Sleep Away Camp
A week at Camp Monroe is like no other week during the summer.
When kids are away from home and away from parents and every day friends, they grow. New experiences, new friends and new challenges shape campers into confident, independent kids.
Campers, ages 8-16, gain confidence in themselves and who they are by learning about God, making decisions based on new experiences and challenges, and overcoming fears while developing character.
Our camper-to-counselor ration is 8:1, and campers develop trusting and strong bonds with their counselors. In turn counselors help campers grow and step outside their comfort zone.
Camp Monroe is intentionally rustic. From our wooden cabins and bunks to our no electronics policy, campers connect with each other in the real world – face-to-face and friend-to-friend – during activities, meals, and all camp games.
Discovery Camps: (Ages 8-10) Enjoy the best that camp has to offer for a whole week. This camp discovers the joy and wonder of the outdoors while building friendships that last a lifetime. Whether it’s your first time to camp or you’re a seasoned camper, you can’t go wrong here!
