Join us for the best summer yet!

Program Overview:

Learn new skiing and wakeboarding skills most days of your session at Lake Pomme de Terre behind CedarS fleet of ski school boats. Get expert instruction from CedarS certified ski counselors with two skis, slaloming, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, and wake surfing.  There will be opportunities to enjoy sunrise and sunset skiing sessions as well.

Ski camp provides a supportive, family atmosphere with many opportunities for team building, reading the Bible Lesson together, and meaningful discussions.

Stay in a lakeside cottage for the majority of each week at Pomme de Terre State Park, and come back on the weekends to a CedarS cabin to plug into some favorite all-camp activities.

When back at camp, campers will have the opportunity to swim in the pools, use the cable ski system, and sample other camp activities as time permits.  See below for a description of some of our other camp activities.

Weekend Camp Activities

Christian Science Focus

Our goal is to apply Christian Science to each activity with joy!  All programs include daily Bible Lesson study, “mets” before activities, Sunday School, Wednesday testimony meetings, hymn sings, and talks by the resident Christian Science Practitioner.

Weekend activities that ski campers might participate in at camp:

Cable Ski

Learn to kneeboard, wakeboard, and waterski on our 6-tower cable ski system on our very own onsite lake.  Learn to navigate turns and try our optional ramp jump as you enjoy ½-mile laps. The cable ski system can accommodate six riders at once, so your whole cabin can be active at once.  Cheer on your friends as they make their way around the lake, taking on new challenges.  Will you be the one to set the new record for most cable ski laps?  (Requirement: pass a basic swim and board navigation assessment.  This activity is typically appropriate for rising 4th graders and up.  During Family Camp, we often accommodate younger campers.)

Canoeing, Kayaking, and Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Guide your canoe around our own lake or down a local river with confidence after you learn each paddle stroke.  Learn the basics of sit-on-top kayaking at Kayak Cove, and then play a round of kayak polo.  Test your balance as you paddleboard: learn basic strokes and graduate up to obstacle courses.

Log Rolling

Demonstrate grace and balance as you learn to stand, walk, and run atop a synthetic rolling log. Our instructors will teach you the basic skills, and you can advance to log rolling contests. The log is weighted to accommodate the beginner or more advanced camper.  This activity takes place in our Junior Olympic lap pool or in Kayak Cove.

High & Low Ropes Courses and Zip Line

Whether working as a team to solve a low-ropes course challenge, experiencing the high elevation challenges on our high ropes course, or zipping over the lake, campers will have the opportunity to experience challenge-by-choice while they are pushed out of their comfort zone and into their growth zone!

Trampoline

Bounce safely and joyfully on our trampolines, which have 360 degree net enclosures.

Water Sliding

Twist and turn your way down CedarS very own waterslide, which is one of the longest in the state of Missouri. Enjoy a refreshing splash at the bottom, then hike back up the winding ramp and do it again!

Meals:

While at Lake Pomme de Terre State Park, campers will cook all of their own meals in their cottages.  Counselors will support this process and help the campers learn valuable kitchen skills!

What our campers say

“I’m fairly new to Christian Science and the understanding about God and Christian Science is unbelievable and God is a huge part of my life now.  I did Ski Camp.  I learned so many things.  I learned to face my fears and trust in God.  I learned that God is everywhere and present in everything we do.  I’d like to express gratitude for all the wonderful counselors and staff that supported me and taught me so many things.  It was the best summer of my life and I can’t wait to go back next year.”

- Camper

“Ski camp has been super fun. I feel so surrounded by love and God and it is so cleansing. I’ve been wakeboarding a ton and I’m having the time of my life with this group. We get along so well and I truly feel so contented.”

- Camper

“Camp is one of the most important places to me in the world, I wait all year to go. This year in particular I grew a lot as a person and Christian Scientist. From the inspiring Bible Lesson study I had every morning, I gained so much from my fellow campers and counselors.  I have become a better person and more devoted Christian Scientist.”
