Camp Hamilton 2010

Your journey is full of excitement at rustic Camp Hamilton. 570 acres of forests, an 80 acre lake, and countless scenic vistas help you grow closer to God. Swimming and boating on the lake, archery, hiking, climbing the wall, and experiencing our new high ropes courses, are just some of the adventures you and your cabin mates help choose. At night sing around the campfire, sleep under the stars or go on a night hike. You’ll have a week full of fun at Adventure Camp or one of Hamilton’s specialty camps.
