive to celebrate Fun, Faith, and Fellowship in everything we do. Camps are designed around a small group model where it's easy for campers to make friends, grow relationships, and share in adventures!
2020 Theme: The Jesus Way!
This summer we will be walking through what it means to serve humbly, feed others, pray, love your neighbor, and to forgive like Jesus did. Your camper will leave their week at Highlands with the knowledge of what it means to "be imitators of Christ" (Ephesians 5:1-2b) and with some amazing memories to last a life time!

We love to call JT a part of the Highlands staff family!
