Camper Application

Dates and Descriptions

YD camp takes place in a unique setting where young people ages 12–17 are encouraged to gain new skills in God’s great outdoors while strengthening their walk with the Lord.

No matter which week campers attend, they can expect to enjoy YD’s famous “Friendship Feast,” memorable music, and exciting outreach opportunities. Campers will learn new methods of getting into the Word for themselves, and find themselves growing in ways they may not have expected—all while making friends for life and eternity.

Campers will also enjoy a wide range of class options such as wilderness survival, mission pilot ground school, search & rescue, literature evangelism, fire building, canoeing, child evangelism, health evangelism, choir, orchestra and much more.

Week 1: July 15–22, 2018 

Week 2: July 22–29, 2018

LODGING: Enjoy a real camping experience! Lodging will be in cabin tents or simple wood cabins.

PHONES/ELECTRONICS: We believe that camp should be a place to make friends, enjoy nature, and learn about God. To best acheive these goals, camp policy requires that phones, games, computers, media players, etc., be left at home or checked into camp customs for safekeeping. Campers needing to place approved calls (i.e. family emergency), may do so in the camp office under the guidance of their counselor. Parents are encouraged to send messages to their children via mail, E-mail, or fax.

TRANSPORTATION: Bus service from/to Spokane International Airport is available for campers arriving by 2:30 pm on Sunday, July 15 or 22, and flying out after 1:00 pm on Sunday, July 22 or 29. Cost is $20 per direction per camper. The camp cannot provide pickup/drop-off service outside of these times.

STAFF: Staff are carefully selected based on their commitment to the Lord, high Christian standards, abilities, and love for young people. A high staff-to-camper ratio is maintained.

VOLUNTEERS/PARENTS: Staff volunteers are vital to the camp program! Service positions are available in a number of areas, but especially for food preparation. If you know of someone that may be able to serve, please contact the YD office or have them download a staff volunteer application online. Unfortunately we are unable to offer meals and lodging for non-staff parents or family members.

WELLNESS: Medical staff will be stationed on campus while EMS services and a medical clinic are just a few minutes away.
