Safety

Safety is our top priority. Rest assured that when you drop your camper off at SPARK Camp, our staff will work around-the-clock to ensure safety in activities, at the waterfront, and with each other. All of our staff are First Aid/CPR Certified and go through extensive safety training and background checks.

Faith Focus

Childhood is a vital time to ask the Big Questions and explore faith. We give campers a space to do just that. Because SAMBICA's vision is to inspire youth to a relationship with Jesus Christ, daily Bible studies will be run by counselors making space for campers to ask questions and share their thoughts.
