Merriwood’s Teen Week is one of a kind. It’s designed for the rising 10th grader through rising college freshman.

Our Teen Week is one of a kind! During this 7-day, 6 night program, campers will have the opportunity for positive, co-ed interaction through being grouped in co-ed teams for some activities. Campers will work together to analyze problems and situations, thereby establishing personal standards of conduct based on God’s Word.

Highlights of the week include Tuesday Expedition Day, Camper/Staff volleyball and basketball games, the Thursday Event, and team competitions.

Expedition Day:  Rising 10th graders will choose from a day hike and picnic lunch at Hanging Rock State Park OR a 17 mile scenic bike ride down the VA Creeper Trail. Rising 11th graders and older can choose from the day hike, biking, or go White Water Rafting on the New River in West Virginia. Hiking is an additional fee of $20.  The VA Creeper Trail trip is an additional fee of $60. White water rafting on the Upper New River (class 1-3 rapids) is an additional fee of $85). Rafting on the Lower New River (class 1-5) is an additional $95.  More details on this are available in the registration process. (Those signing up for biking should be able to successfully and safely ride a bike.)

We are confident that our co-ed, residential, Teen Week will train campers how to live like Christ in their communities and encourage them in their faith as they face the year ahead.

Camp Store: MCC’s store will be open during at different times throughout the camp week as well as at drop off and pick up.
