Join us for a fun and relaxing weekend at Crystal Lake Camps! You’ll enjoy some of CLC’s camp activities and get to spend time together!

About this Event

Getting There:

As most camps go, CLC is not located right next to an airport 🙂 We would love for you to fly into and out of Harrisburg (MDT), as we’ll hire an airport shuttle to camp. Because it’s a smaller airport, it will seem a bit more expensive, but there is transportation assistance!

  • Arrival time: around/before 5pm. If you fly in earlier, we will pick everyone up at 5:30pm and drive the 2hrs to CLC. Everyone will need to wear masks and be distanced in the van.
  • Departure time: book your ticket for anytime after 3pm. After our church service, we’ll bring everyone to the airport. Everyone will need to wear masks and be distanced in the van.

IF you are driving, you can arrive anytime after 1pm on Friday, and depart anytime on Sunday. Driving in is the recommended option at this time.

What to bring:

  • No fewer than 3 double-layered masks
  • Beach/swim towel
  • Swimsuit
  • Clothes for running around/clothes you may not care so much about
  • Sturdy shoes for running around and hiking
  • Sneakers for the High Ropes Course
  • Comfy slides/flipflops/sandels for relaxing
  • Wool socks and athletic socks
  • LAYERS! It’s really chilly in the mornings and evenings, and warms up during the day.
  • Puffy jacket, hat, pants
  • T-shirts, athletic shorts/crops
  • Long pants (or leggings) for the High Ropes Course
  • Hair ties for long hair
  • Comfy pjs
