About this retreat

Ready to slide down a snow-covered tube run? Encounter Jesus? Deepen friendships with students in your youth group?

Junior High/High School Combo Winter Camp is THE place for your 6-12th grade campers to get away from the academic and social pressures and instead focus on their identity in Christ and place in God’s family of believers. During a 3-day weekend of camp running Friday through Sunday, students will discover who God has made them to be through teaching from God’s Word, small group discussions, and relevant worship.

Of course, no Winter Camp is complete without the fun! Creative games and interactive team challenges ensure there is never a dull moment. Campers have the freedom to explore the many seasonal recreation options at Forest Home all weekend long. (Hot chocolate at Stagecoach, Zip lining through the trees, or Phase Ten by the fireplace, anyone?) Campers will enjoy living in community, making new friends, and creating memories that will give them confidence as they navigate the changes and challenges that middle school so often brings.

Dates: January 11 - January 13, 2019

Speaker: Ryan Beaver

Worship: Kate Johnson

Speaker: Ryan Beaver

Ryan and his wife Jenn live in Temecula, CA with their 4 amazing kids. Prior to taking his current position of Children’s Pastor at Rancho Community Church, Ryan spent over 15 years leading youth and young adult ministries in the Temecula valley as well as serving as the teaching pastor for Rancho Community’s Murrieta campus. Ryan loves being able to take the life-changing truth of the gospel and present it to kids in a clear and engaging way.

The Beaver kids love playing sports and Ryan and Jenn love getting to watch them play. They also love watching goofy comedies together, taking their annual trips to Laughlin and Brianhead, and last but not least they all love the Seattle Seahawks!

Worship: 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 has worked in full-time vocational youth ministry for ten years and currently is freelancing speaking, writing, music lessons, Worship Workshops, and all sorts of things in-between.

Kate loves to write about God’s presence in her life and in the lives of those around her. She also writes worship songs regularly, mostly because she grew up wanting to be the next Amy Grant and hasn’t stopped writing songs since.

Creativity, honesty, humor, and the Holy Spirit’s vital presence are integral to Kate’s life and are values that she holds in friendships, in marriage, in herself, and in her relationship with Jesus.
