Family Camp

Planning for a typical family vacation? You’re probably in the wrong place.

Looking for a place your family can come together, grow closer, and make memories that last a lifetime? Then you’ve definitely come to the right place. Welcome to Family Camp at Fort, where for one week in the summer, your family can bond deeply, grow closer to God, and have fun every minute of the day!

Make your summer vacation time matter with Family Camp at Fort.

There’s no going back now…new adventures are everywhere
Kids get to be kids – or animals!
Staff take time to share passions
Creation and God’s word speak loudly

What is Family Camp?

Family Camp is a six-night summer retreat at Fort where your family can bond deeply, grow closer to God, and play all day long. Campers tell us how impactful a week at Family Camp is for their family’s long-term health and closeness. Many families come back year after year to their 2nd home at Fort. If you long for a place where your kids and grandkids can safely roam and make friends, Fort’s a great choice.

Activities Open

You can come to camp and plan out your schedule to be jam-packed every minute, or you can plan to relax and nap under the Northwoods’ canopy of trees. Camp activities are endless. Most everything is free, included with camp! If there is a charge, it is simply to cover the cost of materials.

More Than a Vacation

Daily you will have a time of worship and teaching. Children and teens (infant through high school) attend their own age-appropriate session while adults gather to worship together and listen to the week’s speaker. Expect to leave feeling encouraged and deeply connected.

Calling all Families to share breakfast with their kids
Many call Fort their “happy place”

An Option For Everyone

If you’re the outdoorsy-roughing it type, bring your own tent. If “camping” isn’t your thing, we have a hotel-like Inn and Modern Cabins. Those camping can choose to make all their own meals, enjoy dinner-only with camp, or have all meals provided by camp. With so many housing and meal options, there is something for everyone!

Accommodation Options – 2024

What’s included you ask? Nearly everything! You can hit the waterfront to take out a kayak, do a flip off the rope swing and meet the animals in the nature center before heading over to the rock climbing tower and waterslide all without opening your wallet. Many activities are included, and when there is an extra charge, we work to keep prices low simply to cover costs. Plus, evenings bring a camp run activity to participate in. You’ll enjoy fry bread, family games, cowboy truth and more!
