Campers, ages 11-16, break out of your school year routine & join us for an awesome, action packed weekend with your favorite counselors & friends from summer camp! Pinesite & Cliffside age campers will have some good times enjoying camp in the winter season with lots of outdoor & indoor activities, campfires, your favorite camp foods & most importantly, God’s Word! This retreat is the perfect taste of summer in a welcoming, friendly environment! It’s the perfect time to introduce a new friend to camp!
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 email@example.com) no later than the Monday prior to the weekend to discuss the menu & substitutions. Thank you!
Please be sure that you have noted all medications on your child’s “Retreat Health Form” online. 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 issuing the medications. Placing your dosage instructions on a 3×5 card and enclosing all medications and instructions in a ziplock bag is recommended.
-Pillow/Sleeping Bag (Campers will stay in our winterized Cliffside cabins…they are toasty warm and have bathrooms)
-Weather Appropriate Clothing: 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 forecasted, boots/raincoat if rain is forecasted, play clothes, etc. Extra clothes are recommended in case we get messy. If the weather has been damp/rainy, we recommend rain or hiking boots of some sort. Extra shoes are always a great idea.
