Family Camp

September 1, 2023 – September 4, 2023

REGISTER HERE

 

Celebrate summer and the start of fall at a delightful Family Camp on the Oregon Coast over Labor Day weekend. Faith-building speakers, fun for the whole family, and family-friendly adventures await you.

Mornings at Family Camp begin with a relaxed breakfast followed by times of worship, interactive classes for children and youth, and engaging speakers. After lunch, play a round of mini golf, create craft projects, enjoy swimming and boating on Spring Lake, go hiking on mountain trails, join in a game of Frisbee golf or volleyball, take a ride on the Extreme Swing or zip line, grab a coffee or Italian soda at the Welcome Center, shoot some arrows, or head to the beach for some relaxation.

In the evening get ready for fun group games and other family activities. Relax with family and friends around a fire pit or play your favorite board game in the Dining Center.

At Family Camp, you’ll be encouraged to grow together as a family and in the Lord while enjoying the beauty of the Oregon Coast.

Join us for a refreshing time of family fellowship this September.

As we gather for the first time since the COVID pandemic, let us look back at the difficult times and see God’s hand in our lives. We will explore God’s presence in the midst of chaos and uncertainty, self-reflect on the toll such events can have on us emotionally, and consider steps to move on in God’s purpose after we have gone through this experience.

Important Reminders

  • Lake Activities are only available while lifeguards are on duty. Check the schedule for these hours.
  • NO swimming or even wading in the ocean due to very strong undertow. This is a dangerous beach. Please stay safe and out of the water. (The stream is a great alternative for kids who want to get wet!)
  • The Dining Hall is closed 30 minutes before each meal so that the set-up teams can work. Please remain outside the Dining Hall during this time. Otherwise, it’s a great place to hang out!
  • The nurse’s station is next to the Tillamook Bay room in Hadley Hall, but our nurse will usually be elsewhere on campus. Please find a TRFC staff member or Family Camp team member if you need medical assistance.
  • Watch for up-to-the-moment announcements and reminders on screen before each morning meeting.

Bridge Code : 511

Please use the bridge every time. If the stairs are a challenge, there is a limited amount of on-street parking at the beach. Please do not cross the highway on foot.
