United Youth Camp

Preteen Camp Ironwood

July 15, 2018 to July 18, 2018

Camp Ironwood takes place in the spectacular outdoor setting of Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch. The theme of this year’s camp will be “Family and Friendship.”

Daily camp activities are designed to enrich children spiritually and physically by experiencing camp’s challenges as a big family. Our goal is to enrich children’s relationship with God and with other young people and adults. Activities include daily Christian living and music classes, a zipline, swimming, horseback riding, field games, team challenge, the climbing wall, arts and crafts, archery/BB guns, slingshot, creek walk, super slide, mini farm animals and campus improvement. Fun-filled evening activities include game night, campfire sing-along, novelty olympics, a dance party and a treasure hunt. 

Camp Ironwood encourages teens to come and serve as assistant counselors and activity staff. Many of the amazing and caring youth who volunteer at Camp Ironwood have attended the preteen camp and return as staff to give back to the preteens the experience they enjoyed. The teens work hard during the day and in the evening enjoy teen activities, which gives them the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company. The teens also start their day off with their own Christian living classes and music. Camp Ironwood also greatly appreciates the contributions of the dedicated and self-sacrificing parents who give up vacation time to serve as counselors, activity coordinators, lifeguards and first aid nurses. 

Parents who come to serve and have an older child as well as a young child (age 2-5) may bring the younger sibling, who can participate in day-time mini-dorm activities.

If you are looking for an exciting camp experience and want to meet and enjoy the company of other young people striving to live God’s way, Camp Ironwood is for you!
