At Camp Carew, We seek to help people deepen their awareness of God, each other and the natural world by providing a camp program and a setting in which personal growth can take place. Our hope is that campers will strengthen their own sense of personal worth as well as their relationship to Jesus Christ and to others. Activities at Camp Carew are directed toward Christian community. Through group living in the small unit, campers, and leaders are challenged to work, plan, play, study, sing, and worship together.
