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 Expedition Day, Camper/Staff volleyball and basketball games, the Thursday Event, and topical, interactive seminars relating to the interests and needs of this age group. (Some of these activities are modified for 2021 summer.)

Expedition Day: Depending on the grade, campers will choose to travel to Hanging Rock State Park for a day hike and picnic, do a 17 mile scenic bike ride down the VA Creeper Trail,  or go White Water Rafting on the New River in West Virginia. Hiking is an additional $10 fee.  The VA Creeper Trail trip is an additional $50. White water rafting is an additional $80. More details on this are listed during online registration. (For summer 2021, the two Expedition Day options will be hiking or an all-day pass at the US Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC. More details and additional pricing in the registration process.)

We are confident that our 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.

Arrival: Check is Sunday afternoon between 4:00-5:00 pm. (Campers who have their license may drive themselves as long as all forms and signatures are already completed.)

Departure: Check out is Saturday morning at 9:30 am.

Camp Store: MCC’s store will be open during at different times throughout the camp week.
