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.

A great deal of time and preparation is involved in planning the camp program for your child. Campers who arrive late, leave during the week, or leave early, can be a distraction to the total program. Please respect the dean, counselors, camp staff and other campers by seeing to it that your child is present for the entire camp program. I think you will agree that few things are more important than having your child in a Christian environment and learning about the principles of God. Please plan ahead and see to it that your child is present for the whole camp program.

For the safety of all campers, to discourage homesickness and to keep the continuity of the session for campers, all non-registered youth and parents are discouraged from visiting the camp during their child’s program. Please phone the camp if you are concerned about a camper. If you must visit, upon arrival you will be required to check-in with the camp manager or dean. Please cooperate with these and other camp policies for the safety and well being of each camper.

A group picture will be taken at each camp session. Every camper will receive a picture at no extra cost.

Campers will need extra money for the Camp Store. All purchases are optional. Most snack items are $.50-$.75. Camp T-shirts are $10 or less. The camp store is normally open twice daily during most sessions. To keep younger campers from losing money, canteen cards will be available for purchase at the store and registration table when you arrive.

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.

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!
