Sunday Only Info

If you’re coming up just for the day, treat this like a day at the park! Bring food the for the mealtimes you’ll be here for, towels, blankets, lawn chairs, and anything else your family might want!

Here are some basics:

Parking → There is a designated parking lot that you will be directed to. There is limited parking, so if possible, please carpool!

Travel Time → If you’re aiming to be here for our Sunday Gathering at 10am, please make sure you leave enough time to get here, park, and get settled.

How long can I stay? → You can come as early as you want, and leave as late as your want, but you cannot stay overnight unless you register beforehand.

What’s there to do for the day? → We’re kicking off Sunday with an outdoor worship service at 10am, then we’ll break for lunch (you’re on your own for food), there will be a cornhole tournament, lots of trails to hike, a lake and river to swim in, and we’ll cap off the night with some worship around the campfire.

What about my kids? → Kids are absolutely welcome, and might have more fun than you! Just remember, there’s no childcare, so watch your kids, and bring the gear you’d need if you were spending the day at a park or at a lake.


Cost: $12 per person + $5 per vehicle per night

Check-out is noon on Monday.
