Summer Camp 2024 - Title

Summer Camp

July 29 - August 2

We are excited to announce that we are headed to Rock Springs this summer for an awesome week of camp!

Summer Camp is a week-long camp for both students going into grade 7-12. We take a couple hundred students and leaders to Rock Spring Retreat Center in Junction City, KS for a week of deep community and growing in our walk with Christ.

We also have lots of free time every day for students to enjoy the pool, horseback riding, archery, skeet shooting, high ropes course, mountain biking and all kinds of sports and activities. We also have friendly competitions throughout the week between grades.

We carve out time each day for students to “Be With” God on their own – to read their Bibles, pray, journal, etc. We have incredible worship and teaching each morning and evening. We believe this can truly be a life-changing experience, and we would love for every middle and high school student to come and experience the best week of their summer!

Camp dates: Monday, July 29th thru Friday, Aug. 2nd    -Students going into 7th-12th (Fall 2024)
