10 Years and Counting!
The Rock Youth Camp is celebrating our 10th year Anniversary by opening the Everglades Campus! Our little Fortress in the Forest. Located next to Picayune Strand State Park.
Lets make 2021 the best summer ever! We are excited to welcome a new generation of campers! This year we are offering new activities and offer extended stay camps, so pack up and be our guest at the Pavilion for our retreats and specialty camps! Most of our activites take place outdoors in the fresh air. Indoor activities will be semi outdoors in a screened area. We will do our best to keep it a Covid Free Zone.
We Believe that children are the most precious creation of all! It is our desire to provide a safe place to go to have fun, explore in nature, and discover new things that will enrich their lives. We can do this by providing your child with safe, healthy, educational and recreational activities that will be fun and faith based. We promise to care for them with the best of our ability and have experiences at camp that have purpose, add value and have a lasting impact that will last a lifetime.
Our Director has 20 years experience working with children, has Level 2 background check, and is certified in Early Childhood Development by the Department of Family and Children's Services and years of VBS camps and Youth Ministry. Chaperoning large groups to retreats and conferences.
Safety Let's try to keep a Covid Free Camp!- We are CDC Compliant practicing safe distancing, temp checks, and will require mask inside, we have handwashing station and will wash hands often. Our Directors are CPR trained, First Aid kits and fire extinguishers are visible and will have Fire, weather and lock down drills. The Camp is equipped with cameras throughout the campus, and the counselors will have whistles, 2 way radios, and cell phones to reach them at all times.
Volunteers OUR VOLUNTEERS ROCK! Many hours of time, effort, training and dedication goes in making sure your child has the best camping experience possible. Lets have fun, make friends, and participate in a variety of activities that they will engage, challenge and encourage your child to do. Our volunteers are recruited high school and honor students that are interning for college credits through the Bright Futures program. They take their time very seriously. When you see them make sure to say "Thanks!" Camp would not be possible without them!
