for church groups with youth who will have completed 6th-8th grade
There is no better place on earth for campers to explore their Christian faith than at one of our Crossways Camps. Connect on a new level through Bible studies, group initiatives, challenge courses, crafts, and worship. Confirmation camp is a unique experience for entire confirmation groups to be immersed in an intentional Christian community together, and have faith-filled conversations with their counselor and others. They will leave strengthened for service in their congregations, schools, and communities. Your confirmation group will learn more about their faith and dig deeper into what it means to live your faith and trust one another. The confirmation camp program is designed for congregational groups and work best when youth attend together.
I'm a pastor/youth leader/confirmation coordinator and I'd like my confirmation class to attend camp in 2019.

Request Your Preferred Week
View our 2019 Dates & Rates Flyer* and select the week/site that best works for your group. Make sure to pick a back up, just in case.
Group reservations will be accepted online starting October 1st. Congregation leaders will receive an emailed link to an online form (via SurveyMonkey) to request your preferred date/site for camp.
After October 1st a link to the online form will also be displayed here on our website.
Groups are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
*Any boy spots requested for
June 9-14/Imago Dei Village and
June 16-21/Pine Lake Camp
will be WAITLISTED. Boy spots for those two sessions are currently at capacity!
Send in Your Deposit
New this year is the process of requiring a $50 deposit per spot requested.* After your request is received our office will send you an invoice for the deposit amount, due within 30 days. When our office receives your deposit you will be sent registration instructions!
*Regarding deposits: All deposits are credited towards your congregation's final balance due. You may decrease camper numbers as needed up until March 15th. After March 15th we can release the unused spots in your group, or you can hold them (for full payment) in hopes to fill them still.
Register Your Group
Also new this year is the process of online registration for confirmation campers! All confirmed congregations (those from whom we have received a deposit) will be given a Group Hold Registration ID (registration code) which families will use to register their confirmation camper for your church's specific week of camp using our online registration system.
Congregations will receive detailed instructions on how to login to see who has registered, how to help families register, the timeline for registration, when forms are due, and more.
Congregations with their Group Hold Registration ID can have families register as early as November 1st, when summer 2019 registration opens.
