Message regarding SBTWPenfield 2020 from our directors:
Unfortunately, after heavy deliberation and prayer, the Directors of SBTWPenfield and RCRC have decided that it is safest for everyone to not hold physical camp for the 2020 season.
We have always held the health and safety of our campers, their families, and our staff as our top priority and we will continue to do so, even when it means making tough decisions.
But wait, don't panic! We are excited to offer Virtual Camp this summer! Even though we are unable to meet in person, we can still be together online and create a Summer's Best experience at home. We will keep the same dates, July 20th through July 31st, and will follow a similar schedule to the typical camp day. As camp draws closer, we will share the daily schedules with you and explain how camp will go.
We will be relying heavily on our internet presence, so if you haven't already, please go follow our Facebook page at "Summer's Best Two Weeks (Penfield)" and our Instagram page, @sbtwpenfield.
If you are not on our email list and want to be please email Erin at email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support,
Dianka, Kristin, and Erin

Summer's Best Two Weeks has actually existed since 1966 and has ministered to thousands of young people over the past 50+ years! Today there is a SBTW residence camp in Pennsylvania and day camps throughout the Northeast.
Penfield Day Camp SBTW was started by Christy and Carol Mathewson in 2005. We have continued with the traditions and principles set in place by SBTW's day camp and the Mathewsons!
We are a faith based sports camp that offers a unique opportunity for young people to develop their personal character and athletic ability in the same context. Our core values:
We are committed to developing the whole person: socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually as a part of God's plan for abundant life.
We believe that excellence is not about being perfect, but instead, giving our absolute best effort in everything we do. This honors God and others in our lives.
We desire to see campers' faith developed in their understanding and practice of Christian values and their development of a Godly character.
We believe in creating a loving and accepting community where relationships can flourish, unity is developed, and positive role models are provided.
Our staff consists of handpicked high school and college leaders and a leadership team of summer employees whose job is to encourage, to coach, and to cultivate caring relationships with our campers. They are young Christians who strive in helping campers get to know Christ better and give Him the glory daily.
A Day at SBTW
Throughout the afternoon campers
will travel with their squad
mates to various stations including a time of Bible study and sports activities like Track & Field, Swimming, Soccer, Volleyball, Kickball, Basketball, Gymnastics, Wrestling, Tennis, Hockey, Crafts, Nature, Crazy Games, and much more!
The ultimate rivalry at SBTW is between the Romans and the Galatians. All campers are assigned to one of these two teams and compete in games like soccer, kickball, volleyball, archery and our very own angleball against those of their own age and gender on the other team. Competitions each day lead up to one winning team at the end of camp.
For those entering Kindergarten- entering 1st Grade we have added squad 0. It is a half-day of camp, filled with fun activities similar to the older squads!
