Family Camp 2017!

We believe that healthy families, whether there's two or twelve of you, make for healthy people, and that healthy, faithful people bring us just a bit closer to the kind of world God has in mind. And that's exactly what is at the heart of our vision for Family Camp: equipping you to do life meaningfully and faithfully, while creating the kind of memories childhoods are made of.
We’re excited to make Loon Lake our home for a weekend again this year, and can't wait to explore together what God has in store for you in 2017.

When

September 15-17, 2017
Friday evening until Sunday after lunch.
