Overnight Summer Camp2021-06-25T10:30:38-04:00

Best Week Ever is an overnight, Christian summer camp in Dallas, PA.  As a leader in Christian camping since 1972, we love to test the limits of adventure and creativity to make incredible memories for campers and provide incredible value for parents.  We’re planning not just a good week or a great week, but your Best Week Ever!

FamJam ’21 – What does it mean to be part of God’s family?  It means you are loved, invited in and called children of the King.  It means you can stand confidently on His promises and look forward with hope that you will live with Him forever in perfect paradise.  Best Week Ever is an amazing experience, BECAUSE it’s a celebration of God’s children…His forever family.  Your week of camp is just a taste of the FamJam that’s coming!

1 John 3:1 “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”

You’re loved…you’re invited…join the Fam!

We believe it will be possible to run Best Week Ever Day and Overnight Camps for Summer 2021 and registration is open!  It will be our top priority to keep your camper safe and we intend to honor CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines.  We expect to receive new guidelines this spring and plan to publish a Health and Safety Plan by mid-May.  Previous versions of our Health and Safety Plan are still available on our COVID-19 Updates page.  You can read through them to understand the tone of our efforts throughout the year.

We want you to be able to register for Best Week Ever camp programs with confidence!  We will provide a full refund if an event needs to be cancelled due to COVID-19.  We will also provide a full refund if you are unable to attend your program based on illness, quarantine or changing comfort level based on COVID-19.  You would still have the opportunity for a refund after you review our Health and Safety Plan in May.
