2. Develop Christian discipleship qualities and address critical life issues.
3. Develop effective methods of communication and conflict resolution.
4. Improve literacy and life skills.
5. Participate in activities that promote health and wellness.

- Arts and crafts!
- Eating delicious food!
- Air-conditioned dormitories or motel-type rooms
- Three delicious meals and snacks every day.
Camp Dynamite is conducted at the Potomac Park Retreat and Conference Center in Falling Waters, West Virginia
(near Hagerstown, MD). We meet to depart from Anacostia Gospel Chapel, 1217 Alabama Ave SE, at 4:00 pm on Sunday and travel together on vans or buses to West Virginia. We return to the same location at approximately 7:00 pm on the following Friday.
The registration fee for one week of camp (Sunday evening through Friday) is $110 per camper. The cost for Angel Tree families is only $60 per camper due to a scholarship provided by Angel Tree. This includes round-trip transportation, 16 meals, daily snacks, lodging in air-conditioned rooms, and all activities. The actual cost to Camp Dynamite is $300 per camper. Because of generous individuals and organizations, we are able to offer the reduced rate.
A non-refundable $20 deposit will reserve your child’s space for camp. The balance is due no later than June 22 for Children’s Camp and July 20 for Youth Camp.
Payment for online registration may be made via credit card or CashApp ($CampDynamite).
