The greatest rivalry in all of sports is the Romans versus the Galatians. Every camper is a member of one of these teams and competes in daily athletic competitions within an age-based division. Our goal is to teach campers how to compete in a way that honors God. Here is a list of competitions that serve to make every year at camp an exciting and growing experience.
- Ultimate Frisbee
- Team Handball
The intense rivalry continues into four individual meets and one excited team relay meet that only happens at SB2W. Campers will be challenged to strive for their very best Here is a list of the competitive meets:
- Canoe Meet
- Track Meet
- Wrestling Meet
- Swim Meet
During Majors, campers at the Que receive sport-specific instruction. Major periods meet about six times through the term and allow campers to go deeper in skill development and relationships with their coaches. On camp’s closing Wednesday, “Majors” take center stage for Major Competition Night. All of camp cheers their team on as each major is showcased during a competition. The Que’s Majors include:
During activity periods, campers strive to attain different levels of achievement and earn their “S”. Along the way, counselors help campers develop basic skills and build relationships, all while using teachable moments to coach the heart of campers. Campers will enjoy things like:
- High Ropes Course
- Climbing Wall
Overnight wilderness trips give campers the chance to connect with God in His beautiful creation. These trips also provide an opportunity for campers to develop new skills and learn the basics of wilderness camping. Campers will create memories as they build friendships on one of the following trips:
- Rock Climbing
- Whitewater Rafting
- Mountain Biking
- Laurel Rumble
- Pedal, Paddle, Play (P3)
Cabin counselors are the best part of camp. Each cabin of 10 campers has 2 college-aged counselors who coach, teach, lead and care for kids. These staffers are hand-picked, Christian athletes from over 30 colleges and universities.
It takes a talented group of people to prepare meals three meals a day for more than 300 people. Our cooks do just that. Do you ave a recipe that you’re interested in?
The Kitchen Crew serves and cleans up after every meal. They also take care of a number of other details (behind the scenes) that make camp run. The Crew’s service and hard work have made them an inspiration to many.
Doctors and nurses volunteer a week or two of their time to care for campers’ health needs. They distribute campers’ meds and are among the first to respond when campers have an injury or illness. Camp couldn’t operate without the generosity of these skilled individuals.
The A-Team gets things done around the camp property. Led by our Property Director, the A-Team cuts grass, fixes toilets, builds structures, digs holes, repairs bikes, and sets camp up to win on everything.
The office staff consists of Lynda Smethurst (one of the 10 most-organized people in the country) and a volunteer. They handle thousands of details including registration, answering the phones and sorting mail.
The Leadership team is a group around 10 people who have been around camp for a while, many of them for over 2 decades. They coach, care for and develop cabin counselors. The leadership team also serves behind the scenes to make things like meets, trips, and Summer Life Nights happen well.
