They also enjoy climbing and basketball in the large indoor gymnasium. Johnsonburg provides ½, 1 and 2 week summer camp programs for children, youth and families. Campers live in cabins, tents and lodges with campers of similar ages. Our main focus is on forming and living in Christian community. Campers participate in camp activities including: archery, arts and crafts, Bible study, boating, canoeing, challenge course, climbing wall, gaga ball, games, gardening, giant swing, high ropes, hiking, nature exploration, outdoor cooking, outdoor living skills, stand up paddle boarding, singing, swimming in the lake and pool, and worship.
