2023 Family Camp Information Coming Soon!


Experience Life-Changing Fun with Your Family! 


Family Camp is a weekend of fun and bonding with your entire family! Our goal is that when you leave family camp, you’ve grown closer to both God and your family!  It’s a no stress vacation – so, everything is optional. You can choose to participate in our many fun activities or just hang out and rest.  Think of it as a rustic all-inclusive vacation that you can focus on relaxing and having fun!  


Each day, parents and kids separate for a time of worship and Bible study.  The adults dig a little deeper while camp staff members engage the kids and teens in activities. There is also family time where families move together experiencing fun camp activities-- swimming, fishing, boating, rock wall, archery, horseback riding, Frisbee golf, crafts, zip line and more!  Nights are reserved for dates for the parents and fun for the kids. Of course, there’s also a big fun family event night on the calendar, so coming up with a family team theme and gear is part of anticipating the fun! 


Every little detail of your weekend is taken care of by our incredible staff. From prepared meals (meaning you won’t have to cook!), to our engaging activities. At family camp, you’ll find it’s just as easy to grow your faith as it is to have fun—all while getting to actually enjoy each other. Come experience camp, unplug and play as a family…we’ll take care of the cooking, cleaning, and the rest!


Limited space is available, so Register Online Today!
