girls in snow tb retreat-1Come Learn About God And Have Some Winter Fun at Camp!

This winter retreat is designed for students grades 3-6. We make sure it’s full of fun stuff to do and exciting things to learn. Campers and leaders will both go home physically exhausted, but spiritually rejuvenated.

One of our goals for the retreat is to give children’s pastors and church leaders an opportunity to bond with the youth of their church. You folks work hard all year to pour into the students at your church. We want this to be a weekend where you leaders can simply enjoy being around your students! We’ve taken care of all the details so all you have to worry about is being there for these kids! Activities will include:

All of camp’s winter fun • snow tubing, skiing, snow shoeing, broomball, snowman making, snowball fights • Chapel services • Warm fires • Delicious food  • New Friends  • Hot Chocolate

Watch this 1.5 min video to get a better idea of what happens at the Trailblazer Camp.
