As in years past, students will have the opportunity to choose one of several "Activity Tracks" and one of several "Bible Study Tracks" to participate in all week long.
Our activity tracks will meet for a total of 9 hours throughout the week. When registering for camp, students must choose a 1st choice "Activity Track" and a 2nd choice "Activity Track".

Arts & Crafts
Our Arts & Crafts track will provide students with an opportunity to learn about pottery making, painting, sketching and much more. This track will work from our recently renovated Craft Shack and receive some hands on opportunities in a variety of arts and crafts genres. Our craft track will be led by some amazingly gifted people who love arts and crafts.
Our outdoor track will give students a chance to learn about and try out fishing,
catching and storing fish, food processing, preparing food from the wild (fish and small game), fire building, wood processing, cooking over an open fire, fire building techniques, how to identify and use materials to build fire and some other great fun. This track will spend much of its time in the woods & around the fire ring.
Sports & Rec.
Our sports and rec. track is going to be amazing. This track will provide students with an opportunity to take morning runs, play awesome games and learn more about healthy habits. Our sports and rec. track will be led by John Trussel. John is a long time camp veteran and comes with a bunch of great ideas for making camp a blast.
Table Top Gaming
This track is just a few years old and it centers around all things "gaming". Centered around developing teamwork and social skills, students will be divided up based on their interest in table top RPG's and board games.
Now in its second year, the “Camp Lebanon Culinary School” (CLCS) track will have students learning culinary skills from knife sharpening, and kitchen safety, to creating a one-of-a-kind dessert for the entire camp on Thursday evening.
Bible Study Tracks:
Our Bible Study tracks will meet for a total of 4 hours throughout the week. When registering for camp, students must choose a 1st choice "Bible Study Track" and a 2nd choice "Bible Study Track".

Take some time to dig in to the Word of God. In this discipleship intensive we'll be going deep in a line by line study format of some specific Bible passages. The tools you gain, will help you learn how to study God's Word at a deeper level on your own.
Are you new to this whole idea of Christianity? Wondering what this whole Christian thing is all about? Then this might be the Bible study track for you. Come and hang out with us as we spend some time learning about God and his plan for our lives. We'll spend time talking about who Jesus is, what he has done, and what it means to live as a follower of him.
How to Pray and Study the Bible
Prayer and studying the Bible are two of the best ways that we can grow in our relationship with God. Just like each of us grows physically, we are also also created to grow spiritually closer to God as we follow him with our lives. Come hang out with us as we learn more about how to deepen our relationship with God by spending time talking to him in prayer and learning about him and his plan for our lives by studying the Bible.
Next Level Disciplines
Do you want to continue growing in your relationship with Jesus and take your faith to the next level? This Bible study track looks at some of the next level spiritual disciplines that we can practice to continue growing closer to God in our lives. Spiritual disciplines like silence, solitude, Sabbath, meditating on Scripture, worship, hospitality, generosity, and service can help us continue growing closer to God as we live lives aligned with that of Jesus and as we spend time in his presence.
Living Out Your Faith
The theme of camp this year is all about being connected to Jesus. Jesus said that he is the vine and we are the branches. We are designed to live our lives connected to him. He is the source of our life and we need to be connected to him to find life to the full. But Jesus also talked about the importance of bearing fruit. If we are connected to Jesus, our lives should bear fruit. Our connection to Jesus should make a difference in how we live our lives. This Bible study track is all about how we actually live out our faith in Jesus and let our faith change the world around us.
Connected to Community
You were not made to do life alone. We are created for connection with God and other people. It is literally impossible to love God and to love other people if we are not connected to them. This Bible study track is all about being connected not only to God, but also to other followers of Jesus who can support, challenge, and encourage us as we live our lives for Jesus. Come and learn what it truly means to live in community with other people, living in a loving relationship with others that helps all of us grow closer to God.
