Family Camp

Mark your Calendars

May 8-10, 2015

Registration Available Soon.

We are looking forward to having you join us for a great weekend at camp May 9th-11th. Our goal for the weekend is for families to enjoy quality time together in a fun, relaxing environment with others who are seeking the same experience. It is a laid back atmosphere. Meaning that you are welcome to join into any activities you like and also are welcome to take time to relax. If there is an activity that you are interested in doing be sure to ask. We do our best to meet your needs.

When you arrive on Friday evening you will check in at the Welcome Center. It is located at the bottom of the hill as you pull into camp. You will find out what cabin you are in and take care of any payments.

Our cabins are very simple, nice but simple. Make sure you bring bedding. You are also welcome to bring lawn chairs, games and other items that will make the stay more comfortable. The cabins have outlets and are air-conditioned. The restrooms/showers are attached to the cabin. There is hand soap at the sink but you need to bring all other toiletries and towels.

We will continue activities rain or shine so be sure to check the weather and dress appropriate for the weekend. We will stop/change activities if there is severe weather. We will provide different options and if we need to move inside we will use our gymnasium.

Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs for the weekend. We eat as a group/family style at camp. It is part of our culture and is a great time to have a conversation with other families. It is family friendly food. We work to meet the needs of the audience for the weekend.

We hope you have a great time and we are here to help achieve that so let us know what we can do to serve your family.

We will see you soon!
