About this retreat

What are you looking for in a winter camp for your High School students? Sound Biblical teaching? (Check.) Intensely creative games and group challenges? (Check.) A beautiful location, opportunities for deep discussions, authentic worship? (Check, check, check!) Oh yeah, and don’t forget the hot chocolate. (Check.)

High School Winter Camp at Forest Home is an experience designed to challenge, encourage, and engage students who are in 9th-12th grade. Each activity during the weekend is purposefully planned to get them out of their normal routines and challenge them into something more significant, more adventurous, and more intentional. Our staff strives to keep the teaching relevant and Biblical, and they each look for ways to encourage students to have deep discussions, prayer, and quiet times of reflection. We want to partner with you and your volunteers to nurture your students in their journeys with Christ.

We also think campers should have loads of FUN while encountering their Creator, so we offer tons of options for winter recreation and outrageous group games. Zip lining through the trees, careening down the tube run, playing games in a cozy lodge, climbing the Sky Trail (and more!) are sure to create memories that will outlast any SnapChat post.

Dates: February 16 - February 19, 2018

Speaker: Kate Johnson

Kate Johnson loves Jesus and deeply desires for those around her to know and experience Him in their daily lives. She has a BA in Youth Ministry from Azusa Pacific University and her Master’s in Divinity from APU as well. She currently serves as the Student Ministries Pastor at Rockharbor Mission Viejo in Southern California.

She is married to Aaron Johnson, her surfer husband and best friend, and they love the beach and surfing together.

They live in Southern California and love to go to Trestles (surf spot) and have fire pits in the backyard.

Worship: The Advance

The Advance desires to see the hope of Jesus Christ impact a broken world. With a passion for worship they strive to foster a genuine experience in churches, camps, colleges, and events. They are constantly seeking to raise the musical bar and find creative ways to inspire people. Just this summer they released two brand new singles, “FOR THE MANY” and “TREASURE.” The Advance’s 2014 EP, “We Are The Advance” debuted at #14 on the iTunes Christian and Gospel Charts.

The Advance has partnered with many churches, camps and conferences across the US and has had the opportunity to support artists like Stephen Christian, The Digital Age, The City Harmonic and many more.
