Two hour support group sessions are scheduled daily for children to interact with peers who are facing similar loss.

Our over 20 rustic A-frame cabins provide a comfortable place to rest after a day of outdoor adventure.

REGular Camps are the core of what we do. Imagine seven action packed days of fun and learning at our main camp on the shores of Big Lake. Days filled with excitement, challenge, reflection and loads of friends, both new and old. Campers experience the best of what Big Lake has done for over 50 years … creating fun and building kids.

RAD Camps:
Our teen campers love to focus on their favorite activities. RAD camps give them that opportunity. RAD camps allow for campers to focus in on one chosen activity for the entire week. Whether they are at Big Lake or camping in a small group at a remote location, RAD camps give teens the chance to develop significant skills.

Adventure camp is designed to introduce younger children into the world of summer camping. The week is shorter and the pace is slower to make it more user-friendly for the 7- 9 year olds. Campers get a taste of all that camp has to offer and a great introduction into how much fun camp can be.

Abba's Child:
Tough times, including the death of an immediate family member and the impact can be dramatic. Abba’s Child Camps provide a safe place for grieving kids to receive support and acceptance. A place where kids can meet others experiencing similar emotions, receive accepting support from professionals, AND still have a blast at camp.

Big Lake Youth Camp's RAD to Staff program is designed specifically for teens ages 15-17.As a RAD to Staff camper, teens are given special leadership training while experiencing one of our awesome RAD Camp activities alongside fellow campers.
