SUMMER CAMP FOR KIDS AND YOUTH AT ANGELES CREST WILL BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT!
Another school year is coming to a close and summer is just around the corner. Craaaazy! As your family’s calendar begins to fill up, the children and student ministries’ teams at Gold Coast Church want to encourage you to make SUMMER CAMP a priority for your student and their friends.
Summer camp at Angeles Crest is a great time of fun, teaching, worship and new friends in a unique remote mountain setting. It’s life-changing, a much-needed spiritual shot in the arm for our students who deal with intense peer pressure and a myriad of challenges and temptations in their day to day lives. Angeles Crest always does a great job of planning a dynamic week that is not to be missed.
When campers aren’t in organized worship or hearing from inspirational speakers, they’re busy with tons of awesome activities like paintball, basketball, digglers (a unique cross between BMX & a scooter), Zip lining, volleyball, archery, a climbing wall, a trampoline, hiking trails, swimming, games and so much more!
The cost is $320 if you make a $100 deposit and turn in the permission slips by May 20. After that date, the cost is $335. Partial scholarships are available so don’t let money be the deciding factor. If you have any questions, feel free to message Sharon (805) 204-8644 or Christian (541) 601-7131.
