Summer camp registration at Sugar Creek is open and campers are signing up! We are excited to build on our successful return to overnight camp in 2021 with new and exciting things in 2022. Our new program, Art Camp, promises to help campers grow in their creative gifts and encourage them in sharing the joy of expression through guitar, dance, painting, photography, wood-crafts or writing. We can’t wait to celebrate each of their unique talents with them. We are also pleased to bring back our popular new programs from 2021: Elevated, Night Camp and Rangers. Spots for these programs are filling up quickly, so make sure you don’t miss out. Do you know about our early registration giveaway! Every camper who registers by March 21 will receive a $50 clothing store/snack shop credit. Explore our website and brochure to find which program is perfect for you!

In the Wild
Cardinals at Camp
A quick flash of red against the bright white snow. What a beautiful sight a cardinal makes as you hike at camp in the winter.
Cardinals are attracted to tube feeders. Their preferred meal is black sunflower or safflower seeds. Suet feeders are also popular with this red set of birds.
Cardinals are known as an uplifting reminder that the faithful we have lost will live forever, thanks to Jesus Christ. Cardinals also offer a bright spot of color in the winter, a symbol of hope and joy.t Link
