Youth Programs

Come to camp and take a break from everyday life!

Camp gives youth time away to experience fun adventures and discover new things. It’s a safe place where youth can be themselves, find acceptance, and experience healthy friendships with caring adults and other youth. And where they hear the message of God’s love for them. Located in a beautiful natural setting overlooking Port Susan Bay in Stanwood, WA.

Kids enjoy an amazing week in the beauty of God’s creation. Camp staff create a memorable time filled with fun and teachable moments along the way.
Campers experience God through outdoor adventures and activities, positive peer and camp staff relationships, and time exploring God's Word!
