Free Summer Camp for Kids

 
 
A Little Introduction
Each summer, Jerusalem Chapel provides the opportunity for boys and girls to go to a week of summer camp for free at Rhodes Grove Camp in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Rhodes Grove offers a variety of activities to encourage and challenge the youngest of children through those in their teen years. Campers are encouraged to learn more about God’s Word, to experience new activities, learn to know new friends and possibly even learn a new skill or two – such as archery, horsemanship, swimming, rocketry and on and on. Opportunities are also available for adult and teen staff (ie counselors, wranglers or kitchen crew).
 
What Is Rhodes Grove Camp? Rhodes Grove is a quality Camp and Conference Center located in south-central Pennsylvania.  It has a long-standing reputation for its sound Biblical teaching, creative opportunities, and high energy activities surrounded by a backdrop of ‘rustic’ charm. Whether accompanying a young child on the campus (in the evenings) or dropping your child off for a week of overnight camp, you and your camper are sure to find Rhodes Grove just the beginning of a wonderful camping experience and opportunity to meet new friends while also growing in your knowledge of the Bible. To contact the campground directly call: 717.375.4162 or visit their website at www.rhodesgrove.com.
 
Earn Camp Credit!  We are excited to look ahead at Summer Camp 2021!  Our campers this year had a great time at Rhodes Grove. 
 
Camp Credit Opportunity #1: Make a Blanket Day!  On Saturday, October 17, we are making plans to hold a Make-A-Blanket Day so that we can bless our local community.  We will be meeting from 9am to 12pm in the fellowship hall with precautions in place.  For those who would prefer to work at home, arrangements can be made. Campers must have an adult with them at this event.

Camp Fees – All campers can earn credit to pay up to the total base fee to cover the cost to attend a week of camp!  If a camper chooses to purchase a camp video, camp picture and/or signs up for activities that require additional fees, those are the responsibility of the camper.  Also, for Specialty Camps (Horsemanship, Paintball, etc.) we will pay the base camp fee for their age group, and the outstanding balance will be the responsibility of the camper.
