Summer Camps

Welcome to summer at Houghton College! Every year, nearly 3500 students attend summer camps at Houghton College.

Summer sports camps

This year, we are offering athletic camps for students entering grades 1 - 12. A variety of summer camps combine fun, excellent teaching by qualified instructors, and a focus on encouraging and developing Christian character qualities while exploring a sport or specific subject matter.

Never The Same Camp (NTS) / July 7-11, 2019

NTS Camp sets the table for a student to meet with God.  But our philosophy is that the camp is just the beginning.  NTS is strategically structured so that the student is set up for long-term spiritual growth and success accomplished by providing a support structure that continues on throughout the year.

FLN Super Summer / July 15-19, 2019

Be assured, this is not your average teen camp.  Super Summer is the place to take your student leaders to the next level in discipleship, evangelism, and their walk with Christ.
