This year we are offering the traditional two-day retreat as well as a shorter option to make it both more affordable and more easily fit into busy schedules. We do not want anyone to miss out on all the great fun at this event!

Can’t stay overnight? No worries. You can still enjoy the Youth Halloween Party. Everyone from the Northshore area… and beyond is welcome to join the festivities!


Tentative Schedule of Events:

Friday Night: Check-In at 5 pm, Dinner, Hayride, Worship, Bonfire, Creatures of the Night Hike

Saturday Morning: Daily Devotion, Brunch, Activities, Lunch

Saturday Afternoon: New Arrivals Check-In at 1 pm, Activities, Bible Study, Snack, Activities, Dinner

Saturday Evening: Costume and Party Preparations,  Youth Halloween Party (7 – 10 pm)

Sunday Morning: Brunch, Activities

Sunday Afternoon: More Activities, Snack, Closing Praise/Worship Service


Worship Theme:

“The Masks We Wear”

Worship and Bible Study focus on how we try to disguise or hide from the Lord and others in our lives those things we are uncomfortable, embarrassed, or ashamed of… yet we cannot hide from the Lord… nor do we need to… for he already knows and loves us just the same.

Retreat Registration Options:

Friday & Saturday Nights/$115.00 per youth (Check-In 5 pm Friday through Pick-Up 3 pm Sunday)

Friday Night Only/$40.00 per youth (Check-In 5 pm Friday through Pick-Up 3 pm Saturday)

Saturday Night Only/$75.00 per youth (Check-In 1 pm Saturday through Pick-Up 3 pm Sunday)

Note: All inclusive registration fees covers: Lodging, bedding, meals, snacks, games & activities.

Discounts Available for One or Two-Night Retreat Registrations:

Multiple Session Discount applies only to Summer 2018 Vanderkampers

Multiple Sibling Discount applies to each brother or sister.

Bring a NEW Friend Discount applies to Vanderkamper and a friend (limit one per kamper). Both youth new to Vanderkamp’s programs? Discount applies to them both!

Kampership (scholarship) Assistance available for one or two-night retreat registrations as well. We believe no youth should be denied the ability to attend a Vanderkamp youth program due to financial concerns and no family should bear the indignity of proving their need. Simply tell us during the registration process how much you need and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
