Family Camp

Summer 2019

Join us for an awesome week of Family Camp June 30-July 3! Join us for a week of setting aside time to grow as a family in your journey with Christ. Be sure to register early, as we expect both of our Family Camps to fill up this summer. Here's what you can expect. Each morning families will gather in the chapel for singing, skits, and sharing of God’s Word. Following chapel time, all the children will be divided according to age groups and will spend the morning with our amazing cabin leaders and experience a time of learning more about Jesus and experience some really fun activities! While the kids are hanging out with our staff, the adults will be hearing from our wonderful guest speakers - meet the Ochoa family below!


Many activities will be offered during Free Time each afternoon. Families will enjoy swimming and relaxing poolside at our aquatics center, horseback riding, Rec Hall fun—carpetball, foosball, Camp Store, Art Fun, and Family Bonding time! If the water level is appropriate, families may canoe the river from Riverside to Story City. Evenings will be filled with many great family activities, including campfires and the Mime. Families will also experience Riverside’s FAMOUS parade and barbecue dinner. We hope to see you there!

Meet our Speakers for 2019

June 30- July 3 : Enrique (Q) and Martha Ochoa

Enrique (Q) and Martha Ochoa have been married over 27 years and are grateful that their entire married life has been lived out in Cedar Falls, IA, where they raised a family of 4 children: Joshua (now 24 and married to McKenzie), Becky (22), Joel (19) and Lydia (17). Q has 30+ years of local church ministry experience. He currently serves as a chaplain and worship coordinator for Western Home Communities. Martha serves as a physician and medical director at the University of Northern Iowa Student Health Clinic. They believe time spent building and strengthening relationships with the Lord, with family, friends and even strangers is time rarely wasted. They are excited to serve as speakers this summer!
