Spring Heights Camp and Retreat Center is committed to offering a safe place for campers to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Since we are not able to have in-person camping ministry this summer- we created a virtual experience so campers can still have fun and get to know other kids their age!
The West Virginia Conference, in collaboration with the United Methodist Foundation, is proud to present: Spring Heights Camp @ Home: the perfect opportunity for your camper to connect (virtually) with their camp friends, grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ and learn new skills. We can’t wait to see you this summer!
Spring Heights Camp @ Home is an excellent alternative to Vacation Bible School too! If your church is exploring online VBS options, consider supporting Spring Heights Camp @ Home as a way to bring fun and faith formation to your children.
Choose a week or two!
- July 6-10 Beginners (ages 5-7) and Younger Youth (ages 11-14)
- July 13-17 Children (ages 7-10) and Older Youth (ages 15-18)
- July 20-24 Beginners (ages 5-7) and Younger Youth (ages 11-14)
- July 27-31 Children (ages 7-10) and Older Youth (ages 15-18)
Spring Heights Camp @ Home will focus on prayer. Campers will learn that they can trust God with their longings, fear, anger, and hope for the future. Each week includes unique activities to accompany the theme so your camper can register for two weeks to learn even more ways to pray!
Thanks to the generosity of donors, the registration cost for this program is free. Donations will help cover staff salaries for the summer. If your church would like to donate to cover campers cost, please contact the camp office 304-927-5865.
- $50 per child for the first week

How it Works
The week before Spring Heights Camp @ Home, you will receive a box filled with supplies for activities and crafts, helpful instructions, and information about joining your camper’s family group online. When you register for Spring Heights Camp @ Home, you’ll have the opportunity to let us know if you have the internet at home. If you do, you’ll have access to morning devotions, activities, and evening campfires at http://springheights.org/camp@home/virtual-day-camp/ If you do not have the internet at home, we will include a thumb drive with all of the videos in your Camp @ Home box!
A typical day will include:
- 9:00 a.m. | Morning Devotional
- 9:30 a.m. | Activities Time
- Noon | Lunch Break
- Varies | Family Group Time
- 3:30 p.m. | Evening Campfire
Morning Devotions: Campers will have the opportunity to watch a 15-minute video from a Spring Heights/WVUMC pastor to start their day.
Activities Time: Campers will receive two to three activities to do each day. While doing their activities, they will stay connected with their counselors and other campers through a moderated chat app where they can share pictures, videos, and progress on their activities.
Family Groups: Campers will be invited to join a zoom call in small family groups and with one of our Spring Heights camp counselors to explore the Bible, play games together, and to show what they have created during activity time!
Evening Campfire: Campers will hear a summary of what they learned during the day in their devotional and lessons and end with their favorite camp songs!
