Get your youth group on an adventure this summer or winter!
Do you long to see the youth in your church grow closer to Christ? Do you want a place away from normal media, peer influences and hectic schedules? Do you love having crazy fun? Fort has been partnering with youth groups for over 30 years to expand the reach of your ministry.
Summer Adventure Trips
Getting out in nature is the perfect way to leave technology aside and set up the place for young and old to hear from God while building really deep relationships. For 30 years, Fort has been doing custom-crafted adventure trips (hiking, canoeing, white-water rafting, etc.). All you need to do is show up with your group of 10-60 campers. We have all the supplies, tasty food, adventure opportunities and trained staff to lead your youth group on 3 to 7 day trips, including stays at our modern Adventure Outpost Base Camp with a brand new kitchen. Your focus can be ministering to students and leaders. We will work alongside you to make it work well.

Hey Youth Pastor, get rid of all that stress! Youth Pastors are hard-working, tired people! That’s why they love Fort. For over 3 decades, we’ve been providing the place, the fun, the great food and even the speaker & music (no additional cost)* so that they can invest in their students. Group leaders are surprised at how much we do to make a Winter Retreat easy, fun, and affordable (many activities are included with your fees, and our prices match what other camps are offering)*.
One other hard part of a winter retreat is finding photos, videos, registration forms, posters, etc. to advertise your retreat weeks before you come. We have an answer! The Fort Marketing Department is glad to assist you with some free tools you can use on Social Media or on your church walls to promote your retreat. Let us help.
Case Story: Why would one Indiana church drive nine hours for a Winter Weekend Retreat and have their camper numbers grow year after year? We have become part of the spiritual formation of the whole church. Their winter weekend has literally impacted their entire community as they invite multiple churches and un-churched youth with them. There’s just something special about time away, Up North, in the winter, at Fort.

We give these to you at no additional charge at most retreats because we want you enjoying creation: horseback rides, sleigh rides, cross country skis, ice skates, snowshoes, tubes, lantern and nature hikes, great speakers and music for your group and much more. Give us a call!
