Day Camp

Day Camp at Gretna Glen (for ages 4 through 5th grade) is a wonderful way for kids to explore nature, make new friends, and learn about Christ’s love! Each week of day camp has a new theme, new lessons, and new activities; but there is a standard schedule that ensures all campers will experience the great things about camp like boating, swimming, and fishing. Campers are divided into age-appropriate groups for the week. See the various themed weeks on their website here.

One of the specialty day camp offerings is Mission Possible Day Camp, for kids who have completed 5th-8th grade, which focuses on service to our community and how to put Bible lessons into action. These campers head off-site to take on a mission project one morning of the week and also participate in all the great outdoor opportunities that each Gretna Glen camper can enjoy.

Overnight Camps

Each week of camp, Gretna Glen hosts 4-6 overnight programs that are tailored to different grade levels. No matter which program campers sign up for, they all experience general camp activities such as boating, fishing, swimming, crafts, games, and archery. As part of our overnight program, a portion of the day is tailored to the theme of that specific program. Adventure trips like Hiking on the Appalachian Trail, Camelbeach Resort, tubing at Blue Marsh Lake and riding coasters at Hersheypark are just some options available for our youth campers.
