In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia Camper Application
Camp WAMAVA’s primary mission is spiritual. It exists to provide camping in a Christian environment and to glorify God.
Emphasis is also placed on the physical and emotional growth of the young people who attend the camp. A look at an
average day's activities serves to illustrate the balance that is sought to put the camping experience in the proper
perspective. Spiritual aspects of Camp WAMAVA are emphasized daily through Bible classes and devotionals. Physical
and emotional growth receives proper emphasis during periods of organized recreation and free time. Recreational
activities include large and small group games, supervised swimming, hiking and crafts. And to complete their physical
growth needs, campers enjoy three meals during the day and have snacks at “canteen” time.
The encampment director and his staff are under the direction of the Camp WAMAVA Board of Directors. All are
Christians committed to offering every child the broadest possible program instilling spiritual, physical and emotional
growth. Camp fees defray only a part of the expense of each camper attending the summer sessions. The remainder of
the money needed to operate the camp is provided by donations from generous Christians. These people who love the
children of the Washington metropolitan area believe that the camp provides a valuable physical and spiritual opportunity
for these young people.
