Group Camp

Adventure

Ideal for: Churches, Schools and Organizations   |   Ages: Middle School & High School   |   Dates: June 28th – August 8th

Every summer should have an adventure.

The best ones are at camp.

A 6-day summer camp program designed for churches, schools, or any group looking for a unique adventure camp experience filled with exciting activities, life-changing experiences, new friends, and the Bible presented in ways that resonate with youth.

Explore uncharted territories.

Our goal is to deliver an exciting, memorable and life-changing experience to every camper who comes to Black Diamond. Through outdoor adventures, group challenges, and in-depth Bible studies, campers learn new things and create unforgettable friendships. Campers are encouraged toward personal spiritual growth, are inspired to build tighter bonds within their community, and they leave with a more selfless outlook as they learn more about the saving grace of Jesus Christ. They also face fun physical challenges that help them examine and define how their actions, plans, and decisions can give them a firm foundation in the broad scope of eternity.

Arrow TAG

We are hunters, and adventure is our game. We are unstoppable, and you are our prey. Take aim and bring ‘em down, before they get you!

Bouldering Wall

You may only be a few feet off the ground, but that doesn’t make it easy. You’ll need balance, footwork, and strategy to beat our bouldering wall!

Campouts

The stars never looked prettier. The moon never looked brighter. The s’mores never tasted sweeter. Get outside and experience life like no other in God’s beautiful creation.

Camp Store

Maybe you want the latest shirt, or a new comfy hoodie. Maybe you need a bigger coffee mug, or a fresh new water bottle to cover with stickers. Whatever the occasion, this stuff is the best!

Coffee Shop

When you’re in the land of coffee, you drink a lot of coffee. It’s okay, we do too. Come enjoy a nice, warm atmosphere in our Mountaintop Coffee Shop and grab a cup!

Blacklight Dodgeball

Dodgeball is better when you glow in the dark...

Drift Trikes

Fuzzy wristbands, Keds, and sliding sideways on a Big Wheel made for some serious street cred back in the day. Well, we've amped it up.

Field Games

Guaranteed to break the ice. This is camp-olympics! From scavenger hunts to more inventive contests, you're sure to make a few new friends along the way.

Ga-Ga Ball

Ga-ga wha? Trust us, it's not for babies. Part dodge ball, part tag and part king of the hill, it takes action to another level. Stay with it. Rule the octagon!

Hiking

Get outside and into the beautiful nature God created for us. There are miles of trails through our dense forest that any adventurer will enjoy!

Giant Swing

Ever wonder what it’s like to fly through the trees? Harness up and get ready to soar!

Rappelling

Your heart pounds as you overcome your nerves and step off the edge. What were you thinking? Total focus. Step by step. Now you're down, confident. Again!

Sand Volleyball

Bring it on. Serve it up. Spike, slam, wham, attack - Let your competitive spirit take over. You'll need it. Dig, set, spin, spike! Leave the campfire for day's end.

Tree Zipline

There’s nothing normal about this. You’re jumping out of a perfectly good tree. One of the biggest trees on camp, at that. Harness up, clip in, and get ready to fly!

Indoor Pool

It’s chilly outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t swim! Our heated, indoor pool is perfect for every season!

Crane Yard

Are you agile enough to get across? Use that ninja skill of yours and see if you’re among the few to make it to the other side.

3D Climbing Wall

Because climbing regular holds was too easy. Climb the crane, or maybe the logging truck? Which path will you choose?

Indoor Rock Wall

Are you a climbing purist? Want to send it on a more traditional route? We’ve got you covered. Chalk up and hit the wall.

Goliath Ball

Some of us wish we were gladiators. Take up your sword and challenge your friends in this epic team fight!

Low Elements - Mountaintops

The floor is lava! Work together as a team to get everyone to safety in this group development challenge.

Low Elements - 3D Web

For those who thought our 2D web wasn’t enough of a challenge. This will test your group decision-making on a whole new level!

Low Elements - Labyrinth

Remember that game on your phone where you guide the ball through the maze? It’s that, life-sized!

Low Elements - 2D Web

You’ve got one goal: get to the other side. Your team has limited resources and just enough hands. Work together to figure out how to traverse the web with this group development challenge!

Leap of Faith

Your heart is pounding. You look down off the platform and see your team holding on to your rope. All that’s left is to jump. Do you take the leap?

Vertical Playpen

Think you can climb to the top of this suspended challenge course? What about if you’re attached to a friend? What about two friends? Let’s see you beat our record. Hint: it’s under a minute.

Lord's Steps

Explore high in the trees with this suspended walkway. Whatever you do, don’t look down!

Stand-Up Paddleboarding

No need to paddle on your own. Why not invite your whole crew on board? Gather up your mates and get ready to hit the water!

River Tubing

Enjoy a day in the sun, rafting down the Green River rapids with this off-site activity!

Blacklight Mini Golf

All the perks of putt-putt, glowing in the dark! See how many strokes it takes you to complete this illuminated course!

9 Square

Four squares isn’t enough. Why not make it nine? Why not have it in the air? Let’s see how long you can hold the top spot.
