A retreat at camp provides your children with…

  • Time away from daily distractions to focus on building relationships with others and with God
  • Solid biblical instruction that speaks to them at their level
  • Trained, college-age counselors to mentor and role model a living, vibrant faith

Schedule: February 4-5, Thursday, 9 AM to Friday, 3 PM

Who’s Invited: Home-schooled or cyber-school students in grades 1 to 8. Join us for a unique adventure designed just for you. We pack interesting lessons on God and creation into 48 hours along with lots of great activities that you’ll find only at camp! This is a winter break time when you can lay the books aside and get into God’s creation!
