In addition to our traditional athletics, performing arts, fine arts, extreme sports and team-building programs, we have our own recreational lake, water sports, horseback, archery, rock climbing, giant swing, ultimate frisbee and engineering to our list of growing activities.

Camper Checklist: Need to know what to pack for your student’s week at camp?  Download our CAMPER CHECKLIST here to make sure they are prepared.

Camper E-Mail: Campers can receive email while at camp for the week.  You can email them at 

Camper Mail: Campers can receive mail at our address- 8824 Brownsford Rd, Fountain Run, KY 42133.  Please put the camper’s name on the envelope or package.

Drop-off: Students should be dropped off at our camp property in Kentucky at 2pm on the start date of their camp session. If your child needs transportation to or from Scottsville, KY, please call our office as soon as possible to make arrangements. Seating on the bus is limited, so we must have your child on the list in advance. Our bus will depart from First Presbyterian Church in Nashville (4815 Franklin Pk. Nashville, TN 37220) on the starting date for each session at 12 p.m. If you are attending camp with a youth group, contact your youth leader as other transportation arrangements have likely been made.

Pick-up: On the closing day of each camp week we have a wonderful Youth Productions in which students perform and share about their week. Please plan to attend if you are able. The production begins at 10 am at our camp facilities, so we recommend parents arrive around 9:30 am. Students are dismissed from camp at the close of Youth Productions around noon. Again, you can get directions to our facilities here. If your child will be returning on the bus, pick-up will be at the same location at First Presbyterian Church, promptly at 2 p.m. on closing day.

Please note: Camper registration will not be finalized until application is complete.
