Pier 30 is our most uniquely programmed overnight camp. It follows a traditional camp format with plenty of Covenant Harbor twists. Along with their time in exciting sessions, meals, and big games, all these campers get a small cabin experience with a few other campers and one or two of our excellent counselors.

Pier 30 (Grades 4-6)

The Pier 30 (Grades 4-6) camps introduce campers to the week of camp experience. All the tried and true camp favorites like swimming, banana boating, high ropes, rock climbing, double tubing, skate park, and arts and crafts are on the schedule along with many more incredible activities (some invented specifically for this summer!). There will be no shortage of big games, dynamic biblical teaching in exciting sessions, and a whole lot of great hang-out time.

There are two special weeks of Pier 30 that will be a 3-night experience. This week is ideal for first time campers who want to get a smaller taste of what camp is. 

Pier 30 (Grades 7-9)

The Pier 30 (Grades 7-9) full week camps include all the camp favorites: lake activities (like tubing), adventure activities (like high ropes), camp classics (like arts and crafts), and many new activities invented specifically for this summer! Of course, we’ll also have big games, dynamic biblical teaching in exciting sessions, and great hang-out time.

In addition to all that, 7th-9th grade campers get the chance to customize their camp experience with our Skills program. During registration, each camper gets to select a Skill on which to spend focused time, each day, with a trained instructor. We have a wide array of Skill options ranging from purely recreational to focused instruction.

Pier 30 (Grades 9-13)

The Pier 30 (Grades 9-13) is a new program for high school students looking to continue the classic camp experience. This week will include all the fun camp activities, games, and group sessions, but will be uniquely programmed for these older students.

Learn more about our age-appropriate programming in the sections below.

Prior to Camp

What to Bring

Campers should have a range of clothes for any weather. Clothing should allow campers to be active. Include closed-toe shoes for activities and water shoes for swimming. Modest swimsuits are required. Click to see what to bring to Pier 30!

Spending Money

Prior to camp (recommended) and at check-in you will have the opportunity to deposit money in your camper’s spending money account. This money will allow them to purchase things during free time at our camp stores without having to keep track of any cash. There is candy, snacks, soda, water and Gatorade ranging from $.25 to $2.00. Pier 30 (Grades 4-10) campers are limited to $2.00 per day on candy or soda and $2.00 per day on whole grain snacks or fruit. Water and Gatorade are not limited. They can also purchase camp merchandise ranging from $.25 to $45.00 from the store. Campers also have an opportunity to donate a portion of their spending money (between $0-$5.00) to our mission project.

In addition to the store, spending money deposited in a camper’s account will be used for certain activity charges.  Every camper is provided the opportunity for one boat ride during the week free of charge, but there will be the opportunity for campers to sign up for an additional ride during free time. This second ride will cost campers $4.00 deducted from their spending money account. Similarly, if a camper wishes to take part in more than one high ropes/climbing activity, also offered during free time, these second opportunities will also deduct $4.00 from their spending account.

What NOT to Bring

Do not bring cell phones or any pets, electronic devices (including CD players, game systems, and iPods), personal sports equipment, firearms, weapons of any kind, fireworks, tobacco, alcohol or drugs.

Campers will have one opportunity to turn in their cell phones on the first night of camp. Any cell phones discovered after that point may result in immediate dismissal from the camp program.

***Please note that peanuts/tree nuts or peanuts/tree-nut products are not allowed.

Cabin Requests

It is great to invite your friends to come to camp with you, and we want to make it possible for your camper to be in a cabin with his/her friends. There is a spot on the registration form (Cabin mate Requests), where you can list the names of up to two other people your camper would like to be housed with. Cabin mates must request one another. Due to the size of our cabins and our desire to form a healthy cabin community, we will not put more than three campers together in one cabin.  If your group is larger than three, campers will be separated in different cabins.

Arrival Information

Check-in

For reasons of safety and security, specific information regarding arrival and departure is sent directly via email to registered campers only. Please call our office with any questions. Our staff does not assume responsibility for campers until the conclusion of the parent welcome and kickoff following check-in.

Late drop-off/early pick-up

Late arrival or early pick-up is not recommended and should be considered only in extreme circumstances. If you must arrive late for any reason please call our office in advance so we may prepare for your arrival. Early pick up can be arranged at check-in. We will not allow a camper to be picked up and dropped off more than once during the camp week because of the negative impact it has on your camper and other campers.

Directions

A variety of routes make Covenant Harbor accessible from any surrounding area. Our address is 1724 W Main St.,  Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. See our Map and Directions page for detailed arrival instructions.
