Who Should Attend?

What Should I Expect?



Advance Registration Cost:

Advance Registration:

Each student under the age of 18 must submit a registration form with Parental Signature giving permission for you to attend. You must do this even if you register on-line or call our office to register. The ways you can register for the Advance:

Alpine Ministries Option:

Several groups are coming early to get the “camp experience” prior to the Advance. Alpine Ministries is a ministry offering Whitewater Rafting, Caving, High Ropes, Team Building and more. Groups can minimize travel costs and reduce the need for two sets of leaders by combining these events. Groups electing to come early can tailor-make the Camp segment to suit their schedule. You can even plan an Appalachian Ministry Mission Trip from the same location. For more details contact Alpine Adventures by clicking on option 3 below.

Cancellation Policy:

Canceled registrations are refundable (less a $20 processing fee) up to TBD. After that date, registrations (less a $20 processing fee) can be used by you or another person as a credit for any Advance within one year of this Advance.  After TBD any remaining credit will be forfeited. You must call our office to notify us of any cancellation or substitution before the Advance.

MARTINSBURG WV: "Praise The Lord, one saved. Two in our group surrendered to preach, 5 surrendered their lives to the Lord, Amen." 

CARNEYS POINT NJ: We saw God answer prayer, convict of sin, bring assurance of salvation, renew and strengthen their resolve to live for Christ, stir their hearts to evangelize, get right with their parents (there were phone calls made to home about this), reevaluate their priorities (selfishness was seen as a sinful deterrent to be repented of and Christ to be pursued) all these things God dealt with us at this advance.

BLUE RIDGE VA: We had one get assurance of salvation... 4 surrendered to full-time Christian service in our group! Praise God for what He is doing! Just had an awesome testimony time too!

WESTIN WV: 2 called to preach one young lady surrendered to missions. Breakthroughs all the way through. Student-led fast tomorrow for God to save someone in service Sunday!

MOREHEAD CITY NC: Had one 17 year old young man who wanted to confirm his call to the ministry. Caroline had already surrendered but has renew excitement in that direction due to the LORD'S work in these services. We have had great prayer times.
