Campers from ages 5-15 enjoy the summer with pool activities, arts & crafts, sports, games and much more. Five year olds must be exiting kindergarten or an all day program.

Leaders in Training Program (LIT)
LITs are campers 13-15 years old. In the past they have aided in the programming of the younger age groups (5-10 year olds). They have assisted with projects around camp as well as taken morning hikes to the local area of Codorus Creek, done devotional work with each other and spent time with each age group.
Look for our new LIT program that we will be piloting during summer 2012. We will be taking the LITers to do community service as well as including them in the younger age groups to do supervised games and small lessons.
Field Trips include the following:
Graham Aquatic Center
DJ Wes Morgan
York County Solid Waste Authority
Roller & Ice Skating
At Camp Spirit we have a wide variety of activities for your camper to participate in on a daily basis. We will be swimming, having arts & crafts, playing sports: volleyball, soccer, basketball, baseball, kickball, group games, team building activities that strengthen the mind and bring campers closer together. We will also be enjoying camp songs, devotionals, color wars, theme days and a camp carnival. Every Friday we will be enjoying time at the Graham Aquatic Center after we spend the morning at a local park.
