Welcome to a Young Life Weekend for Women

May 26-28, 2023

Experience the breathtaking expanse of the canyon, the surrounding mountains and soak in the beauty of the lake and the crisp fresh air. Gain confidence as you conquer the ropes course, Tower of Terror or lake-crossing zip line. Share some laughs in a canoe or kayak and find your balance on a stand up paddle board in picturesque Canoe Cove. Enjoy the delicious meals and good conversations.

This weekend you’ll experience Young Life through our evening club bursting with humour, music, and opportunities to learn about God’s great love. On Saturday, you are welcome to choose workshop topics that speak to your heart and bless your life. Our options will include topics like the mysteries of understanding ourselves and others, the mysteries of gardening and more. Explore a new topic and a new friendship that will grow and blossom into the future.

Solve The Mystery

Who did it? How? And Where? And Why? Follow the trail with your investigative skills. The team that is successful to “Solve The Mystery” will be amply rewarded with a very GRAND prize, and a runner up prize for the team who come in second. On Saturday Evening, we will have a sumptuous banquet for all our brilliant Investigators. Bring your best Investigator outfit and a party mask if possible, so we can have another mystery to solve.

Be refreshed

Our goal is for you to experience a warm, loving and encouraging environment, then return home refreshed and renewed.

We can’t wait to see you for this EPIC weekend!

Frequently Answered Questions

Are Vaccination Cards required for this event?

No. According to the BC Public Health Officer, on April 8, 2022, the proof of vaccination is not required under public health order to access businesses, events and services.

Wearing of masks is a personal choice.

Do we need to bring extra money for activities?

Sure – While most activities are included in the weekend price, it’s great to have cash or cards on hand for extras, like specialty coffees from the coffee shop or for gift items in The Ridge Trading Co.

Are there any age, size and weight restrictions for any activities?

Although the property can be enjoyed by any age, RockRidge Canyon was built for teenagers and therefore most activities are more suitable for school-aged children and older.

Mountain Bikes – Mountain bikes fit ages of about 12 to adult. Bike helmets are mandatory for all ages while on site. You may bring your own bikes if you wish, but keep in mind the paths are not paved. The dedicated mountain bike trails are challenging.

Zip Line – Guests must be 48 in tall and 60 pounds minimum. We want to be sure they fit the harness perfectly and have the weight to make it to the bottom! By the way, a maximum weight of 275 pounds is allowed. One person per harness and zip line.

The Ropes Course is harness dependent and The Tower has a 5 ft tall minimum. The maximum weight is 275 pounds.

Note: Weather, including wind is a factor in the safe operation of the zip line and all challenge activities.

Is alcohol/cannabis permitted?

No.

Complying with the decision of Young Life of Canada’s Board of Directors, RockRidge Canyon is an “alcohol/cannabis free zone“.

What about Cell and WIFI?
CELL – Rockridge Canyon is set in a mountain valley so cell phone coverage can be spotty around the property. Ask your service provider if you qualify for Wi-Fi Calling (text and phone calls).

For your convenience there are courtesy phones on site, which are free for long distance calls in North America. During your stay, anyone wishing to leave a message for you can call the RockRidge property office at 1 (250) 870-9030 and the message will be delivered at the earliest convenience.

WIFI – RockRidge Canyon has public Wi-Fi around the dining hall, in Wolfe Creek Lodge and in The Rock should you wish to bring your portable computer to stay in touch.

WIFI is set up for light capacity, such as checking emails, posting awesome selfies of your stay at RockRidge Canyon (@rockridgecanon), vs streaming movies.

Plan for an (almost) unplugged weekend. There’s lots to do on site. Bring your favourite games and crafts. Books are great too!

Is Electric Car charging available?
Electric charging is available in Princeton but not on site.

Please be sure to charge your vehicle prior to arriving.

Here’s a handy reference for local charging stations in Princeton:
