What is camp?

Pioneer Club Adventure Camp is a 3-day, 2-night camp for 3rd - 6th graders sponsored by First Presbyterian Church. Pioneer Camp is a well-loved tradition in our town for the kids to get away a few days before the start of school to play crazy games, go on hikes, climb the high ropes, paddle down the Little Miami, and learn about God through Bible exploration and evening vespers. We hope that you will consider sending your children to camp this year!

This year's theme is "Heroes: what's your power?" Along with our typical adventure activities, campers will also enjoy competing in teams at superhero events and learning more about how God has given them unique gifts, talents, and skills to change the world.


Who: children who completed 3rd grade through those who have completed 6th grade.

(High School & Adult Leaders are invited by invitation from FPC Youth Committee only and require additional screening and paperwork.)

Drop-off: Monday, July 31st 9:20-9:40 AM at Camp Clifton

A note from Joe:

This will be my 5th year of Adventure Camp! It's bittersweet that this will be my and Cori Beth's last camp. Just a few weeks after camp, Cori and I will be moving to Kentucky to begin preparations to serve as missionaries overseas. You can follow our journey and learn more at . We're committed to doing everything we can to make this last year of camp for us a great one for your kids! In future years, Rachel Baldauff will be taking over the leadership of Pioneer Clubs at First Presbyterian Church. If you have any questions, let me know!
