Sunday Evening Camp Update: Summer Updates, Shop Rebuild, Project Updates and What's Coming Next!


Family Camp is a long-standing tradition at Round Lake, occurring twice each year during the Memorial and Labor Day Holiday Weekends. This is a fun-filled weekend at the camp for the entire family. It is a great opportunity to join together with our brothers and sisters in Christ to relax, have fun and worship God together. Bring your own tent or RV to camp out on the grounds for the weekend. Guests provide all their own camping supplies and food. Firewood and ice are available to purchase at the event, or you may bring your own. Picnic tables and fire pits are available to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will be in-person at the event in the Snack Shack located tat the top of the hill just outside the Dining Hall.
