Whether you are a parent, grandparent, pastor, youth worker, missionary or ministry leader looking for a fun, safe, Bible-centered camp to send your children and teens to, Streamside is the place to be!
A Christian camping experience is very effective in impacting young lives as they are saturated in God's Word, see godly lifestyles modeled before them, learn new skills and see God's glory in a different way. We would love to work with you to provide a quality Christian camping experience to those children who might need it most.
Special discounts and scholarships are available to make camp affordable and available to every child.
At Streamside, the camper chooses and helps to plan some of his or her own time by selecting activities of interest. In addition to fun & recreation, we believe that the learning of new skills also increases a camper's potential for academic learning. As campers are successful in their activities, they gain confidence, eye hand coordination is improved, values like encouraging others, working together as a team and waiting their turn are emphasized, and the desire to learn is stimulated.
Because of our spacious and scenic Pocono Mountain campus and the diverse skills and interests of our counselors and staff, we are able to offer a wide range of activities including...
- Basketball and Volleyball
- Field Games & Sports
- Swimming Pool
- Canoeing and Paddle Boating
- Hiking and Fishing
- Arts and Crafts
- Archery and Slingshot
- Introduction to foreign languages
- Creative Arts
- Drama, Dance and Choir
Streamside is best known for its very unique Nature Program. Streamside’s Nature Center provides a controlled environment that allows campers a safe and hands-on experience with critters of all kinds. Each summer our own Nature Joe brings frogs, turtles, snakes, ‘possums, and other cuddly creatures so each camper can experience God’s creation up close and personal.
Nature Joe also leads nature hikes through the woods and our Bog Trail. Each week of camp includes the traditional mountain climb up Big Pocono, a challenging, scenic and memorable adventure.
As a distinctly Christian Camp, Streamside places a high priority on teaching the truths and principles found in the Bible throughout the day in a variety of settings. In formal times of teaching and worship, fun times of games and skits, as well as informal interactions with counselors and staff, campers hear and observe what it means to know, love and follow Jesus. Our desire is to saturate the campers in the streams of God's Word so that they can survive, grow and prosper (Psalm 1:1-3) wherever they are planted-even difficult environments.
Streamside is made up of a diverse staff of mature believers from all over the world representing many backgrounds and cultures. We believe it is essential to have a well-trained staff who are attentive to the needs and safety of each camper. We maintain a low ratio of campers to staff to ensure that each camper gets the attention he or she needs. Our staff and volunteers must complete an extensive application process along with background screening before serving at Streamside. Certified medical personnel and lifeguards are always on duty and secondary accident insurance is carried for all campers.
