Our mission is to create an experience that you can’t get in the cul-de-sac. Camp Kerusso adventures involve a broad range of activities, including archery, laser tag, gaga ball, fishing, mini golf, blob, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking...and more! It is our goal to create a safe environment where adventure, sports, and recreation facilitate lifelong friendships and an opportunity for kids to discover what it means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Camp Kerusso is found on 55 acres of land right on Lake Lanier, located just 3 miles off GA-400.

All cancellation/change requests must be made in writing (via letter or email only).
At registration, all campers are charged a one-time, non-refundable $25 registration fee (included in deposit) per week registered. This fee covers the registration processing and transaction fees and all administrative costs associated with registration. This is an assumed risk and will not be refunded for any reason.
Through March 31st, all cancellations are covered by the $25 registration fee (included in registration deposit).
Beginning April 1st, each registration cancellation will result in the complete loss of your deposit ($79). We will waive this fee if you transfer your camper's registration to another available week not previously registered for.
Please remember any outstanding balances and forms are due 14 days before the start of your week of Camp Kerusso. If we have not received full payment at that time, your registration will be canceled and no refund will be issued. We will send out a balance due reminder email. Note, you will NOT be auto billed, you must submit payment.
We will not be able to issue refunds or transfer registration to another week within 14 days of the scheduled camp date except in documented cases of camper illness, injury, or a death in the immediate family. If you decide to cancel within 14 days of camp, we will retain the entire $210.
*If for some reason camp were canceled due to COVID-19 or a similar emergency, you will be refunded your entire camp fee minus the $25 registration fee per week registered. If cancellation occurred mid-week, the refunded camp fee would be prorated appropriately.
All lead counselors are High School aged or older, have multiple references checked, attended one-on-one interviews, and many hours of intense training! Our staff love your campers and will give your child an incredible camp experience!

- Five full days of adventure and activities
- One T-Shirt per camper for each 2 weeks of camp (maximum of 2 T-shirts per summer)

Campers should come ready to play hard, have fun, and get dirty! We require closed-toe shoes (no Chacos or heelys, please), a modest swimming suit (one piece or tankini), and appropriate t-shirts. Each day campers will need to bring sunscreen, a refillable water bottle, and lunch (except Friday). While lifejackets are provided, we HIGHLY encourage your camper to bring their own. Make sure that your campers name is on everything he/she brings to camp.
NO ELECTRONICS ALLOWED. Our goal is to help campers unplug, if we see cell phones, tablets, etc... your camper will be asked to put it away. Camp Kerusso is not responsible for any lost or damaged property.
SUMMER 2021 UPDATE: Unfortunately there will be NO shared food items this summer, which means NO Pizza Friday. Instead, tuition will include a $2 canteen credit. Campers will bring their lunch packed in an insulated lunch box with an ice pack for ALL days of camp, Monday - Friday. Campers should have a refillable water bottle every day.

You can scan or email pictures of the form. No paper copies will be accepted on arrival at camp. All forms are due 14 days prior to your registered camp date.
