Refuge Summer Camp (6th-12th grade)

June 18th - June 22nd, 2018

$0 - $350

Join us for our annual Summer Camp! This summer we will be traveling to Running Springs, CA to attend Camp Pondo from June 18th - June 22nd.

Camp Pondo:

Speakers at Ponderosa Pines all have one thing in common—they are committed to the teaching of the scriptures in relevant, uncompromising ways. Each one will share from their heart, their experiences, and from God's Word in ways that will be life-changing for your students.

And worship is at the heart of what we do at Ponderosa Pines. It's the bow on the package so to speak. It's not a warm up for the messages but rather a significant way to respond to what God has said through His Word. Most of the worship actually occurs after the message so that students have the opportunity to process and respond to the message.

At Camp Pondo, we have a high value that the camp experience should include activities that kids don't have the opportunity to participate in on a daily basis. Not many homes have a 100' water slide, a screaming zip line, or a skate park. Camp is in a unique position to offer exciting experiences in a safe environment. We also believe that kids shouldn't be nickled and dimed when they want to participate in a free time activity. So, we don't upcharge for activities whether it be crafts created in the Arts Garage, a ride on the Giant Swing, or an excursion on a Mountain Bike. All onsite activities are FREE! There is an extra charge for offsite activities such as wakeboarding.

What's Available:
• Giant Water Slide
• Bouldering Room
• Zip Line
• Tree Climbing
• Giant Swing
• Mountain Biking
• Rec Room
• Disc Golf
• Arts and Crafts
• Hiking
• Beach Volleyball
• 9 Square in the Air
• Swimming Pool
• Skate Park

We invite your kids to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drum line, our players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook.
