July 8-12, 2024 • GENERATE Camp • Estes Park, CO

Get ready for PEPC Students Summer Camp 2024!

We are heading to Estes Park, CO on July 8, 2024, for a week-long camp experience with over a thousand other students from all around the country at a camp called GENERATE. This camp is strategic and intentional to create experiences where the name of Jesus is lifted up, where the Gospel is proclaimed through the preaching and studying of the Word, and where not only are students encouraged to take the next step in their faith journey, but the challenge and opportunity to be a person of global impact is clear. Not only are there plenty of faith-growing opportunities, but the FUN is endless!

  • WHEN | July 8-12, 2024 (Monday 11:00am – Friday 3:00pm)

  • WHO | All current 6th-12th grade students and incoming 5th-grade students

FINAL DAY OF CAMP ACTIVITY

On Friday, July 12 we will have two options for students to participate in before we come back home. These options are 100% optional but if your student wants to participate, these activities will cost additional money.

The two options are as follows:

  • Horseback Riding at Sombrero Ranch in Estes (pricing details are still in the works but the expected cost will be between $50-$100 per student.
  • Water Activities at Lake Estes Marina Activity options range from paddleboarding to kayaking or just hanging out at the lake
    • The cost for the water activities is between $20-$30.
  • If you do not want your student(s) to participate in either of these activities (for financial or personal reasons), they can hang out at the lake with our group where there is a snack shop and other lake activities that don’t cost money.

Payment for these activities will come at a later date when reservations for these activities are fully secured.
