Inspiring Girls to Live God-centered lives
A PLACE WHERE GIRLS CAN EXPLORE WHO THEY ARE IN CHRIST
Camp Cedarbrook provides a safe, supportive place for girls to seek new opportunities and challenges. Campers experience achievement and build their self-confidence and courage to try new things. Within a structured setting, campers pursue personal interests in their chosen activity areas, such as archery, kayaking, and crafts, and collaborate with their bunk group in shared activities. Each camper learns outdoor living skills that will enable her to be comfortable and independent in the great outdoors and become more aware of God’s beautiful creation.
Cedarbrook exists to transform the lives of young women for Jesus through a wilderness camp experience that engages them in Christian community, challenges them to build new skills, and invites them to enjoy the great outdoors.
Cedarbrook Tradition and the Four Arrows
At Camp Cedarbrook, we believe it is essential to a young woman’s journey to have a special community to belong to, away from her normal routine and obstacles, that is dedicated to helping her discover who she is as a daughter of God and empowering her to grow into that role.
To help with that, we created the 4 arrows; Inward, Outward, Upward, Downward. During their week at camp they should grow in these 4 ways. Inward-by learning about themselves and becoming more independent. Outward-by being a part of a strong Christian community and learning to work with others. Upward-by growing in their relationships with Christ. Downward-by discovering the beauty of nature and gaining an appreciation for the great outdoors.
We’ve found that the 4 arrows helps guide girls towards becoming strong Christian leaders in their communities, giving them independence and decision making skills.
She will learn who she is in Christ
Every moment at Camp Cedarbrook is designed to encourage and support your camper’s growth in her personal relationship with God by providing opportunities to recognize and act on the need to accept Christ as personal Savior and Lord over every area of life. Campers are guided to study and memorize God’s word and apply Biblical principles to daily life. Daily personal and group worship, devotional time, prayer, and reflection help campers grow in relationship with Christ.
She will have adventures in the outdoors
Living each day surrounded by the natural beauty of Camp Cedarbrook in the Adirondacks, campers develop a deeper appreciation of God’s creation and an increased sense of our environmental stewardship responsibilities. Campers learn to feel comfortable in the outdoor environment and care for it appropriately. Every camper will want to care for God’s creation after she walks through the butterfly house, sings around a campfire, or hikes through the forest.
She will explore new and exciting activities
Camp Cedarbrook provides opportunities for campers to have fun, discover and celebrate their God-given uniqueness and abilities, develop increased competence and self-confidence and courage through learning and improving in challenging, skill-building activities. Whether building on past successes or trying something new, campers develop perseverance, self-respect, and leadership skills as they create lifelong memories.
She will make friends that last a lifetime
Camp Cedarbrook provides opportunities for campers to experience and build successful, positive individual and community relationships that are consistent with Biblical principles. Making new friends, learning to respect and value the differences in others, taking responsibility, making choices, seeing the results of their decisions, and working together as a team are all part of the Camp Cedarbrook experience.
