2018: Spiritual theme “Impossible Mission (w/out God)”
We’re looking forward to diving into God’s Word and discovering that what may seem impossible to us, isn’t at all when you have the God of the universe on your side! The purpose of this retreat is to give our campers a spiritually uplifting break in their routine and point them to the message of the cross, all while having a ton of fun with counselors and friends.
Cost & Policies
75 per person-includes snacks, 5 meals, two-night stay & all programming. Registration requires payment in full. Cancellations later than 3 days in advance will result in loss of the $75.

Cabin Mates & Ages
This retreat is for all kids, ages 11-16. If you were a Creekside camper last year but have turned 11yo, we welcome you to attend this retreat. We encourage campers to invite a new friend as this weekend is a small taste of summer camp & is the perfect way for a new camper to see the camp in a super friendly environment. You are welcome to request one mutual cabin mate for this retreat & you will have the opportunity to do so during the online registration process.
We are experienced in accommodating special dietary needs. But we need your help with making us aware of dietary restrictions & needs in advance so we can make sure your child’s mealtime experience here is great. Please fill in as much detail as possible in the special diet section of the retreat health form (part of the online registration already) & contact our cook (Erin at foodservice@campsankanac.
Please bring any medications your child may need in their original as prescribed containers. During drop off on Friday evening, you will have the opportunity to discuss dosage & instructions with our staff who will be administering the medications.
What to Bring
-Pillow/Sleeping Bag (Campers will stay in our winterized Cliffside cabins…they are toasty warm and have bathrooms)
-Weather Appropriate Clothing: It’s winter! We can get anything from balmy sunshine to snow…please pack according to weather conditions. We’ll most likely be enjoying the outdoors regardless! Boots, jacket/coat/hat/gloves, snow gear/sled if snow is forecast, rain coat/boots if rain is forecast, etc. Extra clothes are recommended in case we get messy.
-Shoes: We recommend packing solid sneakers or hiking boots (and an extra pair is a great idea!). If rain is forecast, throw in a pair of rain boots if you have them.
-Spending Money: This year there will be a small “snack shop” available for the kids to purchase candy & snacks from during free time (all items $1.50 and under). We also have soda machines available if they are interested in purchasing sodas or Powerade.
