Week 1: Team Bonding 

The first week of the ELITE Program focuses on building community and growing in faith. Along with team building and bonding, campers enjoy one big adventure each day. These adventures are both on and off camp and include boats, high ropes, and excursions into the greater Seattle area.

Week 2: Service Learning

After heading home Friday of the first week and coming back to camp the following Sunday, campers enter their second week of ELITE. Week 2 focuses on service learning. Campers spend their mornings and early afternoons serving in areas that interest them around camp while evenings are focused on group bonding and fun. Each camper receives 35 service hours for participating in the 2 week program.

Mentorship

College-aged Mentors guide the program and lead our High School campers. The Mentors and campers form strong relationships and together dive deeper into Biblical truths. SAMBICA Mentors are spiritually mature and invest personally in each camper.
