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

Virtual Talk: “What are we here to do?” by Nate Frederick
Jun 15 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

Download Flyer Here

Jesus often said that he came here for a specific reason. The clarity of his mission and purpose was unparalleled. In this lecture, we’re going to aim to “have the same mindset as Christ Jesus” (Phil. 2:5) and get in tune with the Christly mission that brings healing and peace like nothing else can.

This lecture event is co-sponsored by First Church of Christ Scientist, Laguna Niguel, CA and DiscoveryBound Outreach. We hope you all are able to join us for this inspiring talk.

8:30pm/7:30pm/6:30pm/5:30pm

This lecture is intended for 20s/30s, but all are welcome.

Nate Frederick, is a Christian Science practitioner who splits his time between Boston, MA and beautiful Boothbay, Maine. Nate loves traveling and sharing insights into the universal power of God, and how this power can bring about good in our individual lives. As a media producer, Nate created the award-winning “Daily Lift” podcast for The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, the headquarters of the Christian Science church. Nate loves music, being out in nature and baking cakes for his friends. But he would say that his greatest passion is to help people through prayer.
