Student Camp July 8th - 12th

Durango, Colorado


“Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.” – Isaiah 42:9

God is the great redefiner. At the heart of what it means to know and experience God is the process of redefinition. God defines what it means to be new. God spoke a new creation into existence out of nothing, redefining our existence. Through the person and work of Christ, God made complete renewal possible for all who would come to faith in Him, redefining our reality. In the salvation offered by God, we discover a new identity, redefining who we are. And in discovering who God meant for us to always be, our purpose is redefined.

Join us in 2019 as we journey through Redefined.

Durango, CO

Fort Lewis College is simply one of the most beautiful places to do camp. Located in southwestern Colorado, Fort Lewis is situated at 6,872 feet, overlooking the Animas River Valley and historic downtown Durango. There is no shortage of breathtaking views, and hiking trails are steps away.

Mystery Dinner Fundraiser

We know camp can seem expensive and we want to help you raise money. Our Mystery Dinner fundraiser has the ability to help your student raise hundreds of dollars. Students can still sign up to help as a server or to help with childcare. Sign your student up at a Parents Meeting.


We want to get all the information for camp and any questions you may have answered. Please attend one of two Parents’ Meeting. We will cover all the important information, had out all required registration forms, and answer any question you may have.

Sundays at 12:30pm in the
Student Worship Center

If you have any questions before the Parents’ Meetings, please email us at [email protected].
