Journey Back To The Future

Young Life Adult Camp
Sept 25-27, 2020

Enjoy a Young Life family connection weekend at RockRidge Canyon!

Young Life presents a refreshingly new type of weekend because, when it feels like everything is changing, it’s good to know there are positive constants.
This special weekend is designed to be a time of celebration and renewal.
Yes, it’s going to be a little different. Yes, you’ll be asked to bring a mask to wear when appropriate. But one thing is for sure: You will experience warm YL hospitality, including protocol friendly fun, thoughtful speakers, excellent food, accommodation, and the unparalleled natural setting of RockRidge Canyon in September –It’s always good to go back!
HEALTH & SAFETY
RockRidge Canyon staff have been successfully running very popular Family Retreat Weekends throughout the month of August. They’ve done an amazing job learning and implementing protocols and the feedback has been incredible. They’re working hard to keep their guests, staff and volunteers safe and still provide an amazing experience. For more information please read the COVID-19 FAQ here.
  • Club: We’ll simultaneously use both The Rock and the Copper Room for Club, giving us lots of space to spread out and follow COVID-19 guidelines. YL President Mike O’ says, “We probably won’t be singing “Sweet Caroline, touching me, touching you.” Our program team still will be bringing on the laughs, appropriately.
  • Seminars: Be sure to sign up early as seminar rooms will have limited capacity to provide extra space between folks.
  • Meals: RockRidge Canyon has done a great job providing cafeteria style plated meals, meaning you pick, they plate. We’ll also have staggered meal times so that there aren’t large groups waiting in line, or long lines for food service. Plus, your table gets a friendly (masked) server to deliver your coffee and beverages.
  • Come with your bubble! Sign up with your family and friends within your bubble. You’ll be eating and seating together.
WHO IS THIS WEEKEND FOR?
You! We’d love to see past, current and future YL Committee members, Leaders, Staff and Volunteers. Bring your spouse. Bring members of your family. If you need a break, well, this is IT. (Btw, YL volunteer leaders, please contact Amy at the YL National office and ask about scholarships for this weekend).
Be sure to register with your family/friends group, as tables at meals, accommodations and some seminars are based on your PODS. (People Observing Distancing Safety). For those 18 and under, you are welcome with your family. Families, you are welcome to bring your children, but please keep in mind you are responsible for them at all times on the property.
OUR DESTINATION
If you’ve been to RockRidge Canyon then you know there is no place like it. 1500 acres of God’s creation in a secluded valley, surrounded by mountains and a serene lake fed by burbling creeks. The facilities are top-notch and maintained with care. Red Seal chefs prepare you meals. You choose your accommodation level – Wolfe Creek Lodge or Dorm Lodges. There are a tonne of activities available on site, including our new Willis Creek Nature Walk, kayaking, stand up paddle boards and canoes, bikes, ball hockey rink, basketball court and more. Enjoy classic campfire on Main Street or snacks in Scoops. For those who love coffee, we’ve got you covered. Baristas build your favourite brew in Canyon Coffee.
Heads up, the zip line and challenge courses will most likely remain closed for the season, however, weather permitting (and it’s generally awesome in September) we’ll have the pool and boats open!

Adult Camp Speaker
CAMP SPEAKER

Miller Zhuang

 

We are excited that Miller Zhuang will be our camp speaker!

Miller learned many life lessons at an early age. He found himself living on the street at the tender age of 6, while his parents were arrested and detained by the Chinese authorities.  The Lord used his experiences to draw him to Himself and give him a heart for youth. Miller’s faith deepened and he has served on Young Life staff in China.

Miller has church planted in Venezuela, been the Senior Pastor at Richmond Chinese Baptist Church and is currently President of Lifestyle Ministries International (Canada). Miller continues to get youth to camp at RockRidge Canyon every summer.  He and his wife have two sons, two daughters, and three grandchildren. We trust you will be inspired as you hear Miller’s story.
