ALL 7th- 12th


This year’s Youth Campout will be held on October 1 & 2. All 7th through 12th graders are invited to come join us for an overnight camping experience at the Lake of Three Fires State Park in Bedford, Iowa.


We will be leaving the Max on Friday (10/1) at 5:30 pm. Upon arriving at Lake of Three Fires, students will be tasked with setting up camp. We will then make our way to a shelter where we will roast hot dogs and have our first Bible study. After an evening game, we will have a second Bible study. On Saturday morning we will have a final Bible study and then spend the remainder of our time kayaking (life jackets will be provided and required) as well as working on Nature Mosaics. We plan on being back at the Max by 12:00 pm on Saturday (10/2) for pickup.


We will be sleeping in tents, so students will want to bring a change of clothes, camping shoes or boots (no open-toed sandals), a pillow, a sleeping bag, and possibly an air mattress if you have one. There are showers at the campground so throw in a towel and soap as well. Finally, we are asking students to leave all electronics at home. Students can bring a cell phone, but can only use it to call parents or take a few pictures. So what are you waiting for, sign up below! Adult sponsors may sign up here.

Sign Up by September 29!
