WINTER CAMP POSTER

When is it?

Expedition Winter Camp starts at 12:00pm on December 27th and ends at 12:00pm on December 30th. It will be a great time of fellowship, learning, growing, and having fun!


Who is it for?

Winter Camp is for those 7th grade and above as well as College Age and Adults who are interested in serving as staff. Most of the activites are designed for both teens and adults. Those adults who are serving as staff may bring younger children with them, but understand there are no activites for them (you are responsible for their supervision).


What does it cost?

$85 for Campers (7th Grade - High School). $65 for staff (and $30 for accompanying pre-campers). If you never have served as staff before, please contact Cliff before registering......Yes, it really is that affordable!!!


What Do I need to Bring

  • Appropriate Winter clothing for four days. Winter bedding (campers will be in cabins with heaters and sleeping on bunks – don’t rely on the heaters to keep you warm!)
  • Toiletries (yes, we expect you to take showers).  A Bible, notebook, pen and a great attitude.
  • We prefer you NOT to have a cellphone at camp. They are only to be used to take pictures, and for Bible Study. No texting or internet access allowed. Winter Camp is NOT for sitting by yourself playing a game on your phone, online or listening to music with earbuds in. Camp is a time to connect to others in person….not online. 
  • Bring anything (within reason) you want to use for skits at the nightly campfires! You may also bring any games or outdoor equipment you would want to use. (Possibly a sled if it snows). Obviously don’t bring anything that would get you sent home immediately from camp, like weapons, anything inappropriate, cigarettes, alcohol or drugs (all medication is to be turned into the Nurse at registration). 
  • Money to purchase snack shack cards if you did not prepay (lots of goodies available for purchase).
