Character College began in 1999 as a “boot-camp” for 10-14 year old boys. Now expanded to include girls, Character College is a week long day-camp designed to stretch young people physically and spiritually. With themes for each day including service, faith, sacrifice, respect, and “no whining!”, the week is filled with long hikes, bike rides, service projects, and an overnight camping trip. The week wraps up on the following Sunday morning with a special recognition of all of the “graduates” in a special presentation during morning worship.
Adult mentor volunteers are always needed for the whole week or one day – whatever your schedule allows. In addition, donations are accepted throughout the year to help pay for t-shirts, backpacks, food, transportation, etc. for the week.
