Summer Escape 2023 

July 23-27

Middle School Summer Escape Trip Details

July 23-27 – Ligonier Camp and Conference Center, Ligonier PA.

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.

Your children will enjoy things like: trust building & initiatives, climbing, high ropes, mountain biking & boarding, group games, cookouts, tubing, laser tag, swimming at the lake, campfires, as well as enjoying a guest speaker, small group discussion times and more!  Ligonier Camp Promotional Video

Location & Community

Summer Escape is held at Ligonier Camp and Conference Center, a Christian outdoor adventure summer camp and retreat center located in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania.

We strongly believe in the power of community, and the entire week 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.”

Cost: $350

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

Cost Includes

Transportation, lodging accommodations, meals, outdoor activities and educational programming.
