Summer camps that shape…

Character & Values

It’s a place to unplug and recharge while experiencing fun, adventure, acceptance, and love. Activities from challenging new adventures to creative arts to fun in the lake will open doors to learn new skills, develop confidence, discover abilities, build new friendships. It’s all built on a Biblical foundation with the focus on life all about a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Discover FUN!

The most fun place on Earth!  Crazy games, exciting activities found only here! Plus  fun-loving, God-honoring counselors. Experience personal and spiritual growth while creating fantastic memories.

Our Mission

We believe our kids are worthy of something more. It is the desire of Doe River Gorge to partner with parents in a shared mission “to inspire and equip our young people to be all that God created them to be.”
Away from the pressures of daily life and in an atmosphere of fun, adventure, acceptance, and love, Doe River Gorge offers programs where students are challenged to build their lives on the only one and sure foundation—the truths of God’s infallible Word. Each year hundreds of young people meet God in deep, life-changing ways and experience “defining moments” that alter the course of their lives.


Build confidence and overcome fears. Rappel vertical rock walls, tube whitewater rapids, climb a vertical ropes course, or engage in a battle of paintball.  Afternoons at the lake include water-landing ziplines, plus unique water park inflatables.

Partnering with PARENTS

There is nothing more valuable than our children. As parents, we want them to have every opportunity to achieve and develop their full God-given potential.
Raising kids in the 21st century can be a daunting task. Cultural influences seek to undermine the values we hold dear by reshaping their beliefs, values, morals, and behaviors.
Too often this leads to unexpected consequences—costly addictions, unwanted pregnancies, shallow relationships, low self-esteem, and a crisis of belief. As a result, hearts are broken, lives are shattered, and families are devastated.


Each person will be uplifted and encouraged while surrounded by friendly, smiling faces ready to help them have the best time of their life. In an atmosphere where “put-downs” are not permitted, they will find refuge and freedom from the stress and pressures of everyday life.

They will discover that they have value and significance and have been uniquely created by God for a life of meaning and purpose.

Find the Program that is Right for the Young Person you Love.

From the time your child is seven years old until they graduate from college, Doe River Gorge offers age-based programs that  inspire and equip them to be committed followers of Christ so they can be all that God created them to be. Click here to see the programs available.

Discover LOVE!

In an atmosphere where successes are celebrated and failures are viewed as stepping stones, young people will discover the love that God has for them. It is a place where past hurts and failures can be put behind, and where they can experience the joy that comes from living life as God intended.
