If your child is planning a future trip to SharpTop or is here right now, we want you to have the information you need to rest easy while he or she is away. There are many activities at camp in which your child may be participating. Whether they are challenged on the ropes course, playing on the waterfront or spending time in the game room, their safety is our top concern.

What to Bring (Summer Season):

  • Hangout at camp clothes
  • Bathing suit and pool towel
  • At least one pair long pants for some activities
  • Close-toed shoes for some activities
  • Messy outfit
  • Rain jacket
  • Sweatshirt for cold evenings
  • Sunscreen
  • Toiletries
  • Medications
  • Water bottle
  • Camera (not a phone)
  • Spending money for store and snack bar


Young Life and SharpTop Cove maintain the highest level of safety standards in operation of all our activities at camp.

All of SharpTop Cove's challenge course elements (ropes course, climbing tower, giant swing) are inspected annually by a registered Preferred Vendor Member of The Association of Challenge Course Technology. All elements are operated and supervised by our staff who have been fully trained and certified to do so, ensuring your child's comfort and safety.

SharpTop's waterfront program is facilitated by trained and experienced lifeguards. Your child will be in good hands while at SharpTop Cove.

In the event of an unexpected accident, there is always a qualified medical professional on call to tend to your child's needs. If needed, the local hospital is only a short drive away.


We welcome kids of every ability at SharpTop Cove. All of our main buildings are accessible to strollers or wheelchairs, and we have a handful of cabins that are designed to be accessible (special housing needs may be requested by your child's trip leader).

Walkways around camp are paved. We will also do our best to help every guest participate in activities. We want every kid to have the best week of their life as they come to camp!

Sign Up for Camp

For summer and weekend camps, all spots are given out to individual Young Life areas and retreat groups. These areas and groups fill their allocated spots with students from their local town. If you are interested in attending camp or finding out how to send your child to Young Life camp, contact your local Young Life office. They might not be attending camp at SharpTop, but they most likely have a trip planned to one of Young Life's other fabulous properties!
