Summer Young Life Camping

"If Young Life outreach camp is 'the best week of a kids life,' then a week at Pioneer Plunge will be the most significant."

Plunge at a Glance

Every adventure camping trip in Young Life is designed to facilitate belief, growth and maturity in Jesus Christ in a small group setting. Our goal during each camp week is to lead campers toward a better understanding of themselves, their peers, and most importantly the amazing truth of our Lord Jesus.  There are so many ties to The Gospel in the wilderness and it is our job to point to Christ through creation, community and solitude.

Our desire is for campers to grow closer to Jesus and each other, and be equipped to return home with a renewed passion for the Gospel and a new understanding of what it means to live life to the fullest. Throughout the week, kids experience a blend of community and solitude as they spend time sharing their life with one another while they build, cook and laugh together. Each evening, group discussions are held based around the topics of leadership, prayer, solitude, community, and discipleship in order to encounter Jesus on a deeper level.



Upon arrival to Pioneer Plunge, each camper will undergo a safety training by our staff. Young Life and Pioneer Plunge maintain the highest level of safety and standards in operation of all of our activities at camp. Pioneer Plunge's activities are facilitated by trained and experienced staff. Your child will be in good hands while at Pioneer Plunge. In the event of an unexpected accident, our staff are trained in Wilderness First Aid and there is always a qualified medical professional on call to tend to your child's needs. Also, if needed, the local hospital is only a short drive away.
