Arrive and Departure times:
It all starts at 7:30 pm on Friday when you check-in & move into your accommodations. Lift-Off will end at 1:30 pm on Sunday at camp and then everyone will head on back home.


Friday Night:
Start with a road trip to Qwanoes then join in on an energizing kickoff. Enjoy a giant night adventure game, music with our LiftOff band, and a challenge from a speaker. Now bring on mugup and wrap-up the night with some special youth-group hang times and a sleep-over in one of Qwanoes’s two lodges.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast and prepare for a fun-filled day at camp! From the energy of Q-Town to climbing to the clouds in the Sky-Station and zipping through the trees on the Screamer, archery, outdoor laser tag and hanging out in Club Coco…there’s going to be tons for you to enjoy with friends. In the evening get ready for our pool invasion featuring a wave pool and water slides – followed by mugup and an indoor fireside.

Look forward to another delicious breakfast, our final time of worship and spiritual challenge in Q-Town, more youth group connecting times, and the grand finale challenge! We’ll leave just after lunch.
