Preparing for our 2021 Campout!
See site map below.
If it gets to happen*, it's going to be a-ma-zing. After well over a year of isolation and social distancing, the 2021 campout is going to be a sweet reunion of sorts. We hope young and old, veterans and newbies will all plan on camping together with the church family at Barton Park along the Clackamas River this August. Join us on this summer trip to get sticky from 'smores, slap mosquitoes, and reveal your bedhead. You choose whether you pitch a tent and cook over the fire or bring your RV and plug in the microwave!
*We earnestly hope to be able to hold the campout this year. However, it is dependent on whether or not the county park rules will relax in time to allow large group gatherings in July.
The campout team has also been brainstorming ways to make this year's campout the best ever, which will be even sweeter because of our time spent apart. They are filled with excitement ready to provide an engaging experience for all ages, and have some great activities planned for the entire weekend. Put the dates on your calendar, and make sure to get signed up. Don't miss out!
