Camp Emmanuel offers two, one-week sessions each summer: one Junior Session and one Senior Session. The Junior session is for young people ages 11-14 years, and the Senior Session for ages 15-18 years.
Junior Session campers must turn eleven years old prior to October 1, 2019. Likewise, fourteen-year-old campers who will be fifteen years of age prior to October 1, 2019, are considered eligible to participate in the Senior session of Camp Emmanuel.
