Sojourners (Grades 9-11)

Authentic Friendships and Unique Experiences!

We hand-pick high-quality college students to come alongside high school students, providing our oldest campers with unique experiences and an opportunity to build life-long friendships. While engaging in intense, one-of-a-kind activities, your child will be will challenged to develop grit and understand that growing towards our God-given potential involves moving beyond what we see as comfortable.

High Ropes Adventure Park, Paintball, Laser Tag, Climbing Tower and Zip Line, Wet Bubble, Mountain Biking, Lighthouse Point and more…all of these thrilling outdoor activities provide the backdrop for the real-life transformation that needs to occur as our kids emerge into the next generation of leaders for the Church.

When teenagers are given the opportunity to break-away from the hectic routines of life and given the opportunity to wrestle with faith questions in a nurturing environment, they will begin to identify how God is active in their own lives and consider how their individual spiritual gifts can serve the kingdom of God.

“What a great opportunity for my kids to develop Christ-centered leadership skills surrounded by others that have Christ at the center of their lives.” – Camper Parent
