Eight AM breakfast? Nope. Waking up with the sun? No way! Staying out all night? Oh yes! Eclipse is perfect for those who can't quite seem to get up in the morning and want to experience the best of Asbury Hills at night. While the rest of camp is sleeping, you will be ziplining, swimming, shooting archery, and climbing until the wee morning hours. Even though the night is dark, you'll get to experience God's light in new and crazy ways! So grab your flashlight, toss the alarm clock, and sign up for your spot today!
Dates: August 3-8
What comes to mind when you think about a perfect Adventure in God's creation? Would you find yourself on top of a giant mountain with incredible views? Swimming under a waterfall? Hiking in the wilderness? Crashing down a whitewater river? And making new best friends while having the adventure of a lifetime? That's what we thought too. If you want to experience the less-traveled path, try out one of these camps this summer:
Whitewater: Campers in the Adventure:
Whitewater program will spend two days canoeing on Lake Jocassee,
seeing waterfalls and spending the night under the stars. Then we'll up the
excitement with two days of whitewater rafting on the Chattooga and Pigeon Rivers.

Ultimate: Can't decide between Climbing and Whitewater? No problem! Live the best of both worlds with Adventure: Ultimate. Spend time reaching new heights on our high ropes elements at camp, and then finish the week with a whitewater rafting trip down the Chattooga River.
And if that wasn't enough, campers in the Adventure Program will be spending their time learning outdoor skills while backpacking (campers should be able to carry a 26-35lb pack for up to 6 miles) and growing in their faith through small, intimate devotions with their Trip Leaders. Don't miss out on your Adventure; sign up today!
Asbury Hills has always focused on making connections - connections to God, connections to people, and connections to nature. Connect aims to add a new connection: connecting with "windows" of technology. Campers will bring their cell phones, and at designated times, their counselors will retrieve them allowing for participation in a range of activities: some small group exercises, photo searches in nature, group initiatives, and even being able to connect to home. Along with those select "windows" of technology, campers will enjoy all of the other awesome activities that make up our other camp sessions. Although Connect campers will have access to their cell phones at times during the week, all other campers will still be technology free at Asbury Hills.
Dates: July 13-18
