Winter Camp 2015

This winter is going to be the best one yet!  We are going up to Forest Home for another year of Winter Camp.  We will be heading up January 16-19, 2015.  

Once there plan on hanging out with 600 Middle Schoolers at the Tubing Hill, the Clubhouse, the Den, the Stage Coach Coffee House, Zip Lines, the Huge Swing and about 1,000 other great places.  If you have been before, you know it is the best place to spend a weekend! 

The cost is only $290.  That gets you a Charter bus ride up and back, all meals up at camp, sleeping in awesome heated cabins, and some amazing program that will create some of the best memories of your life!

Space is limited and the only way to guarantee your spot is to place a $100 non-refundable deposit.  We take Credit/Debit Card (in person), cash and checks (please make payable to La Jolla Presbyterian Church).  Sign ups always fill up fast.  

Questions?  Call or email Chris or Alyssa.
