During the week, campers will have the opportunity to participate in creative and varied activities such as a walk to Jenks Lake where they can canoe and kayak. Campers can enjoy arts and crafts, improve skills at the archery range, and learn how to build a strong covenanting community. This summer’s line up of workshops will include professionally led talks on developing coping mechanisms and dealing with mental health issues.

At Camp UUnderwater! campers will dive into themes of mental health and the challenges some face, working on how to stay afloat even when it feels like we’re drowning. To be able to support one another through life’s ups and downs, and to learn how to recognize the warning signs to depression and mental decline may help us advert a crisis. Emotions will be explored, and deep connections and friendships will develop.

Navigating rough waters can be scary and isolating and our loving community will help to calm the waves and be the light house to guide you home. Join us for a summer week with all the traditional camp activities and learn how to keep your head above water!

This camp is designed for campers completing 9th – 12th grades.

Gender Inclusive Housing Policy: Camp de Benneville Pines believes it is important that housing practices evolve to meet the needs of campers and to continue to create an inclusive, nurturing environment. It is our goal to provide an affirming, safe, and non-discriminatory camping experience that is welcoming to all gender identities, both transgender and cisgender identities.

Camp de Benneville Pines offers a Gender Inclusive Cabin option to campers who demonstrate a need for or an interest in such accommodation. We have a limited number of beds available and camp staff will make cabin assignments based on need.

Campers under the age of 18 must have provided written consent from a parent/guardian before being assigned to the Gender Inclusive Cabin and we encourage all campers to maintain an open dialogue with their parents/guardians.
