We’ve hit our limit, good job!

This year’s Winter Camp will actually feel like winter.

Join us as we head up to Show Low, AZ and spend the weekend connecting more with God and hitting the slopes on Saturday! Sunrise Ski Resort is an awesome mountain with slopes for all levels of skill - whether you’re super good or never done it before. Don’t want to participate in snowboard/ski? Totally fine - it will still be a blast and we still want you to come and hang! Below are the pricing options:

$150 - Lift ticket + gear rental

$115 - Lift ticket only (bring your own gear)

$75 - Camper only price (no ski)

We will be partnering with Heritage Church, North Bible, and White Mountain Community Church for this awesome weekend. White Mountain Community Church has opened up their facility to house all students and staff. We'll be heading out from Illuminate at 415p on Friday, taking 15-passenger vans up the road driven by our experienced adult staff. Check in process starts at 330p. From that point on, it's Friday night session/games/hangs, all day Saturday at the slopes and back at the church at night, Sunday morning we have church and then we head out. We'll be arriving back at the church Sunday approximately 4p. Remember: Monday is OFF for your students (President's Day), so that's a day to rest up and catch up on homework. If you have any other questions, reach out to our Youth Pastor, Jonny Lutz, at or 480 437 0081.
