Heading to Georgia!

The Best Week of Your Life = July 24 - July 30
Here’s the Deal: High school kids from Camdenton High, Macks Creek, School of the Osage (Lake of the Ozarks Area) are headed to Sharp Top Cove in Georgia. Sharp Top Cove is positioned in the mountains in Georgia with a picturesque Lake in the middle of camp.  
    We will depart on chartered busses the night of July 23 and return the morning of July 31.
What is Sharp Top Cove like?  Basically, it’s a resort!  If you like high adventure, you can take a ride on the half mile long zip line into the lake, or ride on the huge tree top swing.  There is also a mountain bike course, take a swim in the lake, the giant pool or hang out in the hot tub, and you can get blobbed into the Lake.  For the less adventuresome, there is the sprawling pool deck, frisbee golf course, game room, basketball courts, sand volleyball, and fully equipped weight room.  Not to mention some of the best food around (culinary trained chef staff), a snack bar, camp store, and amazing accommodations!!!
How much? Total cost of the trip will be $649.  This includes transportation on chartered busses, insurance, lodging, all the activities and excellent food for the 7 days.  The only "extra" money you'll need is for food on the bus trip and snacks/merchandise at the Timber Wolf Lake Store (optional).
For your convenience, we ask that you turn payments in according to the following due dates:
$50 deposit (Dec. 7th or any time after that) – $250 payment (May 1st) — $250 payment (June 1st)  –     Remaining camp balance due (July 1st)
How do I sign up?  Bring your $50 deposit and the registration form included to club on Dec. 7th or any day after that.   (Your deposit can be refunded if requested before March 25th, after that it is non-refundable due to having to make a financial commitment to the camp at that time.)
Spots are limited!  We only have 10 guaranteed spots for all of Camdenton High and the Lake of the Ozarks Area.  After that people will go on the wait list so get your deposit in ASAP to make sure you get a spot. 
Through bonds of friendship, we seek to assist teenagers in making their way in a confusing world.  We are there when kids need us and communicate the Christian faith in terms they can understand.  Our aim is to provide resources and an atmosphere in which kids can make intelligent decisions for themselves. Just in case you’ll worry, there is always a doctor and/or registered nurse at camp. Responsible, mature Young Life leaders will be involved with the kids in a well-planned program for the entire week.

"I love that everyone can get together on Monday nights. I love the Atmosphere. It starts at 7:27 pm  but I show up by 6pm because i'm so pumped to turn that one hour into a few hours of fun! " -Adam
"Young Life is like a family to me.  It takes all independent groups and allows us to come together and be one.  It allows us to grow deeper in our faith and build new relationships with other high sc​​​​hoolers." - Alex 
"we go to Young life so we don't live the thug life- LOL" -Macks Creek Peeps
"Young Life is a place for teens to have a blast without all the partying.  Some come already as a believer in Jesus, and some don't but either way, no matter who you are - you are loved.  It's not a place where you are forced to believe but if you are ready to take that step, the leaders are there to help you." - Dennis
"keep Calm  and pray on!" -syd

We have an awesome opportunity for adults in the community who would like to see one piece of what we do to share the love of Jesus with our high school friends. We have Club every Monday evening at 7:27pm. We can't really explain club, it just has to be experienced! We have an adult guest area, above the chaos, where you can watch what goes on. 
If you are interested in this unique opportunity, contact Adam VanDam

 The Gift of Eternity

We NEED you to reach the next kid with the life changing love of Jesus.  Prayer, People and Money are the never ending needs of any ministry.  It's interesting how God has designed us to participate in what He is doing.  Please help us reach a world of lost kids.  YOU are what makes the difference.  Please contact us with any questions.
