Formerly known as "Sick and Twisted", This camp gets its name from the unusual games and exercises the campers can experience. While no campers must participate, even the most squeamish seldom find themselves to be apart of the fun. All of this fun is smashed together with times of deep spiritual thought, worships, and discussion.
