Camp Life

Trust in self and others, Hope for the future, Love for others and the environment

Our mission is to develop youth through positive camp experiences. We achieve this by providing a safe and supportive environment where campers can be who they are, learn about themselves and others, build healthy relationships and set goals for their future.

Each morning before activities, the camp assembles for Morning Shine, a time of song, skits and fellowship. Counselors and campers lead this valuable time together as we start each new day with purpose and learning. Each cabin group travels around with their assigned cabin group during different activities throughout their time here.

We close each day with small group devotions in the cabins where campers reflect on the day’s activities and our Morning Shine lesson.

Facilities

Camp Bob is held at Kanuga’s Bob Campbell Youth Campus, named for the late Robert S. Campbell of Gaffney, SC. The camp has its own lake, archery range, dining hall, chapel and other facilities. A solar thermal heating system provides plenty of hot water in the camper cabins and dining hall.

Boys’ and girls’ cabins are winterized, separated from each other and campers are grouped by age. Counselors and volunteers supervise and sleep overnight in the cabins. They are available to address any need a camper might have.

Meals

Wholesome all-you-can-eat camp meals are served family style. We make certain that each camper has his or her fill by the end of every meal and provide a variety of healthy options—including vegetarian. We also serve an afternoon snack. Please let us know about any dietary needs as soon as possible.

Camp Bob traditional programming is for campers 8–12. Read more about our Teen Development Program for information on Camp Bob programming for teenagers.
