Camp Memories

Nick's talks were by far the best talks I've ever heard.
The most meaningful thing this week was cabin time,
just talking to friends about struggles in my life.
I loved the 20 minutes we had alone.
I learned that I needed to let go of my fears and trust Christ.
This was the best week of my life...for real.



Young Life and Castaway Club maintain the highest level of safety and standards in operation of all of our activities at camp.

All of Castaway Club's challenge course elements (ropes course, climbing wall, and zip line) are inspected and approved by The Association of Challenge Course Technology and by Adventure Experiences, Inc. All elements are operated and supervised by our staff who have been fully trained and certified to do so, ensuring your child's comfort and safety.

Castaway Club's waterfront program is also facilitated by trained and experienced staff. Your child will be in good hands while at Castaway Club.

In the event of an unexpected accident, there is always a qualified medical professional on call to tend to your child's needs. Also, if needed, the local hospital is only a short drive away.
