Play. Grow. Connect. At Carolina Creek.

Elevate Summer Camp

COMPLETED 9TH – 12TH GRADE

Elevate is a small, intentional community that allows campers to share experiences with their peers in close-knit family groups. Students will grow deeper in their faith, while each day participating in discussion-based teaching, small group times, counselor-led seminars, worship, and daily times of reflection as they listen to what God is revealing to them. Most importantly, in a week at Elevate, students will encounter the God who knows them, who loves them, and who wants to change their lives for eternity.

Powerful Lessons Taught in a Fun Way

Elevate is a one-week camp experience full of laughter, fun, community, and worship as students experience life to the fullest. In one week, Elevate students will experience the best activities Carolina Creek has to offer.

Each day, students will have the opportunity to participate in activities such as zip lines, the adventure park, the giant swing, power poles, and also spend a day at Lake Livingston wake-boarding and tubing. Carolina Creek also offers art experiences, where campers can record in our music studio or get creative in our art workshop. In addition, students will also have the chance to give back through unique service opportunities around Carolina Creek and our community.

Our Approach

image description

We Are Christ-Centered

Carolina Creek is an independent, non-denominational camp ministry inviting people to know and experience the love of Jesus Christ. We major on the majors and minor on the minors, focusing on Christ’s love and directing complex doctrinal issues to parents and pastors.

image description

The Bible Is Our Source Material

Camp provides countless ways to learn using all of our senses, our hearts, minds, and imaginations. We mine the teachable moments that are created by activities, dramas, games and being in nature. Time alone with God in His Word, small and large group teaching and discussion, worship through music and movement all allow campers to come alive to God in His revealed truth through Scripture.

Our Summer Staff Is Second To None

Specialized activity and support staff ensure that counselors get to focus on loving kids and processing every part of their camp experience. We are diligent in hiring young adults who love Jesus and kids, are exemplary role models and will cherish your child all day, every day.

Safety Is Our First Priority

We work closely with consultants, licensing agencies, vendors and advisors to ensure best practices in emergency procedures, medical care staff recruiting and hiring, activities, food service and security. We strive to keep kids safe physically, emotionally and spiritually.

We Partner With Churches
