An Action-Packed Weekend for Junior High Teens in Grades 6 through 9!

What's Meltdown?

It's action-packed. It's snow-filled. It's fuel for your faith. It's just what you've been looking for. 

The wintry environment is perfect for navigating down snow-covered hills on skis or a snowboard. Maybe a tube run down Bullet or Big Bend is more your speed. Off the hill, you can explore the acre after acre of forest via cross-country skis or snowshoes. After a day in the outdoors, you can grab a gourmet hot chocolate and hang out with friends in front of one of our fireplaces.  

Meltdown campers will be equipped and challenged through Bible teaching during weekend sessions. Trained, mission-driven counselors will lead cabin groups through devotions and cabin activities throughout the weekend. During free time, campers can take advantage of many fun-filled winter programs areas.
