June 28th – July 3rd – Wildwood, New Jersey
Trips add immense value to the lives of the students who participate. They cultivate friendships, invite adventure, and bring about discussion that engages kids to think deeper about life, purpose, and Jesus. Trips fill kids with excitement and curiosity and connect them with reality. These shared experiences create and deepen friendship with their peers and loving trust with their leaders adding more resources to help guide them through life
Location & Community
Heatwave is produced by Youth For Christ and is held annually at the Wildwoods Convention Center, a state-of-the-art facility located on the famous Wildwood Boardwalk directly overlooking the ocean.
We strongly believe in the power of community, and the entire weekend is structured around building relationships and creating meaningful conversations with those you are staying with. When you register, you will be given an opportunity to request specific roommates, and we will do everything to accommodate these. But, as the great English philosopher Mick Jagger once quoted, “You can’t always get what you want.”
Registration must be submitted with at least a $50 nonrefundable deposit. Fundraising opportunities and scholarships are available. Please contact your Campus Life Director for more information
Transportation, hotel accommodations, Heatwave T-Shirt, beach & field sports tournaments, admission to all general sessions, boardwalk challenges, small group breakouts and whatever else we can dream up. The cost does not include food, but it does include the motel.
Every student attending Heatwave is required to attend one of the trip briefing meetings with a parent or guardian. During these meetings, we will review important details such as travel information, rules & expectations, what to pack, food, etc. If a student or parent is unable to attend one of the briefing meetings, the family is responsible for making arrangements with their Campus Life director.
An email reminder with dates and locations will be sent to registrants to RSVP
