JOURNEY CrossRoads Summer 2021
It is fun! It is safe! It cultivates relationships with Jesus and others that are transformative and lasting! We believe that following Jesus is not a one-time decision or something relegated to Sunday mornings, but a grand adventure we actively participate in through every season of life. CrossRoads’ goal through Journey is to introduce and strengthen faith skills in a Christ- centered, missions focused environment.
“...the Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” – Deuteronomy 31:8
Mission Focus: Refugee Ministries
How is Journey Different Than Traditional Summer Camp at CrossRoads?
Instead of sending your camper to CrossRoads, families and churches are invited to bring their children and youth to CrossRoads and journey together. Their awesome summer staff will program and lead daily activities. Adult leaders are welcome to participate in all activities, but will have opportunities during the day for personal retreat, checking email, and enjoying community with other leaders. Adult leaders will be responsible for minors from their family or church during meals, evening activities, and overnight lodging. This is a great opportunity for parents and churches to get to know CrossRoads better, and creates a common experience to grow in relationship with one another!
Who Can Journey in Summer 2021?
The program is specifically designed for guests ages 8 to 17. Most aspects of the program can be adapted for younger children, but additional adult support during program may be required from the family/church.
The suggested adult to minor ratio for churches/groups is 1 same gender leader per 8 minors (ex: a church group of 10 girls and 5 boys would require at least 2 female and 1 male adults).
Guests may be grouped by age/developmental level for certain elements of the program (ex: bible study) to ensure the content is engaging, appropriate, and helpful for all participants.
• Session 1: June 22 - 26
• Session 2: June 29 - July 3
• Session 3: July 6 - 10
• Session 4: July 13 - 17
• Session 5: July 20 - 24

CrossRoads is committed to providing healthful, safe ministry this summer. All elements of the program are designed to be held outside with the exception of meals and lodging. It is out of this desire to limit exposure and minimize risk that families/churches are asked to “self-staff” those aspects of Journey. Appropriate screening, masking, social distancing, and disinfecting/sanitizing procedures will be maintained throughout the program. Learn more about CrossRoads’ COVID-19 response practices on our website.
