WINTERTAINMENT

Five Snow-Filled Days That Can Change Your Life

What's Wintertainment?

It's downhill excitement. It's fireside hangouts. It's fuel for your faith. It's five days you won't forget. 

The wintry environment is perfect for navigating down snow-covered hills on skis or a snowboard. Maybe a tube run down Bullet or Big Bend is more your speed. Off the hill, you can explore the acre after acre of forest via cross-country skis or snowshoes. After a day in the outdoors, you can grab a gourmet hot chocolate and hang out with friends in front of one of our fireplaces.  

Wintertainment campers will be equipped and challenged through Bible teaching during sessions. Trained, mission-driven counselors will lead cabin groups through devotions and cabin activities throughout their time at camp. During free time, campers can take advantage of many fun-filled winter programs areas. 

Our staff works to ensure each camper's physical, emotional and spiritual needs are met. As a parent, you can rest assured that your child will be safe thrive in our Christian community!

A Note to Parents

Cabin Arrangements - Forest Springs has cabin clusters created to give male and female campers privacy. To maintain privacy, members of the opposite sex are not allowed in cabin clusters (i.e. male campers are not allowed in female cabin clusters). 

Cancellations - They do occur sometimes. If you need to cancel your registration, please notify us as soon as possible. Your courtesy may help another camper on a waiting list to be able to attend. However, your registration deposit is not refundable or transferable.

 

Our Speaker - Dave Creek 

Dave is passionate about the different roles he has as a husband, father, pastor, and therapist. Dave has been working with youth and families for the past 17 years, which ultimately led him to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Dave and his wife live in Minnesota with their four boys.
 
Over the years, Dave has had the privilege to work with adolescents and adults on different continents. He's learned there is a uniqueness that connects people together if we listen. Stories. Everyone has one. We're all part of a bigger one. At the heart of it, Dave is a storyteller with the hope of bringing people one step closer to the person of Jesus Christ. He believes that we all have the ability of becoming more of the person we are designed to be when we are honest with our own stories and learn how to continue merging them with God's greater story.
