Winter Camp 2021: Not A Camp!

Thanks for a great 'Not A Camp' in 2021!  We look forward to the return of Winter Camp 2022.  Check back in December 2021 for information.


Winter Camp is for our entire group of middle school and high school students.  We typically head to Camp Jonah in Trout Lake, Washington.  Winter Camp  is a great way for students to deepen their connections with our group of leaders and students, since Winter Camp is just Gateway!  It's a helpful environment for students to hear and deepen their understanding of what it means to follow Christ.  There will also be plenty of team games, snow activities (if there is snow), gym activities, singing, and time with your friends.

Camp Tadmor Edition


Our summer camp for Middle School Students (incoming 6th-8th grade) is a great environment for students to hear from and respond to Christ while having a great time with Gateway's youth staff and other students. We join with a number of other churches from Clark County for an exciting experience close to home.  Enjoy friends, great teaching, live music, night games, hands on initiatives,  basketball, swimming at the lake, and  much more.    


We normally have camp at Camp Arrah Wanna on Mount Hood but we are unable to hold camp there this summer because they are performing some major facility repairs. Thankfully God has provided the opportunity for us to have camp at Camp Tadmor, which is an excellent camp with even more activities available than Arrah Wanna!


Here's all the information to get your student signed up!
