New Frontier camp is for students entering 2nd through 6th grade (minimum age of 8). This exciting camp is for junior age campers that love adventure, want to make friends, and want to learn about Jesus! From flag raising to lights out each day is jam-packed with supervised, age-appropriate activities like climbing walls, swimming, crafts, Bible quizzing, up-beat chapels and much more! The fun is non-stop! Campers are with their counselors and cabin mates 24 hours a day.

Alpha Camp

Alpha camp for students entering 6th through 9th grade. Designed for junior high campers, this camp is filled with fun memories, life-long friendships, daily Bible study time, lively worship, and practical age-appropriate teaching, programming, and supervision. Alpha campers can look forward to riding our 50-foot Goliath giant swing, flying through the air on the Avalanche zip line, testing their precision at our archery range, learning life lessons through our team-building initiatives, and much more.

Seekers - Summer Experience for High School Students

June 25th-June 30th

Southgate Student Ministries has an exciting summer experience planned for our high school students - we are going to be Seekers at Scioto Hills! This experience is open to all students who are currently in 9th-12th grade. We took a group of students last year and were so grateful to see God work in and through our group both during that week and after returning to Springfield. Seekers is a student leadership opportunity at Scioto Hills Christian Camp during the summer. Scioto Hills invites local church youth groups to partner with them for a week of camp during the summer. That partnership includes leading the chapels for New Frontier Camp (2nd-5th graders), helping with service projects around camp, leadership development, team Bible study & bonding experiences, and other classic camp experiences teenagers love! Click the links below to read an overview of Seekers and to fill out an application. Applications are due by February 12th. Contact Pastor Pat with any questions!

Family Camp

July 16th-21st (Week 2)

Please join our Southgate Family at Scioto Hills' Family Camp during Week 2: July 16th-21st this summer! We had 2 families go last summer and we would love to double that this year. If you have any questions, please contact Libby Aker at 

This is the ultimate family vacation with a purpose. Your family needs to spend quality time together vacationing, but they also need to spend time together growing in Christ! Our family camp is the perfect solution. It not only surpasses all the "vacation fun" requirements families desire ‐ it does all this in an outdoor environment that is saturated with Biblical teaching and fresh opportunities for spiritual growth and renewal. From the morning Brown Bag Bible Devotionals to the evening chapel, our age­‐appropriate, Christ­‐centered programming will encourage each family member. Not only will your family grow together, they will have a blast doing it! Each day is packed with a variety of great activities and special events to experience, but then again, you may simply want to hang out at the lake, lounge by the pool or take a nap in your air-conditioned room. The food is amazing, the lodges are comfortable and clean, the fellowship with other families is sweet and the adventures are endless. All this for one incredible all­‐inclusive price! We love families and your family will love spending a week with us in our beautiful hills!
