Camp Gravatt offers boys and girls from first through twelfth grade a Christian-centered, community-based summer camp experience, focused on demonstrating God's unconditional love to every camper.

 

The Camp Gravatt program and activities vary by session, depending upon each age group, and include most of the traditional things associated with camp--archery, arts and crafts, canoeing, nature, time to play and swim in the lake, challenge course events, campfires, songs, skits, as well as time for worship and developing camp community.

For all activities, the philosophy at Camp Gravatt is to provide a fun, rewarding experience for each camper. Camp Gravatt staff members work to nurture and develop campers' self-esteem, rather than their competitive expertise in a particular sport or skill. The goals of the camp experience are for campers to grow spiritually, make friends, share in an affirming, Christian camp community, and have a lot of fun in a safe and healthy outdoor environment. For more information on Camp Gravatt's goals for campers, click here.  With a retention rate of over 80%, Camp Gravatt sessions usually end with campers making plans to return the following summer.

Accredited by the American Camp Association, Camp Gravatt is a residential, Christian summer camp for boys and girls entering first through twelfth grades. Our commitment to maintaining ACA accreditation means we give priority to keeping up with camp industry standards for the safety, health, and well-being of your children in all areas of camp participation.

We have an average staff to camper ratio of 1 to 4. Campers live in platform tents and screened cabins with a counselor or, for campers in fifth grade and under, a counselor and junior counselor.

Our counselors are college aged individuals who show great capacity for providing a safe and nurturing environment for children and youth. They go through an application and interview process and must pass a criminal background check each year. All of our counselors are trained in first aid and CPR.  They participate in an extensive training week prior to the start of camp, and receive additional training in specific program areas.

Campers eat three balanced meals each day and are provided snacks and canteen each day as well. We work closely with parents of children with special dietary or other health needs. A healthcare supervisor is on-site at all times and administers routine medications as well as first aid when needed. An RN remains on-call throughout our camp sessions, and we have a relationship with local healthcare providers in Aiken for emergencies.

If you have any questions about Camp Gravatt, please contact our camp director. We welcome you to visit prior to your camper's session so that you can feel completely comfortable with your decision to send your child to Camp Gravatt.
