REGISTRATION DEADLINE OCTOBER 1st
Young Life Adult Camp
October 15-17, 2021
Enjoy a Young Life-style weekend at RockRidge Canyon!
FUN, INSPIRATION & RELAXATION
If you’ve been to RockRidge Canyon, then you know there is no place like it. Enjoy 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’s a tonne of activities available on site, including our new Willis Creek Nature Walk, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and canoes, bikes, ball hockey rink, basketball court and more. Enjoy a classic campfire on Main Street under the stars and snacks in Scoops. For those who love coffee, we’ve got you covered. Baristas build your favourite brew in Canyon Coffee. It’s a Young Life weekend so that means we have fun hosts and engaging speakers lined up too.
Heads up, the Zip Line and Challenge courses will open plus, weather permitting, we’re hoping Beach Hut (canoes, kayaks, paddle boards) open, and the barge lake tours running, too!
This fun-filled weekend is a time for anyone 18+ to experience the Young Life style of camp, as it is modelled after the summer camping with teens. Come with your friends, on your own or with your spouse. You’ll leave having made new friends and great memories.
Bring your running shoes for hikes and walks. Feel free to bring a book and a camp chair and relax by the lake or in the Loft. There’s always plenty to do, or not. It’s up to you.
Of course, expecting some Covid restrictions, it’s going to be a little different. But one thing is for sure: You will experience warm YL hospitality, including protocol friendly fun, inspiring speakers, excellent food, comfy accommodations, outdoor activities and the unparalleled natural setting of RockRidge Canyon.
If you’re married, single, leaving your spouse at home to look after the kids or grandkids, or you’re carpooling with a group of friends – basically if you’re 18 and older – You’re welcome to YL Adult Camp!

COVID-19 & GUEST HEALTH
RockRidge Canyon staff have been successfully running popular Family Retreat Weekends and School Day Trips. They’ve done an amazing job learning and implementing health protocols and the feedback has been incredible. They’re working hard to keep guests, staff and volunteers healthy and still provide an amazing experience.
Do I need proof of vaccination to attend?
RockRidge Canyon is a multifaceted facility, offering a range of services and activities to guests. RockRidge Canyon is required, and follows, BC PHO and Interior Health orders. The services offered guests during the Adult Camp do not require proof of vaccination. That said, vaccinations are recommended and masks are required in all indoor spaces, except in worship services and while eating.
- Limited Wolfe Creek Lodge rooms are available as housekeeping staff allow for cleaning protocols during turnover.
- Dorm lodge rooms currently accept a maximum of 8 people (preferably in your bubble). Register together.
- Meal tables will be pre-assigned so that you can sit with who you are staying with.
- You may be asked to complete a brief temperature and health check upon arrival.
- As things do change, we’ll all be flexible, show grace, and have a still great time because, hey, it’s Young Life and RockRidge Canyon!
HEY, WHAT’s THE THEME?
Every year at Young Life adult camps we have a fun theme tying the program together. It’s light. It’s loose. It’s a lot of fun. You might see it pop up at registration, breakfast, lunch, dinner or Club. This year we’ve selected “Around The World In 80 Days”.
Many of us haven’t been travelling out of Canada as of late so why not bring “the world” to RockRidge Canyon? Come prepared for Saturday night as we dress up and celebrate our countries of origin or parent’s heritage (yes, you can choose Canada!). We also believe that Christ’s message of good news is for all nations. Young Life Adult Camp – It’s your passport to celebrate together.
Be sure to watch your emails after registration for further weekend information.
FEATURED CAMP SPEAKERS
The megawatt Julie Bohni
Our speaker this year is passionate about relationships and adventure. Put them together and you have camp!
Julie is currently the Area Director in Langley and has worked in many roles in Young Life for the past 26 years – so she comes to us with deep relational, scriptural and story-telling experience. She also enjoys anything outdoors (hiking, biking, snow shoeing, snowboarding, skiing, rollerblading), cooking, coffee (but only decaf – which may surprise you when you see her energy), and chocolate (especially dark chilli). Julie has been married to Peter for 20 years and they have 3 kids, ages 16, 14, and 10.
Julie loves people’s stories and walking along-side them to experience how connection with self, others, and a creator produce love and compassion. She’s also a registered clinical counsellor and has a private practice.
The corporeal Brendan Weidner, in person
Brendan Weidner’s heart for teens is deep and wide, as well as his heart for God. He has been involved with Young Life for 25 years, as a student, volunteer, and a staff member since 2000. Until recently he oversaw Young Life in Surrey, Langley, and White Rock and has now raised up staff to oversee those areas. Currently he leads the Cloverdale and Delta area.
