Boys & Girls in Grades 9-12 | December 28-31, 2016
Camp Susque's Freeze is a co-ed winter camp that runs four days and three nights in late December. Freeze is intentionally designed for 9th-12th graders, and gives this age group a chance to share, hang out, and relax while experiencing Susque in the winter.
Well-screened, trained counselors guide campers in small group discussions, community life in the lodges, and games and activities. More than that, counselors provide an opportunity for the high-school age campers to discuss life questions with them and receive advice and encouragement. Many of our Freeze campers enjoy spending time with friends new and old while hiking the wintry mountains, playing board games, and enjoying the scrumptious Susque food. If the weather permits, campers take part in ice skating on the pond and testing their sledding skills on our Tube Chute. In addition to the regular Winter Camp activities, each Freeze is complemented by a special theme night, complete with unique activities and a lavish, special theme meal. And, of course, every Freeze camper loves hanging out by the roaring dining hall fireplace and sipping on a mug of our endless hot chocolate!
The goal of Freeze is to provide high-school age campers respite and refreshment during the winter break. To this end, a carefully chosen Chaplain will present thought-provoking sermons geared towards helping the campers navigate their way in the complex world. Campers also will have the opportunity to spend time together in corporate worship and discuss their thoughts from chapel in their family groups. One of the key features of Freeze is something we call "Staff Stumpers." This intentional, popular evening activity affords campers the opportunity to anonymously ask any question of our staff. While the full gamut of silly questions is asked, many, many serious discussions have ensured during this thought-provoking time.
