This Program is Designed for Congregational Groups
There is no better place for youth to explore their Christian faith than at one of our Crossways Camps! Youth will 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.
Confirmation Camp is available at each of our three sites over a variety of weeks for you to chose which works best for your congregation. The 2021 rate for Confirmation Camp is $465/camper. Many congregations offer financial support to Confirmation Campers, and this can be arranged when booking space.

We strongly encourage that you wait to submit your request for 2021 Confirmation Camp until you have a high degree of certainty in what your final camper numbers will be.
Note that this year’s Confirmation Camp Group Request form has a few changes to best accommodate all congregations while still working with anticipated limited capacity. We will process requests as we receive them. To request your preferred week and camp, please click on the link below. If your first-choice week/site is not available, our office will contact you to find an agreeable alternative. You must complete our online form via Google Forms to reserve your Confirmation Camp space.
Unlike previous years, we will not offer an early bird discount so please wait to fill out your request until you have an accurate estimate of male and female youth campers attending. There is no deadline for requesting group space for your Confirmation group.
Dear Confirmation Leaders,
Crossways is now accepting group reservation requests for Confirmation Camp 2021. We are so excited to welcome campers back after what was an all too quiet summer of 2020. The process of requesting group space for Confirmation Camp remains basically the same as the past few years and is outlined further down in this email.
We know that there will be many questions about camp for 2021. We will do our best to answer those questions but there are still so many unknowns with 6 months until the start of camp season that we ask for your patience and grace as we work out the particulars. We are following guidance from national, state and local health officials as well as the American Camp Association. Be assured that the safety of our camper guests and staff are our top priority. A couple items of note that we are anticipating based on current safety guidelines is a reduction of the number of campers per cabin and also limitations on the number of adult leaders allowed on site per week. We do not have specifics at this time but will share updates as decisions are made.
While we face inevitable changes and unknowns as we look forward to Summer 2021, we know what hasn’t changed. Camp at its core is still about faith formation, laughter, games, building relationships and the realness of God’s good creation.
Thank you for your past support of the mission of Crossways Camping Ministries by participating in our confirmation program. After reading through this email, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you have about this process.

Confirmation of Your Week/Site & Sending in Deposits
After you complete the Confirmation Camp Group Request form to request your preferred week/site for 2021 Confirmation Camp and your week is assigned, your congregation will receive an invoice from our administrative office confirming the week/site and the number of camper spots reserved. The invoice will show a balance due of $50 per camper spot reserved. Deposits are required to secure camper spots and are due within 30 days of invoicing.
Deposits paid are applied to individual camper costs of $465.00 which will be reflected on the church's overall confirmation camp balance. No Camper Names are due at the time of the deposit.
Upon receipt of your deposit payment, you will receive instructions for online registration. Each congregation group will be assigned a unique group code that families must use to register for your specific week of camp. As long as families have your group code, they can start registering as early as January 4th, when we open Summer 2021 registration online.
After your initial request to block space, any increase or decrease to your group's size should be coordinated by contacting Steve Delany, Registration Manager, at our Appleton office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 920.882.0023).
