Wagon Train Summer Camp
Wagon Train is a fun, rustic summer camp for kids age 8-11 years old, entering 3rd thru 6th grades. This Old West experience includes sleeping in a real covered wagon, learning Archery and BB guns, riding canoes and kayaks around the pond and exploring Fort Logan (our three story island fort) . But the fun doesn’t stop there! Camp-wide recreation games like Capture the Flag, the Water Carnival and our awesome night game Stampede will have you talking about camp for years to come. You’ll also sit around a campfire singing worship songs, memorize scripture, watch amazing skits about the Bible performed by the Wagon Train staff and hear each morning and evening the Good News of Jesus and his love for us. I almost forgot to mention: D&G tag, the Flying Fox zipline, Chipmonk rappelling rock, Giant Swing, Trading Post, and the new tree house: Burnside Manor. You’ll experience all this and more, like great food, friends and fun.
Come join us this summer!

Things to KnowSPENDING MONEY
What to PackBEDDING
Flying Fox:Zip Line
The Flying Fox is an amazing zip line that carries campers across our upper lawn. You'll travel from the top of a 12' tower on a hill, over 250' feet across the lawn, try to touch the tree at the end and then settle back in the middle where you can safely exit the seat. It's fast, safe and fun!
The Giant Swing is one of the most fun thrill rides at Wagon Train. Enjoyed by kids and adults, this 10' tower and 40' swing make for quite a ride.
D & G:David and Goliath disc tag
D&G is short for David & Goliath. It is a tag game played with discs between campers (Davids) and their counselors (Goliaths). When campers or counselors get tagged they must place their disc on their head and walk back to "Heaven" until the next game. If the Davids eliminate all the Goliaths then the Davids win and vice-versa. This is a favorite of many campers and a highlight of their experience.
Rappelling is a great adventure activity. Campers will learn how to use safety equipment to rappelling down our very own Chipmonk Rock. This is an excellent exercise in faith that challenges campers to put their trust in the equipment and our instructors.
BB GunsCampers have an opportunity to learn how to safely handle and shoot a BB gun. They then get a chance to test their aim as they compete for the sharp-shooter award. This activity is instructed by the Wagon Train staff and supervised by the counselors.
Fort Logan is our enormous three-story island fort that is perfect for hours of fun. Every Monday there is a huge water fight on the island. It is complete with stairs, a jail, three towers and bridges.
Among the tree in the forest you’ll find our three story twisted tree house. Featuring two tower platforms high in the air, a huge cargo net, a wooden sky-bridge and a swinging bridge.
During this activity campers will be instructed by Wagon Train staff how to properly shoot a bow and arrow. Helped and encouraged by their counselors, campers will be competing for the WT marksmanship award.
Canoes / Kayaks
The cool calm waters of the WT Pond are perfect for boating. Grab a friend and hop in a canoe or go solo in one of our kayaks. Either way, you are sure to have fun out on the water. Join us on Monday for boat races.
Along with their counselor, campers get to exercise their creativity as they personalize their very own craft. During this time we take the opportunity to compare the craft with a truth from God's Word to help the campers understand that we all have a Creator that loves us
Catch The Outlaw
Every day at free time the Outlaw is hidden somewhere in small camp. Be the first to solve the riddle and find him and you will earn points for your wagon.
A great place to cool off with friends after an afternoon of big fun. Supervised by our excellent Wagon Train Lifeguards, everyone is sure to have a fun, safe time here.
During free time you will work up a hunger, so stop by for a snack and a cold drink then get back to playing. The Trading Post also has great souvenirs, gifts and crafts available for purchase.
On Tuesday, stop by the Trading Post and pick up a wooden racecar, wagon or train. Build it, paint it and get ready for the big race. A prize is available for the fastest racer.
A large 16’ version of the old classic game of checkers. Large enough to use people for checkers!
