Winter Camp is a weekend retreat for those in grades 7 – 12, held over Presidents Day weekend in February. We average about 150 campers at Winter Camp each year! Campers arrive on Friday night and leave on Monday, as most schools are closed on Monday for the holiday. Borrowing some of your favorite activities from the summer, Winter Camp includes: Christian Ed with multiple speakers, Afternoon Program, Evening program, and much more! Winter Camp also provides a chance to meet other campers from different regions and different sessions from the summer!
For Winter Camp, our campers will stay in our recently constructed heated log cabins. All meals, services, and activities are held at the Camp. Cost is $150.
