Classic builds on all the best camp memories and amplifies the focus on community and worship. Many of your camp favorites will continue, including Challenge Island, beach time, games, and even some new activities! Classic involves a change of pace which brings deep interaction with one another and scripture as we embrace who God is creating us to be.

This day camp program runs Monday-Thursday with an option to stay overnight Thursday night in a cabin and engage in extra evening activities and closing the week Friday morning.

Water Week combines water sports and a lifeguard certification course with camp! Activities like kayaking, tubing, challenge island, worship and Bible study fill our days in addition to lifeguard training. Pre-camp course work is required and campers must pass swim and written tests, and lifesaving skills demonstrations for certification. Once certified, campers may return in later weeks to help lifeguard or teach swim lessons. Note: The Red Cross requires lifeguard certification candidates to be 15 years or older.
Experience what it is like to be Geneva staff firsthand by partnering with a counselor and guiding a cabin group through the week. This is a two-week program, the first week focuses on developing the CIT community and studying scripture together while learning the rhythms of camp.

Applications must be received by February 28. An interview will follow to determine acceptance into this program. Note that CITs return home during the weekend in the middle of their 2- week session.

These items are not permitted and will be held by the counselor and returned at the end of the week.
Punch cards are the best way for High School campers to make purchases from the camp store, where they can buy snacks, apparel, and more. You can choose the amount of spending money they’ll have for their week of camp ($15, $30, or $40), and the punch card will be on the back of their nametag. Punch cards are less likely than cash to be misplaced, and if there is money remaining at the end of the week, you are able to get a refund in the camp store.
The $10.00 Tie-Dye Fee pays for a pillow case or a white GENEVA t-shirt for your camper to tie-dye. There will be an alternative activity for campers who choose not to tie-dye. Alternatively, tie-dying is free if your camper supplies their own white t-shirt or pillow case. We recommend these items be 100% cotton, washed and pre-shrunk with no fabric softener. Your camper can cover the cost of a shirt or pillow case with their punch card while they are at camp.
