Champ Camp

Champ Camp 2018

Beaver Camp isn't just for kids. This adventure is exclusively for young adults ages 18-30. The retreat features classic camp games, outdoor adventures, breakout sessions about faith, late-night talks around the bonfire, and the opportunity to be refreshed in the Adirondacks.


OCTOBER 18-20, 2019

It’s everything you love about summer camp, but for adults! Champ Camp begins at 7:00 PM on Friday and ends at 11:00 AM on Sunday. The registration fee of $95 covers everything throughout the weekend: activities on the Challenge Course, lodging in dormitory-style cabins, meals, and use of the canoes, trails, and other amenities at Beaver Camp

Check-in on Friday is 6:00 - 7:00 PM in the office lobby. The retreat ends on Sunday at 11:00 AM.

Private lodging is available for married couples in the motels; the registration fee for this option is $240 per couple. However, everyone is invited to stay in the dormitory-style cabins. If staying in a motel room as a couple, please register by calling the Beaver Camp office at (315) 376-2640.
