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.
Blaze, Hydro, and Quake. Three ancient Squads from centuries past. While they come together each summer to battle for control of the WinShape Kingdom, their ties run deep. At our Induction Ceremony, only those receiving their Squad or who are active members are welcome. We’ll have the chance to share the legend behind how our Squads were formed and then allow first-time campers the opportunity to be inducted. What to Wear: We encourage campers and staff to wear their Squad colors! Red & Yellow for Blaze, Blue & Silver for Hydro, and Green & Brown for Quake. There will be plenty of Squad SWAG that you can grab from the Camp Store during Check-in on Spectacular Starting Sunday!
Like the classic boardgame, this event will be full of twists and surprises that might leave you with more questions than answers. Tonight, campers will have the chance to solve a mystery by putting together every clue they find and use deductive reasoning to make an accusation of guilt against one of the main characters.What to Wear: Campers can come dressed as a detective or wear what they wore that day at camp!
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!
ALOHA! Break out your favorite Hawaiian Shirt and your reindeer antlers for a Hawaiian Christmas Party! We're celebrating a bit early this year with a fun island twist. From tiki torches to stockings on the mantle, camp will be singing Mele Kalikimaka ALL NIGHT LONG!!What to Wear: Your favorite Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses, or your favorite Christmas attire!
All week the three Squads of the WinShape Kingdom have been competing in our Daily Challenges, and now we get to join in one final battle for it all – SQUAD WARS! Join the rest of your brothers from the Squad you call home as you defend your base and try to take down the opposing Squads with sawdust-filled socks. As a camp favorite, you won’t want to miss this night! What to Wear: Campers can come dressed in camo shirts and pants, or even a ghillie suit! Of course, your Squad colors are never a bad choice for any event as well!
