Stronghold is a year-round Conference, Retreat and Camping Center operated as a ministry of the Presbytery of Blackhawk, Presbyterian Church (USA). During the summer, Stronghold Summer Camps become the place where many friendships and memories are born. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing Christian experience for youth as a caring community in a natural environment. Stronghold Summer Camps offer youth opportunities to respond positively to the person and ministry of Jesus Christ, grow in their relationships with God and one another, and increase their understanding and appreciation for the world around them.

  Grand Camp - Grandparent(s) and children ages 5-12
  Start a new family tradition! Gather up the grandkids, give mom

  and dad a weekend to themselves, and come to Stronghold for

  GrandCamp. Summer staff provides the program, all meals are

  included and everyone stays in private rooms with bath.

  Inter-generational experiences provide time for stories and

  song, hiking and swimming as well as quality "one-on-one" time.

  Aduts participate in their own Bible study, discussion groups and

  private time, while grandchildren are engaged in Bible Story

  time, group games, nature study and art projects. Shared
