In Depth

Transportation:
Getting to camp looks different this year. Instead of a chaperoned Fort vehicle for pick-up and drop off like in previous years we are connecting Fort families to arrange ride-shares. Learn more and sign up here.

The river changes people.

Don’t take our word: ask the high-schoolers who tackle Fort’s In Depth. This weeklong adventure challenges teens in ways they will never forget. Canoeing, white-water rapids, camping, team-building, deep friendships, and more await your teen this summer. In Depth is their chance to take their faith (you guessed it) in depth!

Registration:
There are still spaces for girls at In Depth. Register today!

Nobody is beating us to the other side…
Getting to know what God has to say
Counselors invest in time with campers
And he emerged out of the mire…

First time camper?

Read our Frequently Asked Questions! Don’t forget to invite a friend and request them as a cabin mate on your registration form!

Transportation

We welcome your family to drive your child up to Fort, take a tour, and meet your counselor. New in 2024, Fort is helping to connect families to arrange a carpool – learn more here: transportation

Financial Assistance

Fort Wilderness desires that camp be available to all people, regardless of finances. Don’t miss out on camp. Learn more and apply: financial assistance
