Activities and Trip information
Gretna Glen offers a wide array of age appropriate activities for all of our campers. All activities are supervised by trained staff and volunteers who make camper safety the first priority. Each program has a unique schedule that includes specialty program activities to enhance the camper experience. All overnight campers have an afternoon “choice time” where they are able to choose between archery (for 3-12th grade programs), boating, crafts, fishing, games, or swimming. Other scheduled activities may include nature study, hiking, bouldering, sports, teambuilding, climbing tower, personal challenge course, high challenge course, campfire, worship, drama, creek stomping, outdoor cooking and more! All campers will also enjoy daily Bible Discovery time.
Gretna Glen uses off- site opportunities to enhance the programming we offer at camp. Program descriptions listed with a van icon will include off site trips. All offsite trips are day trips. Activity, transportation, and meal expenses are included in the camp fee. A few of our trip locations will have an option for additional trip money from home to be sent along with the camper for souvenir type purchases. Any special trip money will be collected on Sunday at registration.
Please note that all activities and experiences on Gretna Glen offsite trips are experienced at beginner level. This includes all horseback riding, canoeing, water sports, and biking. All risks have been assessed and all emergency procedures have been developed for each offsite trip.
