Adventure For The City

From our neck of the woods to yours.

City Camp partners with churches in select cities to offer a one-week program for first through sixth graders to experience a taste of everything Glorieta has to offer. It’s all the fun of adventure camp, brought to the city!

Exciting outdoor adventures, right in your city.

Can’t get to camp? We’ll bring camp to you. We’ve taken all the adventure and impact of Glorieta , stuffed it all in a truck or two, and and hit the road to bring our super fun camp experience to kids in urban areas. We partner with churches across the nation to deliver a week-long, fun-filled, Christ-centered, day camp experience specifically designed for kids and supervised by the world’s most energetic counselors.

From rock climbing and archery tag, to soaking-wet water activities; they’ll worship with friends, explore God’s unchanging Word and learn what it means to be a kid who follows Christ. It’s right in your own backyard and jam-packed with adventure activities and opportunities to learn. Kids will look forward to it every summer.

Drift Trikes

Fuzzy wristbands, Keds, and sliding sideways on a Big Wheel made for some serious street cred back in the day. Well, we've amped it up.

Bike Park

Okay, time to break out those tricks you spent hours on in the driveway. Bunny hop? Check. Wheelie? Yup. Bust out a few moves, and ride to glory.

Arrow TAG

We are hunters, and adventure is our game. We are unstoppable, and you are our prey. Take aim and bring 'em down. Before they get you!

Games of Skill... Or Not.

It doesn't matter if you are "super coordinated" or not; you'll still have massive fun in our crazy games. A good time will be had by all... or else!

Waterslide

We know more than a couple tricks to help cool you down on a summer afternoon. You'll slip and slide in a variety of activities amidst a lot of screaming.

Field Games

Guaranteed to break the ice. This is camp-olympics! From scavenger hunts to more inventive contests, you're sure to make a few new friends along the way.

Arts & Crafts

You'll leave with tan lines from all the beaded bracelets you've made and traded with your new besties. Get ready for paint under your nails and a bunch of souvenirs.

Ga-Ga Ball

Ga-ga wha? Trust us, it's not for babies. Part dodge ball, part tag and part king of the hill, it takes action to another level. Stay with it. Rule the octagon!

Dodgeball

There's nothing like the unmistakable tread of a new red dodgeball. It provides good grip. And a recognizable pattern on the side of your face. Respect the ball!

Obstacle Course

There's no easing into this, so jump right in! From there, you're climbing through our bouncy crash course. You'll love ducking, diving, and dodging to the end.

Extreme Bouncer

Are your seats and tray tables in their upright positions? Prepare for takeoff as our incredible jumper takes you soaring 25 feet in the air. Touch the sky!

Rock Climbing Wall

One look at the kaleidoscopic wall and you'll think it’s easy. But it's like Crossfit for spider monkeys. It takes balance, footwork, and strategy in every move.

Inflatables

We're not just full of hot air when we say, "If it inflates, it's great!" Bounce through our collection of endless obstacles and feel your excitement balloon.

2018 SUMMER FOCUS

Sunk in sin, salvaged by Jesus.

A thematic journey designed to push teens toward putting their identity fully in Christ.

Four campers led to Christ

"This week I have been with our traveling Adventure for the City Camp.  Today, my co-lead and I led four of our campers to Christ. For the first time in my life, I have never experienced something more beautiful than those girls asking Jesus to come into their hearts....
