Upward Bound is our week-long overnight camp for older elementary students—a First Pres and Camp Elim tradition for close to 30 years! This camp will take kids deeper into the transformational experience of living for Christ. Campers will have the opportunity to connect with friends in cabin groups, adult counselors, and their Creator God through relevant Bible studies and camp fire talks. Upward Bound provides a safe and comfortable environment for campers away from home.
