A Word from Zach

Zach Salazar

Speaker: Zach Salazar

Zach is the Youth Pastor at The Meeting House Carlisle. Together, his wife, Melissa, and he created two of the coolest human beings, Diego and Cortez. Zach is an avid player of strategic board games. If there are not at least ten pages of rules, the game is not worth playing. He enjoys playing guitar, drinking coffee, reading, eating Mexican food (he just calls it food), and watching movies. Want to be friends with Zach? Bring him a taco.


Our cabins have bunk beds and sleep 12. They have their own bathroom with 3 shower stalls, 2 toilet stalls and a large double sink. Lodge rooms are available on a limited first-come, first-served basis for an additional cost of $50.00.

Your Bible, notebook, pen or pencil, pillow, sleeping bag, enough clean clothes for the weekend, bathroom necessities and money for the camp store/canteen and friends to share the weekend with.
