Higher Ground Camp is for Boys and Girls.

Higher Ground Summer Camp is a top-rated overnight sleepaway camp located on 700 gorgeous acres adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Townsend, Tennessee. Camp offers a summer experience rich in fun, friendship, learning and adventure. Campers range in age from eight to seventeen.

Camp dates for 2017 are: July 2nd - July 8th

Cost is only: $395

Higher Ground is a week-long sleepaway Christian youth summer camp held  one week each summer for youth from all denominations and faiths.

While we are a Christian summer camp in our morals, values and teachings we do not require a camper to be a Christian to attend.  We deeply respect the individual beliefs and faiths of each of our campers.

Youth need a safe, positive and uplifting environment to be encouraged and challenged to grow in their relationship with God and others.

Higher Ground is that kind of a place. Watch this video below to see the power that Higher Ground can have on your kids.
