High School Leadership Program

Adventure & Serve

Did you love attending SAMBICA as a camper? Are you looking for a way to make your summer matter? Come be part of SAMBICA’s High School Program while having the camp experience of a lifetime.

Who is this program for?

All students entering 9th – 12th grade are welcome. You do not have to be a previous SAMBICA camper to attend.

What does the program consist of?

This overnight program consists of 2 different weeks – Adventure & Serve. If you are unable to attend both weeks consecutively, you may register for weeks that fit your schedule (but must still be in the Adventure – Serve). Once you have completed the sequence, you may register for any other available weeks.

Adventure Week: Step out into the world, unplugged and off camp. Start the program exploring the foundations of the Christian Faith while on an adventure of a lifetime.

Serve Week: Back on camp for a behind the scenes look. Serve in areas of camp that most people may not see. Learn to serve as Christ served.

Mentoring: Students are partnered with a college-age leader while in their program. This is a chance to explore the Bible deeper, build a strong relationship, and ask questions.

Community: Students gather from all of over the Greater Seattle area and build life-long friendships. Each evening will consist of intentional time to create shared experiences.

Community Service Hours: Each student will earn community service hours based off their time in the program. Serve weeks will consist of 40 hours. A certificate will be mailed at the end of the summer to each student for their records. All paperwork needed from school is the responsibility of the student.
