What is the Spring Up Retreat?

This is a new retreat for Camp Horizon. This retreat is catering to churches that may not have enough youth to put on a retreat of their own. We will provide worship, camp activities, large group games, and break out sessions. This would be a great opportunity to introduce camp to students who have been unable to come in the past and a chance for past campers to come and see their friends. 

How do I register?

Just call the camp office at 620-442-5533.

Do I need a deposit?

Yes, for every spot you want reserved, the cost is $10.  It will be applied to the overall bill.

Do campers register individually?

No, churches need to register their campers as a group.

Do I need adult chaperones?

Yes, although Horizon is providing all of the programming, we still rely on church leaders to supervise the campers.  We recommend bringing one adult (Age 21+) for every eight youth.  Each adult must be trained in Safe Gatherings.

What do I need to bring?

  • A completed health form
  • A completed release form
  • Towel and toiletries
  • Sleeping bag and pillow
  • Water bottle
  • Comfortable clothes and shoes
  • Work gloves
  • A Bible
  • Extra money for souvenirs from the Camp Store (optional)

    What activities do I need to plan?

    None. We will plan all the activities for you!
