  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Medeba Summer Camp

    our take

    Medeba was founded in 1952 in order to provide a traditional camp experience, one where campers can enter a community of peers who share an engagement within the Christian faith, fostering spiritual growth. The programs are based in the traditions of camping, though have been updated over the years, including the development of rock climbing and mountain biking programs. Additional sessions to the summer camp extend the programming into the shoulder seasons; attention has also been given to the various age groups, with clear, sound programs developed for the various ages and stages. The focus of the camp is on inclusion and personal development, and all the activities have been carefully added and maintained in order to further those core goals

      Medeba has a long history of providing high quality adventure experiences that empower individuals and groups to explore personal transformation and a down-to-earth christian spirituality. They were one of the first Christian camps to do this and you can count on both their seasoned staff and their new leaders (Prosago) to operate with integrity and passion.
