We spend a ton of time, money and energy on WildSide. We willingly invest heavily because we know that at WildSide two 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 students 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.
Last summer the State of Ohio handed out guidelines for camps. Round Lake and WildSide will follow these guidelines until Ohio updates them. To see the full details click the button below.
We are hopeful as things continue to improve these guidelines will be updated by the state and become less restrictive. For now in a nutshell:
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, engage with energetic worship 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 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.
WS21 is June 20-25 for Students and Leaders. Groups can arrive Sunday between 2-3:30pm and depart Friday at 5:30pm.
June 19-25 for Staff and Workcrew- arriving between 9-10am. Departure times vary for workcrew and staff.
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.
Round Lake Christian Camp is operating under the following policies for rental groups to promote the health and safety of our guests. These policies are in compliance with recommendations and requirements issued by the State of Ohio and our County Health Department. Policies are subject to change in compliance with updates from the State and Local government.
