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.

Speaker: Eric Holmstrom

Worship: Kate Johnson

Speaker: Eric Holmstrom

Eric loves Jesus, his brilliant bride Sarah, and their four kids; Charlie (7) Brinley (5), Lila (3), and Levi (1). If he’s not hanging out with his family, jumping on the trampoline with the neighborhood kids, working on his insta-story, or on a date with Sarah, you can find Eric hanging out with students talking about how Jesus changes everything. Eric has the privilege of serving as the High School Pastor and Student Ministries Pastor at Purpose Church in Pomona, CA. Eric loves serving the local church through preaching, leadership trainings, and student ministry resources. Find out more about Eric by visiting his Instagram: @Eric.H.Holmstrom

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.
