Do you love basketball and want to improve your skills?

Grow in your basketball skills at summer camp through drills, conditioning and scrimmages. Basketball is played three times a day and often campers want more! Improve your game, have fun and build friendships. Learn truth from the Bible and be challenged and encouraged daily at chapel.

Parent FAQs

What if my camper needs medical help?

A full-time nurse and doctor are available to care for the campers and staff. The nurse will assist campers with any of their regular medications.

How will my camper get to Port Alsworth?

We will help coordinate your camper’s travel through one of the air taxis or local ministry flights. They will most likely be traveling in a plane with other campers coming to that week of camp.

What will my camper be doing in chapel?

A majority of campers rate chapel as their favorite activity. Chapel happens each morning and evening and is full of fun activities, singing and learning from the Bible.

Who are the counselors?

  • Our counselors are volunteers who come from all over the United States, typically with a church group. They go through an application and interview process including background checks. We do our best to find and train quality people who will love and serve our campers

What if my camper gets homesick?

Homesickness can be common the first day or two of camp. We are compassionate and do our best to engage the campers with activities and cabin mates and find they usually are in love with camp by the second day.

What if I miss my child and want to see how they are doing?

We understand it can be hard to send your child to camp and are grateful you trust us with them for the week. Please call the office if you are concerned about your camper and we will give you an update on how they are doing.
