WELCOME TO CAMP! We want you guys to “get your game on” with an exciting night filled with stage games, silly videos, the chance to say hello to some of the most exciting, creative, and fun-loving people you could meet on a roadtrip. Of course, we’ll have a few guidelines to ensure we all have a safe and fun experience while at camp, but we know everyone will have a blast as we start Camp off right! What to Wear: Whatever you wore as you arrived at camp.
Water is the name of the game for this Camp-Wide Event. Whether you’re at the outdoor pool, playing water games on the front-lawn, or something in between, you’ll be sure to get SOAKED throughout the morning. So, pack your tropical swim trunks, goggles, and anything else you need to have fun in the sun! What to Wear: Wear your favorite swim trunks, plus anything else you might want for some fun at the pool.

Night at the Movies
Welcome to the 38th WinShape Academy Awards! Tonight, our campers are competing for this year’s Oscar for Best Cabin. To earn their Academy Votes, they must race through the movie sets of classic films, meeting some of their favorite movie stars and characters while collecting Oscars along the way. Who will earn their Hollywood Star and who will get snubbed at this year’s WinShape Academy Awards?What to Wear: This is an active event that will involve running from station to station so be sure to wear something comfortable to run in.
Tonight, we’ll meet you exactly where you are. Join us as we gather together in a high-energy worship service and dive deeper into what it truly means to have a one-on-one relationship with our Creator as we journey to the next stop on our Roadtrip! What to Wear: Whatever you wore that day!
Racers, start your engines! Welcome to the WinShape Circuit at Mega Relay 2023! Experience Mega Relay like you never have before out on the course as we compete to win the WinShape Cup! Work together as a Pit Crew to help get your team over the finish line first. Good luck!What to Wear: Many relays involve getting a little messy, so wear something you won’t mind getting dirty!
Council of the Wilds
“BO!!” is the only response you’ll hear at Council of the Wilds this summer. The fire will roar, and the air will be filled with the songs and chants of our Boys Camp Packs vie for the title of song time winner. This night is filled with anticipation, energy, and a little bit of mystery. What to Wear: Pack SWAG, Pack colors, or you can choose to go shirtless with just jeans and tennis shoes.
“Red is dead!” “Blue is through!” The epic battle between these two teams continues as one of our signature events returns to Camp. Socks will fly, flags will be stolen, and generals attacked when the blue and red teams fight for ultimate control. Are you ready for it?!What to Wear: Campers can dress in camo to “disappear” in the woods and brush throughout the playing field; or you can bring plenty of red and blue to support the team your Cabin is assigned to.
Wild Wild West
Welcome to the Wild, Wild West where anythin’ goes! Throw on some boots and grab a flannel to enjoy a nice escape to Freeman Town. Cowboys run these parts, but don’t worry, the nice townsfolk of Freeman Town are happy to welcome in visitors. Campers will get to put their rootin’ tootin’ skills to the test with interactive activities that will leave them hollerin’ “yeehaw” into the sunset!What to Wear:Flannels, boots, jeans, cowboy hats, and bandanas
Honey I Shrunk The Campers
Where did all the campers go? OH! They’ve been shrunk down! Campers will get to meet some of their favorite toy characters and help them acclimate to their new sizes. They’ll get to experience the life of a toy in this event where everyone gets the chance to interact with life-sized surroundings and games!What to Wear:Think “life-sized”! Campers can come as a life-sized object, or they can dress as their favorite toy character.
It’s Thursday night in the WinShape Nation and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate these incredible two weeks than an award show focused on one thing – YOU! We’ll have fun dances, wild games, videos, awesome music, and of course, our annual Skill Awards! What to Wear: We want to see campers dressed to the nines for this award-filled evening!
