WildSide 2019 is going to be a life-changing week for your students and leaders.
We spend a ton of time, money and energy on WildSide. We willingly invest heavily because we know that at WildSide three things are going to happen.
First, students are going to meet Jesus. No other relationship in their lives is more important. All people desperately need Christ. At WildSide we make sure student have a chance to meet Him.
Secondly, Leaders are going to be empowered to lead their students and form life-changing relationships with them. One week at WildSide is a year's worth of relationship building.
Thirdly, Leaders are going to grow in their leadership capacity. They are intentionally invested in, encouraged and empowered. We use our week at WildSide to develop the leadership skills of the volunteers and church staff that attend.
WildSide is open to students entering sixth grade thru students going into ninth grade.
We also ask high school students to attend WildSide and work behind the scenes on Workcrew. This is a solid mission and leadership experience for high school students.
If your group has high school students serving as middle school leaders they are also welcome to attend. We call these high school students "student leaders". Student Leaders can co-lead a cabin of students with an adult leader.
WildSide is a week long camp for middle school students. The week is filled with off the chart fun and amazing opportunities to connect with Jesus.
Each day students dig into God's Word during DEVOS, hear encouraging and challenging messages about Jesus during Club and have time to talk and process what God is doing in their life during small groups.
Leaders and students get to connect throughout the day by enjoying all the camp has to offer on the waterfront, in the gym and through the crazy-fun activities our program team dreams up.
WildSide has been held at Round Lake Christian Camp since it started in 2009. They are a great partner in ministry with RippleFX. Their staff is amazing, the food is great and the accommodations are some of the best we have found.
