Wilderness

Wilderness campers worship, learn, & grow in God's creation. Come hike, climb, camp, & raft on white water in this week of outdoor adventure.

Base Camp is limited to only 24 students and Outpost & Venture are limited to only 12 students-so sign up quickly!

Base Camp

Base Camp is setup on Camp ACC's campus and each daily activity is within a short drive of the camp, so they can return to base camp each night, where they sleep in our very basic cabins. Being younger campers, we want to keep these campers close with access to conveniences if needed. With that said, unless emergencies arise, the campers will do everything outside - worship, cooking, eating, classes, and daily adventures.

This camp week will be lead by the members of the 2019 Camp ACC Link Team. The Link program exists to give college students ministry experience throughout the summer. For this week, they will have the opportunity to lead the entire camp session. Planning for this session will happen under the teaching and coaching of veteran Wilderness Program Director and Community Relations Director, Juan Villalba.

Link team members are all students at area colleges and are serving their internships with ACC this summer by assisting Program Directors and their camp staffs for eight weeks.

Outpost

Having moved up from the Base Camp experience, these campers will set up camp in outpost(s). The Program Director for a given session may choose one location to serve as their outpost, from which they will do each daily activity.
