Summer Camp At Crestfield
Everyday is an adventure at Crestfield Summer Camp! Campers are invited to join us this summer for a week (or weeks!) full of friendship and fun on our beautiful, green 226 acre property along Slippery Rock Creek in Slippery Rock, PA.
For summer adventurers, Crestfield offers a climbing wall, both high ropes and low ropes courses, archery, slingshot, canoeing, swimming, swamp ball, creek hiking, nature discovery, 9-square in the air, capture the flag, ice cream making, gaga ball, crafts, music, campfires, campouts, Bible study, frisbee golf and much more.
A newly renovated dining hall and lodge and newly built cottages make Crestfield a warm and welcoming place, even for first time campers who are just adventuring out on their own for the first time. Returning campers will be excited to see new changes at Crestfield that preserve the spirit of the camp they know and love.
Trained and qualified, fun loving staff guide campers through adventures and provide space for them to reflect and discover more about themselves and their own spiritual journey along the way.

Crestfield Day Camp runs 8:30-4:30 Monday to Fridays for three weeks this summer and for a Wednesday to Friday short week right after the 4th of July. Campers will be welcomed each morning by their counselor and will start the day with camp songs and skits at an all-camp gathering we call Morning Celebration. From there, campers will set off on a day of adventure that might include anything from a slide down the zip-line to a metal crafting experience with our visiting forger. After a lunch in our dining hall, campers will enjoy some downtime at Bible Study where they will learn that everyone is welcome in the Family of God, and that as God’s children we are unconditionally loved…just the way we are. Each day concludes with a couple hours of poolside fun. Day Campers are invited to come for just one week this summer or for multiple weeks!

For campers who have completed 9th – 11th grade
Reduced Registration Fee
The Leaders in Training Program (LIT) is a stepping stone for individuals who wish to transition from being a camper to camp leadership. High School students are able to gain valuable leadership skills in a supervised and safe atmosphere.
Good LIT candidates are responsible, trustworthy, self-motivated individuals who desire to learn from others and to grow in their leadership skills and faith.
LIT applicants will be waitlisted until they complete an interview with a member of the Crestfield staff and a suitable position is found for them at camp. There will be a limited number of LIT spots available at camp this summer.
