Youth Leaders Discussion Session - We recognize the huge responsibility it is to bring a group of young people to an outdoor, overnight event - plus the nurturing and guidance you provide your kids all year long.  Join us Friday at 3:30 pm for a one-hour session designed by youth leaders for youth leaders.

Icebreakers, Games and Activities – While the youth leaders are having their discussion session, the kids are getting together for an awesome time of fellowship and FUN.  Meet someone NEW, play some games, laugh out loud and make some friends.  Join us for this hugely popular activity, Friday at 3:30 pm.

Ocean Baptisms -  Each year we are amazed by the number of people who participate in this beautiful ceremony.  Baptisms are held Friday after the morning program. A baptism certificate is provided to each participant by the officiating pastor.
