Take a walk in the woods. Ride a zip line. Roast marshmallows. Eat ice cream. Breathe deep. Read a Scripture passage and thank God for the blessings of family. All of this and much more await your family at Twin Rocks this summer.

Family Camp offers a terrific, end-of-summer opportunity for families to build memories over Labor Day weekend. Enjoy time together with miniature golf, craft projects, swimming and boating on Spring Lake, hiking trails, Frisbee golf, and volleyball — or head to the beach for relaxation in the sun. And grow together through meaningful teaching times targeted uniquely for each age group, including engaging talks with our camp speakers.

The Internship Program at Twin Rocks Friends Camp is designed to equip young adults with a deeper understanding of Christ-centered leadership through the development of professional skills, ministry preparedness, and through relevant, formational curriculum within a Christian camp environment. This occurs through behind-the-scenes work, up-front leadership opportunities, interactions with campers and guests, mentoring relationships, and working alongside an intentional community of Twin Rocks staff with a shared purpose and vision.
Being a part of Summer Staff means working hard. Summer Staff rotate regularly between various work assignments, such as washing dishes, preparing meals, working grounds, and cleaning cabins. Some staff participate by working in specialized areas like lifeguarding, archery instruction, or in the camp store. Whatever the task, Summer Staff members work together toward the common goal of developing a servant’s heart.
Twin Rocks Friends Camp’s Servant Leadership Program (SLP) is a five-week summer program for a select group of high school students, chosen for their strong commitment to serving Christ through serving others. It is an incredible opportunity to learn more about leadership, ministry, and service within a fun and Christ-centered community.
