Camp Akita for 9th Graders

Here are the programs Camp Akita offers for campers entering 9th grade in the Fall of 2019:

High School Camp (grades 9-12 and graduates*)

June 5 –11 (Session 2) | July 11 - 17 (Session 8)
7 days, 6 nights
$485 (members) / $560 (non-members)

These are the camp sessions you do not want to miss! We pull out all the stops and guarantee every camper they will have a new experience at Akita. We will wake up early, stay up late, and cram as many activities into the day as possible. There will be a full complement of options during the day from which our campers can choose. Some examples from last year are yoga, cooking, home made physics, and carpentry.

Campers will hear a nightly message from one of our staff members. They will have time in small groups to discuss their faith with their cabins at night and in coed groups during the morning. Our emphasis to our high school campers is how to live out your faith. We hope that our high school campers leave Akita with confidence in their personal beliefs and the knowledge that there is a large faith community at Akita that accepts them for the unique being that they are.

*You must be age 19 or younger to attend these camp sessions.

Akita Backcountry (High School)

June 12 - 17 (Session B1) | June 27 - July 2 (Session B3) | July 18 - 23 (Session B5) | July 26 - 31 (Session B6)
6 days, 5 nights
$415 (members) / $465 (non-members)

Akita Backcountry is our outdoor education camp experience. Each session is limited to 10 campers who will stay in two large platform tents in a remote corner of our property. By immersing ourselves in nature, living more simply, and sleeping under the stars, we often feel like the best versions of ourselves. There is something about cooking over a campfire and listening to the crickets that makes it easy for us to ask bigger questions, trust one another, and engage in deep conversations about faith. The program’s strength lies in the small number of participants and the relationships so easily formed as we explore together.
