Start a new family tradition! Gather up the grandkids, and come to Stronghold for GrandCamp.


Summer staff provide the program, all meals are included, and everyone stays in private rooms. Inter-generational experiences provide time for stories and song, hiking and swimming, as well as quality "one-on-one" time.


Adults participate in their own Bible study, discussion groups, and private time, while grandchildren are engaged in Bible Story time, group games, nature study, and art projects. Shared activities include swimming, special craft projects, campfire time, and story-telling.


Join us for this special weekend at Stronghold!
