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: Adventure Camp flies down our 1,500’ Triple Zip Line while Classic Camp spends the morning competing in an Archery Tag tournament!

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! They also have the option of signing up for special elective activities during free time, such as paintball or a horseback trail ride! 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 Longhouse! 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!

2024 Camp Theme

Some of the week's camp activities, along with the evening services, will take on the feel of our theme and this summer's theme is... “Come Alive!”

What does it mean to come alive? Is it an increased energy, a jolt of joy, or an adrenaline rush? Or is it much deeper than that? The Bible says that we were dead in our sins, but made alive through Christ. Together we will discover the life God originally created and the new life Jesus is ready to give us. Join us this summer as we discover what it means to Come Alive!
