Summer Camp is a Ministry of the Presbytery’s Education & Training Team
Summer Camp is a terrific way for children, youth and adults to unplug from hectic schedules, to embrace God’s good creation in nature and to participate in experiences designed to enhance relationships with God, peers, and other Christian adults.
We hold camps for families, children, and youth. All of our volunteers have participated in Stewards of Children Darkness to Light sexual abuse prevention training and national background checks.
We are excited to announce that Summer Camp 2021 will return to the traditional third week of June (21st-25th) at New Ebenezer Retreat Center in Rincon, Georgia.
Jean Breitenhirt Scholarship Fund
A limited number of scholarships for Savannah Presbytery’s summer offerings are provided through the Jean Breitenhirt Memorial Scholarship Fund. For many years Jean served Savannah Presbytery and its children with love and grace as she coordinated the summer camp ministry. Her love and devotion to young people is still felt today.

Youth Resident Camp RESIDENT CAMPS
Rising 7th graders – graduated 12th grade
Youth camp is a high energy mix of fun, fellowship, and friendship as campers share meals, enjoy the outdoors, play, learn, and worship together. This year we will spend time in camp, have a mission activity at America’s Second Harvest in Savannah, and canoe on a creek near Ebenezer.
Elementary Resident Camp
Rising 3rd & 6th graders
Elementary campers get to enjoy a wide variety of camping fun. We start each day with morning prayer, then hit the ground running! At camp, we have Bible study, art-n-crafts, a talent show, and dance. We swim, hike, canoe, play games, and fish. At night we have special activities like a campfire and crazy Olympics.
Rising 2nd graders and younger with an adult family member
Learn about all the fun that can be had at Savannah Presbytery Summer Camp. Children enjoy sleeping in bunk beds, Bible study, crafts, outdoor recreation, swimming in the pool, and sharing meals in the dining hall. A campfire, complete with s’mores and songs, is a memorable experience.
