Highlands has been a place of faith, fun, and fellowship for thousands of campers since 1946.
Kids need summer camp more than ever now.
We invite you to an interactive online program for your campers to connect
with Highlands’ staff, each other, and God’s Word.
Combining Faith Formation, Community Building, Service, and Fun
we will offer six weeks of virtual camp with small group Bible studies;
morning energizers, singing, evening activities and campfire with Brian;
interactive live-streamed games, service projects, artsy crafts, and more!
2020 Theme: The Jesus Way!
Your kids will learn from the practices of Jesus and how we can be imitators of Christ,
based on Ephesians 5:1-2b
We will learn about how we can Serve Humbly, Feed Others, Love Your Neighbor, Forgive and Pray!

So How Does this Work??
Highlands will send a box to your camper(s) before their week of camp starts. Inside the box will be supplies for Bible study, activities, s’mores, crafts, ice-cream-in-a-bag, and other fun things. Throughout each day we will provide interactive programming through Zoom. You child can talk with Highland staff, sing along with Brian, participate in activities and be a part of small group event.
We will provide a link so that your campers Virtual Camp 2020 t-shirt can be sent directly to them.
But wait, there’s more! Not only does your camper enjoy a Sunday- Friday camp program featuring Highlands’ staff, but after their week of camp they will be invited to weekly “Camper Check-Ins” for follow-up and continued community building!
Highlands will continue to use tiered pricing. Like our residential camp tiered pricing, Tier 3 reflects the true cost of this programming.
Families are encouraged to choose the tier that works best for their family.
Those participating in You & Me Camp need only pay one fee to cover both the adult and camper (Ex: $50 will cover grandma and granddaughter’s camp fee).
Scholarships are available. Highlands is committed to ensuring that cost doesn't prevent participation in virtual camp.
Tier One: $50.00 *
Tier Two: $100.00 *
Tier Three: $165.00 *
*There may be an additional cost if we are able to safely bring
campers to Highlands for a day or overnight.
