Forces of Nature focuses on outdoor exploration and the nature that surrounds us. Campers learn about local wildlife and stewardship. They extend their gaze to the Heavens and study the stars. They use nature as a medium for craft projects and use experiments to learn more about God's creation.
Last year's campers went on a guided hike with a local East Texas nature expert, planted seeds in Gilmont's garden, made crafts out of nature, looked at the stars using telescopes, and slept in tents and hammocks one night under the stars.
In addition to the fun specialty camp activities, campers still enjoy classic Gilmont activities including canoeing, archery, games, disc golf, swimming, and more.
