CEO Peg Smith Speaks to Parents on the Importance of Camp:
We're so excited to welcome back the CIAs!
The CRS Camp Intern Adventure program is for teens who desire to grow in their relationship with Christ, are ready to be challenged to lead through service, and just overall love camp! As a part of a select group, CIAs spend the week unplugged in the outdoors working with incredible camp staff to serve the campers. There are times for building relationships and recreation as well as times to study God’s Word and grow in your personal faith. CIAs will leave camp with a better understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Christ and what it takes to make the CRS magic for our campers! CIA s will also have opportunities to play and grow together through activities and games just for them!
Jump into camp and team up with your cabin mates to experience camp from a different perspective! This mash-up consists of some of your all-time faves of camp with a hint of what we do behind the scenes!
Some things to look forward to:
Please note that CIAs will spend time daily in service work such as cleaning, grounds, or kitchen help. There will still be plenty of time for enjoying fun activities and games as well as building relationships! We are seeking applicants who are growing in their faith in the Lord and are willing to maintain a great attitude while working hard to serve others. There are a limited number of spots available each week .
Admission to the CIA program is competitive and requires an application. Application form is available in the online registration portal. To apply, the parent needs to add the "CIA Application" Session to the cart and on the "forms" section, have the teen complete and submit the application form. Camp will not be able to access applications that are not completed and submitted. No payments are required for application.
Application review begins November 1 in order of submission. Applicants can expect to be notified within two weeks of submission of application. $100 deposit required to reserve the spot after the CIA has been notified of admission.
Teen Week! Week 7 ONLY!
Mark your calendars for July 21st-26th!*
The Teen Week program is for teen ages 13-17 who are looking for a fun, revamped version of summer camp! Unlike the CIA program, we do not require an application. This program will be filled with team building, next level activities, free time activity slots, and in-depth worship and bible study time.
We will also be allowing teens to pick an Activity Track! View the 2024 tracks below:
Everyone will have the chance to enjoy CRS favorites like time at Lake Ann and camp stew over the fire as well as fun new traditions just for CRS teens!
Space is limited, so don’t wait to sign up! We’d love to see you at Teen Week 2023 for a week full of adventure and growth!

(Ages 14-17, 12-14 campers per trip; separate trips for guys and girls)
Adventure Trips for Boys & Girls ages 14-16 is an exciting, week-long expedition to the Great Smoky Mountains. Campers pitch their tents and explore the beautiful outdoors while learning more about God’s creation. The highlights of these trips include Whitewater Rafting while camping out on sections III and IV on the Chattooga River, and conquering a high-soaring canopy challenge. Spending a week unplugged and working together to overcome challenges, these campers create lasting bonds with one another as well as learn new survival and camping skills! *Due to the nature of these trips, capacity is limited. AND THE DEADLINE TO SIGN UP IS MAY 1st!
