The core values that Cedarbrook Camps share are affirmed through the Spiritual Standard and Statement of Faith and the Organizational Goals and Camper Development Outcomes.

Cedarbrook Camps affirm that they will uphold these values within their camps. The Association promotes the benefit of the core Cedarbrook values through the functions, educational activities and governance.

Spiritual Formation

Encourage and support campers’ growth in their personal relationship
with God by providing opportunities to:

  • Recognize and act on the need to accept Christ as personal Savior and Lord over every
    area of life.
  • Study and memorize God’s word and apply Biblical principles to daily life.
  • Participate in personal and group worship, devotional time, prayer and reflection.

Relationships and Community

Provide opportunities for campers to experience and build
successful, positive individual and community relationships that are consistent with
Biblical principles.

Skill-Building and Individual Development

Provide opportunities for campers to have fun,
discover and celebrate their God-given value, uniqueness and abilities, develop increased
competence and self-confidence, courage, and perseverance through learning and
improving in challenging, skill-building activities.

Creation Appreciation

Campers will develop a deeper appreciation of God’s creation and
an increased sense of our environmental stewardship responsibilities. Campers will enjoy
and feel comfortable in the outdoor environment and care for it appropriately.
