Scenic Hills Christian Camp is located on 80 beautiful acres seven miles east of Mitchell, Indiana. The camp is owned and operated
by several non-denominational Christian churches in southern Indiana.
The purpose of Scenic Hills Christian Camp is to provide a Christ-centered program in a natural setting which integrates spiritual
and personal development by emphasizing evangelism, discipleship, skill development and a deep appreciation of God’s creation.
At Scenic Hills, campers learn to appreciate others whose abilities, temperaments and backgrounds are different from their own.
Many friendships formed at camp last for a lifetime.
Because we are a Christian camp does not mean that only Christians can attend. It does mean that Christian values are taught here.
We see ourselves as a supporting organization to the Christian educational needs of our area churches. Scenic Hills attempts to blend the
goals of the church, the parents, and the child into a unified program. We provide Bible-based study and worship, we help the child
discover appropriate responses to many social and family issues, and we provide an atmosphere of controlled fun. We offer a wide variety
of programming styles.
Our facilities are available for year round use. They include modern dormitories, dining hall, chapel, shelters for teaching or
picnicking, snack shack, swimming pool, and opportunities for games of many kinds. In addition to our camp sponsored summer
programs, our facilities may be reserved for retreats, family or class reunions, birthday parties, Sunday School class get-togethers, etc.
We sincerely hope we can partner with you in the training of your child. While our fees are low and cover less than 50% of actual cost,
we realize finances still may be a problem for some families. Your church may have a scholarship program. We do not want finances to
stand in a child’s way of a great Christian camping experience. Please feel free to discuss your specific need with our camp manager at
(812) 849-CAMP.

Primary Sleepover I (Grades 1-3) – Jennifer Coward is the Program Director for this camp. Jennifer is Director of Early Childhood
Ministries at Eastside Christian Church in Jeffersonville, IN. This is Jennifer’s second year of directing PS I. She had an awesome
program last year and is working hard on this year’s too.
Primary Sleepover II (Grades 1-3) – Heather Unger is the Program Director for this camp. Heather is a teacher with the Paoli
Community Schools. Her husband, Yancy, is the minister at Fishing Creek Chapel Christian Church near Mitchell, IN. She co-directed
PS II last year and has volunteered at several camp programs in the past.
Junior I (Grades 3-5) – Jolinda Jones and Chris Wells from Lincoln Hills Christian Church in Corydon, IN are the Program Directors
for this week. Jolinda is the Children’s Director at Lincoln Hills. Chris is a youth volunteer at Lincoln Hills, a member of the Scenic Hills
Camp Board and all around good guy. Jolinda and Chris have been directing this program for a few years now. They have always done
an outstanding job. The theme they have chosen is ‘Dive.’ The main topics for each day will be: “Are you ready?”, “Are you learning?”,
“Are you leading?”, “Are you loving?”, and “Are you listening?” Those attending this program will be ‘diving in’ to a lot of fun, learning
and excitement.
Junior II (Grades 3-5) – Marsha Hancock is the Program Director for this week. Marsha is the Director of Elementary Ministries at
Eastside Christian Church in Jeffersonville, IN. Marsha has directed several programs here in the past. The theme for Junior II will be
‘The Amazing Race.’ The Bible verse, Hebrews 12:1, will be the main scripture for the week. The campers will learn that the Bible
compares their life to a race for which they must prepare. They will learn teamwork while completing daily challenges. Also, each camper
will receive a devotional booklet.
Middle School I (Grades 6-8) – Chris Tanner is the Children’s & Youth Minister at the
Georgetown Christian Church in Georgetown, IN. Chris has been directing programs at Scenic
Hills for a few years. Chris has chosen the theme ‘Vintage Jesus’ for MS I this year. At first glance,
Jesus’ resume is rather simple. He never traveled more than a few hundred miles form his home.
He never held a political office, never wrote a book, never married, never had sex, never attended
college, never visited a big city, or never won a poker tournament. He died both homeless and
poor. Nonetheless, Jesus is the most famous person in all of human history. No army, nation, or
person has changed human history to the degree that Jesus, the homeless man, has.
Middle School II (Grades 6-8) – Rennie Fish and Chris Austin are the Program Directors for
this week. Rennie is an elder and youth volunteer at the Mt. Pleasant Christian Church near
Bedford, IN. He has been a PD for the past several years as well. Chris is the Youth Minister at
Mt. Pleasant. The theme for this program is ‘Avatar.’ All the learning and activities will center
around Revelation 22:1-2.
High School Week (Grades 9-12) – Frank Spalding is again the Program
Director for our high school program. Frank is the Student Minister at the
Lincoln Hills Christian Church in Corydon, IN. This is Frank’s third year of
directing this program. He attended many programs at Scenic Hills as a
camper and now it’s great to have Frank as a leader in our programs. Frank
has also chosen ‘Vintage Jesus’ as the theme for this program. This will be
an exciting week. Nothing is ever dull with Frank around!
