Will this Family Camp be like last year’s Family Retreats?

Yes and No. From countless reviews, 2020’s Family Retreats turned out amazing. The staff took a lot of care to incorporate new health protocols in accommodation, activities and dining. Each 4 day weekend was a bit more laid back than YL Family Camps. And, other than being shorter, one of the big items missing was evening Club. We’re hoping we’ll be able to bring some of that back for 2021, but even if we can’t we’ll make Family Camp special.

When does Registration open?

We’re working on the details. Stay tuned. Feel free to email Mike or [add your name here] to get on the email list.

This week is designed to facilitate a great family vacation.

Traditionally there is some optional programming with activities most mornings to encourage family fun and there is a great deal of free time to enjoy the property each afternoon. In the evenings there is a one-hour “Young Life Club” with singing, laughter and a short talk about life and the Christian faith. Everyone is encouraged to attend, and many people report that this is a highlight of their week. There are also other evening activities planned that are great family fun.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!

Summer time is prime time

Summer is prime time at RockRidge Canyon. The days are extended to include more fun and the wide blue sky is consistently filled with puffy white clouds. In the summer, RockRidge Canyon comes alive with activities on the lake, in the pool, amongst the trees and inside where it’s cool.

Soar above the lake on the the famous zip line. Cast a line from the shores of Canoe Cove. Explore the property at your own pace on a Trek mountain bike. Relax in the pool or sink your toes in beach sand then try wake boarding for the first time. There is so much to do but this week it’s up to you.  

RockRidge Canyon sets the standard high when it comes to activities, food, accommodation and fun so you can rest assured this will be a true holiday – A summer break to remember.

Everyone is invited

Family Camp creates a unique opportunity for a community experience, as friends from neighbourhoods, schools, sports teams etc. attend together. Those who have been know that time at RockRidge Canyon is a rare and unique experience. The format of the week encourages adventure, stronger relationships and great conversations. While the majority of people attending Family Camp are families with children aged 5-13, all ages and kinds of friends & family groupings are welcome. Sometimes grandparents bring their teen grandchildren. Couples are welcome too! Overall it’s a fun week for all to join friends and make new friends in an amazing setting.

Children under 3 stay free.
