Is your preteen ready for their own awesome summer adventure? Would they enjoy time in the mountains to encounter Jesus in a new way? Is your preteen ready to develop their faith in a dynamic, yet safe place?
Summer Camp at Wild Rock is a four-day camp specifically designed for students entering 5th and 6th grade. This is a safe place where kids will learn about their great God through age-appropriate teaching, engaging worship, and time outdoors in His Creation. It’s an opportunity to meet new friends and learn about how we are designed for Christ-centered community while being away from home, some for the very first time.
Preteen Summer Camp is currently full but we occasionally have spots open up. Please add your child to the waitlist (link at the bottom of this page) and if an opening becomes available, we’ll be sure to contact you right away.
What are the financial responsibilities?

How can I prepare my child for Wild Rock?
• We recommend checking out info about Forest Home at their website. You’ll find their FAQ page, videos, and other great info.
• As camp approaches, we will include a packing list with email correspondence.
What are the options for recreation at Forest Home?
A hallmark of summer camp at Wild Rock is the outrageously fun games and activities. Campers will face challenges through a variety of recreation options and skills classes. Swimming, archery, the Slingshot Swing, the Squirrel Run (our Low Ropes Course), Climbing Trees, and hiking are just a few of the options available. Forest Home staff members are experts in coming alongside campers to nurture their spiritual growth and foster a new sense of independence.
What if my child has special dietary requirements?
If you have a specific dietary requirement or restriction, contact Forest Home’s Guest Dining department with your specifications (including peanut allergies) one week prior to your stay at (909) 389-2271.
Who are our camp counselors?
Our team of counselors is a mix of NP Kids Staff, NP Kids Leaders, and parents. Each counselor goes through a thorough safety check and is chosen based upon their God given SHAPE. If you have a child attending camp and are interested in being a camp counselor, email Laura to schedule a time for you to talk with Angela to learn more.
Is there anything else you’d like to know?
If so, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d love to talk with you further.
