Camp for 8-11 year-olds
Why choose Wagon Train?
Wagon Train is a fun, rustic summer camp for kids age 8-11 years old, entering 3rd through 6th grades. This Old West experience includes sleeping in a real covered wagon, learning Archery and BB guns, riding canoes and kayaks around the pond and exploring Fort Logan (our three-story island fort).
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Camp-wide recreation games like Capture the Flag, the Water Carnival and our awesome night game Stampede will have you talking about camp for years to come. You’ll also sit around a campfire singing worship songs, memorize scripture, watch amazing skits about the Bible performed by the Wagon Train staff and hear each morning and evening the Good News of Jesus and his love for us. We almost forgot to mention: D&G tag, Chipmunk rappelling rock, Trading Post, and a tree house fit for a king: Burnside Manor. You’ll experience all this and more, like great food, friends and fun.
Some older mapping services will suggest you take the 245. It is a curvy, winding road that will take you at least an additional hour. DO NOT take 245!

Wagon Train is a closed camp. This is for the safety and enjoyment of every camper. We ask that family and friends not visit during the week. If necessary, parents may schedule a proper meeting with their child by contacting the Administration Office and making arrangements.

2019 Summer Theme
This year at Wagon Train we want students to understand that Christ follow-
ers… follow Christ. Although many people in our world say they are a
“Chris-tian”, they often don’t really know what following Christ looks like.
Even the apostles themselves wrestled with the question of how to follow a
God that they couldn’t see! This summer we will have a rip-roarin’ good time
as we bust out our banjos, harmonicas, and washtub basses and explore the
lives of those earliest Christ followers to see what it really means to follow
Need some materials to help promote this event at your church, club or group? We’ve got you covered!
