Director's Welcome

As a father of two young men who grew up at camp, I fully appreciate the challenges faced in trying to provide positive experiences that will help prepare our children for the future.  For this reason, we are eager to partner with you as we know how much a camp experience can enrich your child's life.

With a smaller camper capacity, Camp Carson is a place that feels like family and enables us to give each child more personal attention. Under the guidance of nurturing role models from the US and around the world, kids are Accepted for exactly who they are and are socially safe to discover more about themselves and others.  ​Camp offers a safe environment where kids are encouraged to explore a variety of Challenges through cabin life and our diverse range of activities. We strive to help every child reach their God-given potential.  To leave camp Empowered to take on life's opportunities as confident, caring, responsible, honest young people of strong character and faith.

We invite you to explore our website and see how we can help your child ACE the summer.
