Time to celebrate a new dawn, a new day and a new life!

May 27-29, 2022

 

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 learn a new skill in stand up paddle boarding in picturesque Canoe Cove.

This weekend you’ll enjoy 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 seminar topics that speak to your heart and bless your life. Renew or start a new relationship that will grow and blossom into the future.

The Saturday Evening Banquet is a special time of celebration and entertainment. Be prepared for a lot of laughter and fun.

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!

FEATURED SPEAKER

Julie Bohni Retreat Speaker

The fabulous Julie Bohni from Young Life, Coastal Region

Julie is passionate about relationships and adventure: put them together and you have camp!  Julie has worked in different roles in Young Life for the past 25 years and so comes to us with deep relational, scriptural and story-telling experience.

Julie has been married to Peter for 20 years and they have 3 kids, 17, 15 and 10. 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 dark chocolate.

With all this going on she is also a Registered Clinical Counsellor and maintains a private counselling practice.

She loves people’s stories and walking along-side them to experience how connection with self, others, and a creator produce love and compassion.

Come be challenged and encouraged!

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 will no longer be required under public health order to access businesses, events and services.

Wearing of masks will be a personal choice.

Do we need to bring extra money for activities?

Sure – It’s great to have cash or cards for ice-cream and treats at Scoops Snack Shop and for specialty coffees at the loft Canyon Coffee shop or purchasing 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:
