A DIFFERENT STYLE OF CAMP
For many of the early years of its existence The Anchorage operated under the slogan “Decidedly Christian….Delightfully Different!” That is as equally true today as it was 40 years ago.
The Anchorage is thoroughly Christian in all its endeavors. Every facet of our program, every meal, every relationship has as its purpose the cause of Christ and His gospel. Solid Bible preaching, conscientious Bible teaching, and personal application are at the heart of each camp program.
WHAT WE DO
“Building honest relationships” is a phrase that describes the difference between The Anchorage and what many perceive as normal in camping. A camp program at The Anchorage is an inevitably personal, relational experience.
The “personality” of our facility encourages relationships. Most of the facility is under one roof, so a family atmosphere pervades all that takes place. The opportunity for interaction between campers, speakers, sponsors, counselors, and other staff is open and continuous. The proximity of the camping experiences discourages getting “lost in the crowd.”
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Our staff, committed to the cause of Christ and to relational ministry, unites the personality of the facility, the opportunities of the recreation program, and the whole of camp life into a truly unique, delightfully different camping experience.
Meals here are an event in themselves providing excellent home-style menus served in a manner reminiscent of large family gatherings. Banter around the table provides excellent relational opportunities.
The core activities promote participation and challenge at the individual level while providing the foundation for a lifetime of continuing growth:
- Water sports such as tubing and skiing provide personal thrills and challenge
- Kayaking and canoeing afford opportunities for introspection and reflection second-to-none.
Roller skating is a unique camp activity providing plenty of informal opportunities for building honest relationships.
Boat fishing provides a camaraderie that is difficult to describe if not experienced.
The indoor climbing wall presents an individual adventure challenge the whole year round.
The group activities are uniquely planned to foster individuality in a social setting.
