Youth Camp

Summer Camp 2019

We believe that Jesus changes lives for the better and that a week at camp focused on Jesus can be a life changing experience. Join us this summer to be led by great cabin leaders, high energy worship and music, engaging skits, fun games such as carpetball and nuke 'em, large group games, horseback rides, slingshot paintball, gaga ball, swimming, soccer, 9-square in the air, football, ranch camp, challenge course, 2:15@2:15, bonkers, canoeing, great friends, the mime, Chapel, and many great times filled with the love of Jesus!

The theme for Summer 2019 is "Press On" with our theme verse coming from Philippians 3:13-14.  We pray that every camper who comes to Riverside this summer will come to know the great love of Jesus and what it means to press on after God and His Kingdom, His way in every aspect of our lives. Our desire is for those who already know Jesus to grow in their faith and see more of God's Kingdom around them and for those who have never heard the good news of the Gospel to begin a lifelong journey of walking with Jesus Christ.  Please join us in prayer for a great summer!


Where do you begin?  To experience all of this, and much more, you can register online!  If you have never been to Riverside before, or if you’ve been here for many years, we promise that this will be a great summer of living in and learning about the love of Jesus!

" I learned that I can take anything to Jesus, and I am longer a captive of anything of this world." -Camper
