Warrior's Journey

Family Camp | August 22-25, 2024

The Vision

The mission of the Warrior’s Journey organization is to help warriors and their families discover and grow in their journey with God by providing contextual opportunities to participate in an active faith community of believers.  Far too often, the sacrifice of the families of the enlisted Men and Women who are called overseas to serve go totally unnoticed and often many families become another causality of war.  Missed birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries add up and the transition from warrior back to civilian can be hard for soldiers and for their families who must readjust as well.  But our hearts say no more!  God has a better plan.  He has a better purpose for your family. By bringing together resources, godly guidance, and quality time for families in the fun and safe environment that only a camp atmosphere can deliver, our goal for the Warrior’s Journey Family Camp is to unite and restore military families that are in or still feeling this transition back to civilian life.

Activities & 

There is a plethora of activities at camp for any family to enjoy during activity and free times!


All meals will be provided in the Lost Valley dining hall. Our buffet, all-you-can-eat style of dining is great for the whole family.


Motel-style, bunk lodging, and campsites are available based on your family’s preference. 


Be ready for powerful worship time, testimony, and encouragement.  We are excited about this great lineup of speakers.

Small Groups

Warriors, spouses, and youth/kids will get a chance to connect with others going through the same situations.

Camp Activities

Families can spend their free time playing games, relaxing at the beachfront or on the water, challenging themselves with high adventure activities, riding around the go-cart track, enjoying treats from the Lost Valley Snack Shop and more!
