ABOUT SPRING HEIGHTS
Spring Heights is the camping and outdoor facility of the West Virginia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Our beautiful 950 acres of rolling hills are located just north of Spencer in Roane County.
Our mission is to provide settings in which the development of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ can take place through people, program, community and environment to the end that all persons may grow in their understanding of God.
Hello parents and campers,
The summer may be over but we are hard at work trying to make sure that summer 2016 is loaded with fun. We have a few ideas for new program options for next summer and would love to have your input on the programs and if your campers would be interested in them. I am going to supply a brief description and an estimated price range. If you could please reply with any constructive input and the interest level it would be greatly appreciated. Every returned email will be entered into a drawing to get a $25 discount off of their summer 2016 camp registrations!
"Adventure Bound/Thrill Seekers"
This would be a program for adventure loving kids. It would be centered around the high ropes challenge course and would include an out of camp day trip to Hawks Nest for a day of rock climbing and repelling. The campers would still get to enjoy all their regular favorite camp activities. Prices will range from 400-500 for the week. (The out of camp trip does increase the cost. It has only been increased by the amount it cost to climb at hawks nest.)
This program is for anyone who loves to stay up late and sleep in in the mornings. These campers would still get to enjoy all normal camp activities with the added bonus of late night activities including: night swims, capture the flag, sleep outs, and night hikes. This would be for ages 13-18. Prices will range from 350-450 for the week.
In addition to all the classic camp activities this would involve extra swim time, water games, log rolling, creek hiking, canoeing, and any other water related fun. This would be for all ages. 8-18 depending on interest in the program. Prices will range from 350-450 for the week.
Art/Craft camp (name suggestions welcome, I like "Crafty Critters")
In addition to all the classic camp activities this would of course include daily craft time and some large permanent art installment on camp property. Possibly a painting or mosaic tiling. This would be for all ages. 8-18 depending on interest in the program. Prices will range from 350-450 for the week.
Nature/Hiking (name suggestions also welcome)
In addition to all the classic camp activities this would involve hikes, gardening, creating new flower beds around camp, or some other larger nature project, like creating a new trail, or sleep out location. This would be for ages 8-18 depending on interest in the program. Prices will range from 350-450 for the week.
"Mini Classic Camp"
This is exactly as it sounds. It is a shortened version of our "Classic Camp". It would be a three night camp instead of the typical five night camp. This would be great for first timers or even some campers who would like to return but struggled with being away from home for an entire week. This would be for ages 8-12 and the cost would range from 165-215 for the week
Thank you so much for your input. We are already really excited for next summer and cannot wait to hear what you think of some of our new ideas!
