Summer Programs

Registration for our 2022 Summer Programs will be open soon!

Summer is a time of opportunity! It’s a time of celebration of a finished school year, and a time together with family. It’s time for pool parties and fireworks. 

But it can also be a time of unknowns. If your son has struggled with the previous school year, especially virtual schooling, maybe it’s time to get him caught up at our in-class academic recovery school. 

Or, maybe it’s time for him to face new challenges  and discover the leadership skills that he’s truly capable of! Check out our full selection of summer activities below!

Nestled in the pines of central Alabama, our massive campus offers the chance of a lifetime to get outside, disconnect from electronics, and be active. We offer two sessions, each full of activities designed to challenge our campers to build camaraderie and establish lifelong friendships. This summer, we are combining our traditional Adventure Camp with our new Challenge Camp, creating two weeks of “Southern Survival” for your son to enjoy. 

Activities include:
– Paintball tournaments 
– Building and launching rockets 
– Flight simulations (and a front seat ride in an actual aircraft!) 
– Firearm safety course 
– Boating, fishing, swimming, and nature hikes 
– Map reading and orienteering 
– Ropes course
– Shelter building and camping
