Youth Winter Camp 

All youth grades 6th-12th are invited to 2023 Forest Home Winter Camp! This winter will be full of fun and intentional time for both students and leaders. The Spiritual theme is "The Turning Point" which will guide us through moments in scripture as well as moments in our own lives where we're stopped by a decision: to choose obedience and trust God's faithfulness or to trust ourselves and what we think is best. Plus, there is so much more in store for you to experience at Forest Home: playing games, sipping hot chocolate by the fire pits, and the chilly rush of the zip-line in the winter! Registration is now open! Cost is $250 per camper. Click here to sign up!
