Family Camp

St. John's Family Camp
June 23-29, 2019

Family Camp is designed to strengthen relationships within our community of faith by providing a relaxed, fun-filled opportunity for families to be together in an atmosphere dedicated to Christ.

The group will spend time together participating in activities, eating meals together, communicating with each other through activities and sharing in daily Bible study. And of course, FUN is always on the agenda!

Beginning on Sunday after church and concluding after breakfast on the following Saturday, the camp provides structured activities as well as plenty of downtime to spend with your family and church family, all with wonderful moments of learning and inspiration along the way.

Our Camp Activities

  • Each morning after breakfast, the camp enjoys a period of worship before separating into discussion groups to engage adults and children separately, after which there are optional activities around camp for all ages.  The afternoon is free for loafing at the river bank, playing games, fishing, hiking, or trips to the nearby quarry where the brave can take the plunge in the clear cold water.
  • In the evenings after dinner there is a brief campfire program, popcorn and s’mores, and optional game time afterward. 
  • Wednesday is a free day for trips into nearby towns free time, and rest.

Accommodations

Families camp in their own tents and RV’s in campsites.  There are also shared bunk accommodations in the lodge.  There are shared restrooms and hot showers available in the lodge.  Not a camper?  Families without tents of their own can request to borrow a tent and the committee will find a way to match up tents with campers.

Meals

We have an apron ready for you!  Meals are prepared communally, with each adult taking a turn in the kitchen.   Youth and children help to clean up after each meal.   Meals are hearty and delicious, and are enjoyed in both indoor and outdoor seating areas.

On the last evening, the group enjoys a delicious steak, with meat grilled outdoors and all of the fixings.

Transportation

Families are responsible for their own transportation, however, those who need a ride are encouraged to indicate that on their registration form.
