Church Camp 2021

AUGUST 11-14, 2021 (Wednesday-Saturday)

“Church camp is a great time to meet new people in a relaxed venue, enjoy a great outdoor atmosphere with lots to do, and have a meaningful encounter with God along with your church family. Join us this summer!”

Camp Pastor, Aubrey Krahn

What to Expect

Each day at camp has lots of free time and outdoor/indoor recreation options for all ages, plus a service with worship, ministry time and preaching from our guest speaker. We expect to be both refreshed and challenged as we respond to what God is doing in our hearts.

Come ready to meet new people and reconnect with old friends!

NOTE: We will be following whatever public health protocols are in place at the time of camp. This may affect things like group sizes, common cooking areas, and the ability to have persons from multiple households staying together.

update July 30, 2021

Hi Church Campers,

We received some great news that we couldn’t wait to share with you!

Shared Kitchens – the public health inspector has approved our plan to open the shared kitchen areas to the guests staying in the Poolside and Chapel Grove motels. Two families at a time will be able to use the kitchen with a few extra requirements in place.

We’ll have a sign-up schedule in the motel to ensure those guests are able to access the kitchen. You will need to bring your own cooking/eating supplies (pots, pans, knives, cutting board, utensils, plates, etc.) as they cannot be shared among households.

Dining Hall – you will not need to register as a restaurant guest if take your meal outdoors. That is now considered take-out instead of eating on an outdoor patio. We are also working on some options to make it simpler to track those eating indoors.

For clarification – people staying in the same accommodation at camp are considered a household and can eat together at the Dining Hall. Your camp accommodation will be considered your vacation address while you are staying there.

13 days and counting to Church Camp, see you soon!
