Poiema is a program designed specifically for participants over the age of 16 who are seeking to have an opportunity to grow spiritually while playing an integral role of service to summer camp at Camp of the Hills. Poiema will be two weeks long and provide a unique and enriching opportunity for students to learn and grow through serving others, intensive study, and hard work in regards to both.

This is an opportunity to be challenged and grow through study, application, community, accountability, and service.

Participants will be immersed in a spirit-filled community and challenged to learn and grow. While participating in Poiema, students will turn in their cell phones so that they can be focused and rejuvenated by their time here at Camp of the Hills.

During the Poiema program you will get to play a vital role in the functioning of camp while diving deep into study designed specifically for you and your time at camp. In serving the camp you will participate in a variety of activities and jobs, this can be anything like helping take out the trash, assisting with special interest classes, doing special work projects, and generally helping keep camp running smoothly. There will be counselors to assist and guide you in these tasks. When you aren’t participating in service and work projects, there will be specific and meaningful time set aside and planned for you to be able to study and be discipled by each other and the program counselors. This will be a time to go deeper into scripture, be challenged, and study life with Christ. During the weekend and some time throughout the week, you will get to be a part of activities and adventures with each other and your counselors.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

-Ephesians 2:10
