Kick off your youth group season, reunite with camp friends and meet new ones! Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity to squeeze in some more summer fun this September!
 
Note: Information/forms are best viewed on a computer (not mobile version).
Note: Rain options will be planned and announced as needed.
 

There are 2 important STEPS you need to do to join the fun!

  • 1) fill out online registration form – Scroll to the bottom of this page to get to the REGISTRATION FORM. Everyone must register so we can plan accordingly. It will include some permission/waiver forms so if you are under the age of 18, you will need some parental/guardian to sign off on that part.  
  • 2) read the info below so you know all the deets on time, schedule, to bring, expectations, etc.
WHO CAN ATTEND
Highschool Youth and Young Adults
 
* We encourage you to come with your youth group/youth group leaders; but we will provide basic supervision for individual attendees as well.
* Parents/Individual participants – please note that while we are providing general supervision for this event, we don’t have official counsellors/leaders like in a camp setting. We are also expecting youth who come on their own to be ready to submit to leadership and guidelines of the weekend. If not we will have to ask them to leave. And we don’t want that.  So come all, be respectful, be chill, and all will be fantastic!
