As 2017 Comes to a Close...

We are reflective and excited for the coming months. We are expecting and planning for new or revitalized things to happen at camp in 2018. First of all we are so excited to be celebrating our 30th Anniversary on December 7th! merry-christmas-2953721.jpgAs we celebrate the anniversary, we decided that we wanted to launch the 2018 camp list and registration early! On December 7th at Noon MST we will be launching the 2018 camp registration! This gives you the opportunity to purchase camps as Christmas presents, take advantage of the Early Bird pricing (until January 15th), and plan further in advance what your summer will look like! The classic 8-9 camp and 10-12 camp are back but revitalized with a plan to reach further into the wilderness with more out trips. There are a few camps that have been added or reintroduced including the fishing adventure. We are excited to offer Winter Family Days again this year, be sure to check out the website for details.

Take the time to invite your friends or your kids friends, take the time to like us and share us on Facebook so we can reach even more campers and families for the Glory of God.

The family cabin project is still in progress with the roof and tin on. The inside framing is done. Electrical is started. We have all the windows onsite. What we need is help putting the siding on and we could use some scaffolding if anyone has any. The windows and doors also need to be installed.
