On this trip students will meet COTN’s in-country staff, visit schools and clinics, and ask questions with the intention of discovering how they can partner with COTN in their mission. This is an opportunity to join COTN on this trip to the Dominican Republic to discover how God is mobilizing a movement of people to raise children who will transform their nations!

Middle Summer Camp | July 30-August 3!

Middle Summer Camp registration is now open and we’d love to see your 6th, 7th, or 8th grader join us for one of the best weeks they will have all summer. Monday, July 30 through Friday, August 3rd, we’re heading to Camp Cascades. Your middle schooler will be having fun with friends, playing crazy games, swimming, hiking, climbing the ropes course, eating fun food, being launched on “the blob”, making lots of noise, and having the time of their lives.

While I believe that attending church and weekly youth group gatherings are important, I have learned over the years how vital a week of camp can be in the life of a middle schooler. For many, a week of camp gives young people a very unique opportunity to experience God and to hear His voice in a way that is unlikely to happen anywhere else. That’s the reason why we create camp experiences like this and that’s why our middle school volunteers and staff are so looking forward to spending time with your son or daughter at camp.

Cost: $475

If you have any questions about camp, please reach out to Nate Rice or Alayna Brand

Price: $499

High School Extreme Week is August 5-10!

Experience something legendary: Extreme Week 2018. Over five days on the Klamath River, you will concur the rapids of dragon’s tooth, sing underneath thousands of stars, make life-long friendships, and discover a God whose love is transforming.

Students will leave early August 5th on a bus and in vans to drive down to Happy Camp, CA. There, we spend our days rafting on the Klamath River, eating river tacos, and hiking. In the evening, we will gather to learn from each other, hear inspirational messages from the gospel of Luke, and respond to God through song, worship stations, and conversation. We arrive back in Bellevue, WA, late on August 10th.

For students entering grades 9-12 in the 2018-19 school year.

Cost: $499

Registration is now open!
