Need a spiritual JOLT before starting college? Want to experience Camp Timberline in a whole new way? Want to make friends, laugh until you cry, and make memories that will last a lifetime? If yes, Shift is the experience for you. We are excited for all Juniors and Seniors in high school to participate in Shift! The three pillars of Shift are Serving, Growing, and Adventuring!
Mark 10:45 says, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many." We believe that the value of a learned servant's heart is unmatchable. As a "Shifter," you will be a part of a small team who will help in many areas from dishes to party set up. We believe that through these hours spent doing non-glamorous behind-the-scenes jobs you will find joy in unexpected places and you will be changed.
We hope each Shifter will grow as a person during their time at Camp T. Through daily structured Bible studies and an hour each day of "solo time," each camper will have the opportunity to decide for themselves what they believe about Jesus, the Bible, and other topics before entering college. With the guidance of incredible and spiritually mature counselors, Shift will be an encouraging but also challenging two weeks. We want each camper to not only think about Christ, but learn how to engage in a daily relationship with Jesus.
Living in the woods for 2 weeks with your new-found best friends is by itself quite the adventure. On top of that, each week the Shifters go on several off-site excursions. From rock climbing and mountain biking to paddle boarding and tubing, you will gain new experiences and make memories that will last a lifetime! Together we will learn how to soak all of the goodness and fun out of life!
