Something Bigger Than Yourself
In the dawn of a new day on the slopes of Lavender Mountain, the way of the WinShape Wilds has fallen upon this sacred ground. Where Packs roam and shape the land we look to learn and lead like the wildlife the Lord has provided.
Divided up by completed grades, each Pack has its own unique identity and forges its own trail with a new group of campers each summer. Out of this Pack will come friendships, memories, and lifelong lessons built through the bonds of brotherhood. Each Pack has its own colors, signs, and chants that your camper will know like the back of their hand by the end of camp.

Completed 10th-11th Grade Campers Adventure Program
The Adventure Program (Elk Pack) is offered at our Mount Berry Campus to campers who like to spend most of their time outdoors and have completed 10th and 11th grade. These campers are out of camp the majority of the session, except for the middle weekend and the last few days of the session. The Elk Adventure Program is offered all four Sessions. Campers can look forward to participating in fun and rigorous outdoor activities, such as backpacking, whitewater rafting, canoeing, rock climbing, repelling, caving, and camping. Campers will sleep in tents, cook over a campfire, filter their own water, and will not have access to restrooms/showers while on the trails. If they prefer, campers have the option to bring a hammock to sleep in. Campers interested in this program should be in good health and have the ability to participate in these physically demanding activities. While offsite, campers will carry a backpack between 35 to 45 pounds while hiking up to 2 miles daily. The weight range of the backpack will depend on what each camper packs and a portion of group supplies that each camper will help carry such as food and general camping supplies. Additionally, the Elk Pack will canoe for 5 miles one day and for 13 miles another day. WinShape Camps has the right to decline a camper for the Adventure Program if they are unable to meet the physical requirements associated with this program. However, campers of this age group could register for the Grizzly Pack at Mount Berry.
