What's Family Camp Like?

Most people come to family camp to unplug from their ordinary lives, add depth to family relationships and grow in their understanding of God's Word. Many come away feeling better equipped to live their lives together in a way that brings glory to the Lord. 

Just like our family campers are intentional about coming to camps each year, our staff is intentional about what we plan and how we serve. 

Who attends family camp?

Each family camp is comprised of 35-70 families. Families come in all ages and sizes. We love ministering to young families just starting their family camp tradition. We serve blended families that are looking to grow even closer. We enjoy serving empty nesters, who come to enjoy family camp with or without their children and grandchildren. When it comes down to it, we are passionate about seeing families spend time together - to grow in their relationships together and with the Lord. 

What's the "feel" of camp?

Forest Springs is situated within the majestic forests of the northwoods, alongside several spring-fed lakes. In this natural environment, we have several trails and activity areas that allow our family campers to learn and have fun in God's perfect creation. 

Our lodging options range from tent sites to our lodge rooms, depending on the preferences of our family campers. Our modern facilities ensure that campers are comfortable and well cared for by our well-trained, mission-driven staff. We work hard to ensure we provide the comforts of modern amenities, complemented by the natural beauty of the northwoods. 

Family camp at Forest Springs is casual and relaxed. We encourage families to be themselves, have fun and create a lot of memories!

Families can choose to participate in whatever they choose. There is no pressure! With that said, we would love for you to at least participate in Bible teaching sessions and kid's classes. We believe you will benefit a great deal from having attended. 

If you are new to camp, we would love to show you around at the beginning of camp and answer any questions you might have!
