YoliJwa resident campers share in an experience filled with activities, singing, Bible Study, worship, crafts, nature, swimming, campfires, special programs and much more, all in a Christian environment. Campers reside inside the Main Lodge in dorm rooms along with 5-8 other campers. Each room is supervised by a trained volunteer counselor whose goal is to provide for each campers' physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Each week of camp is led by a qualified set of co-directors who in turn recruit Bible Teachers, Vesper Leaders, Team Leaders and Room Counselors. These weekly staff, along with the summer-long program staff, are committed to making each week of camp an experience that will impact campers lives forever.
Our Junior # 4 weekend is for those children who will be entering the third grade in the fall. This weekend is packed full of activities and is geared toward helping these children adjust to camp life and possibly their first experience away from home.
Wilderness campers are treated to meeting God up close and personal through His beautiful creation. Wilderness camping is:
- sleeping in shelters, tents, or out under the stars
- helping prepare your own meals
- small group Bible studies
- making close friends and getting to know counselors who really care about you
- hiking, boating, swimming, learning survival skills, going on trips and sleep-outs
- learning about God's world.

Father/Son & Mother/Daughter Camps
We are pleased to offer this program not only to children entering graded K-2, but also to a significant adult in their life who can accompany them. The intent of this camp is give campers a glimpse of the fun that Camp YoliJwa offers, and provide self-confidence for future campers. These two-day camps will begin in the afternoon and end the following evening, allowing for quality time between the adult and child, all the while experiencing the great things about "Camp" that they'll value for years to come.
