Daily Schedule & Camp Activities

Every day at Fort Roller starts with a delicious family-style breakfast in Hilltop Hall! After some cabin time getting ready for the day, it’s camp specific activities until lunch— for example: Paintball Camp may spend the morning out at the Woodsball field while Adventure Camp flies down our 1,500’ Triple Zip Line. Classic Camp could spend the morning competing in an Archery Tag tournament while the Trail Riding girls ride on a scenic trail with their new favorite horse!

After lunch, Fort Roller campers head to free time where they can play Gaga, swim in the pool, play a game of knockout in the gym, get a milkshake… you name it! After two full hours of action-packed free time, another camp specific activity time begins. Afternoon activities end around 5:00 so campers have some time to shower and rest before dinner.

Following dinner is many campers' favorite part of the day— the evening service in the Arrowhead Woods Pavilion. Here, campers will experience fun, games, dancing, singing, and age appropriate Bible lessons. Services have a conversational feel and present stories from the Bible, then provide time for campers to ask questions in a small group setting. When small groups have concluded, all of Fort Roller will enjoy the camp-wide evening activity. From pool parties, to carnivals and skit night, it’s always an unforgettable time! Campers head back to their bunkhouses between 9:30 and 10:00 to get ready for bed & Counselors make sure everyone gets the rest they need because they'll wake up in just a few short hours and do it all over again!

WEEK #

THEME

1-3

“Going for Gold!”
Who is ready to go for the gold!!! It’s an Olympic year and athletes from all over the world will be competing for a gold medal and the opportunity to represent their country. Athletes train for years, with a very disciplined regiment. The Bible tells us about how our lives are also like training for competition. We'll talk about the “race” of life and how to run it well by looking at the One who ran it the best: Jesus! We’ll discover how the “prize” at the finish line of life isn’t a prize that will fade away, but a prize in Heaven that will last forever.

4-5

"WOW!"
There are a lot of things that make us say “Wow!” The stars, waterfalls, someone dunking a basketball, and the list goes on. We'll take a look behind the curtain at the God who created our beautiful world and when we see Him for who He truly is, we can’t help but say “Wow!”

6-8

"Who Dun it?"
HELP!!! Fort Roller’s gold has mysteriously disappeared and we suspect foul play. We are looking for a bunch of new recruits to help us solve the mystery of “Who stole the Gold!” That won’t be the only mystery we hope to solve during the camp week— there is a lot of mystery wrapped around who God is and what He has done. Even the disciples were confused when they asked the question, “Who is this, that even the winds and the waves obey Him?” Join us as we investigate Bible stories that will help us piece together the clues that reveal the character of God.
