Field Trips

Branch Adventure Camps typically have one trip or special activity per week. Participation is required for all in attendance. Buses depart around 9:30AM and return between 2:30PM and 3PM on field trip days. Times may vary.


IGNITE is what we call our morning meetings and announcements held daily, it is a great celebration of friendship and togetherness to kick off the day!
