JULY 24-26

20/20 Vision

Purpose refocused

The time is short, and there are limited campsites, so please register early!

Forgetting those things which are behind, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13, 14

God has for each of us a clear vision, an elevated purpose. He wants those who will "press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Today, as young adults, our vision can be set! Our purpose can be firm! But is our purpose firm in Christ? Is our vision clear? And what is our purpose? How can we live to glorify God in the 21st century?

Do you want 20/20 vision? Come join us this year at Barlow Group Camp where we will have our purpose refocused and our vision set on higher things.

This year's GYC West is being held at Barlow Group Camp, just south of Ruth Lake in Trinity County California.

Be sure to bring an active mind, your Bible, and notepaper as this year's content is designed to bring you not only closer to our Savior, but also to give you the tools you need to become a strong worker for Him at your home and at your church.

Tent camping is recommended and RVs are welcome - there are no on-site cabins or other lodgings. Each campsite is limited to a maximum of 8 people and up to 2 vehicles.

Please review the campground rules for detailed site rules.

Pricing and site notes

Registration is $29 per person for the whole weekend.

Those who want to just come up Sabbath, please register for the weekend - even if you don't want to stay the night.

Sabbath lunch will be provided. Please bring meal supplies for yourself and your group for all other meals.

The on-site water is potable, but not recommended, so bring plenty of water.

Attended campfires are allowed within designated fire pits, though you'll have to supply your own firewood.

Expect mountain trail hiking, so pack what you'll need for it - especially water.

Due to California's restrictions, we will be practicing social distancing and wearing face masks where required. Please bring and wear a face mask when needed. While the sun and fresh air have both healing and sanitizing properties, we should strive to be both model citizens and strong witnesses for God through the practice of the health ministry that we as a people have been given.

Please be aware that we will be recording and photographing our events, so please dress modestly.

Social Media
