  • Why are there 2 camps this year?

    Due to the amazing growth of Wildfire and in order to provide more opportunities for students to experience Wildfire we have made the decision to hold two camps with the same great teachings, worship, and fun! We strongly recommend for the best experience that students choose the camp associated with the LCBC location they regularly attend each week.

  • How do you ensure my student’s safety?

    We bring along trained medical and security teams to Wildfire. These teams are comprised of volunteers who are professionally trained to handle emergency situations. The medical team is headed by professionals that are well trained in emergency and general medical care for all participants. The security team is headed by LCBC’s Director of Security.

    Please note that we generally do not hold on to and cannot dispense the prescriptions that your student brings and require that students be able to self-administer their medication as prescribed. We ask that they keep the medication with them and take it as prescribed. If you have concerns regarding your student’s medical or physical needs we ask that you reach out to your campus staff upon registration so that we can support your student to the best of our ability.

  • What are the sleeping arrangements like and who will oversee my student?

    Students are housed in cabins with 10-14 other students and trained and background checked leaders and/or staff. While we make every attempt to house students with their LIFE Group and/or their rooming request we believe that all cabin groups will facilitate the best possible experience for any student. Ultimately, we attempt to provide the best and safest experience for all students at Wildfire.

  • What kind of activities will my student participate in?

    Each day students will participate in gatherings where they will hear Biblically based messages and participate in worship with our amazing band. Students will also be able to join in team challenges, adventure activities, Time with God, and cabin time where they will process all that they are learning together with their leader and peers

  • What does my student need to bring?

    • 4 sets of clothes (include an outfit that can get messy/ruined!)
    • Swimsuit (modest one-piece suit, please!)
    • Sleeping bag and pillow
    • Toiletries (make sure to include sunscreen!)
    • Towel
    • Paper, Bible, and pen
    • Spending money for the camp store & snack shop (optional)
    • Refillable Water Bottle!

  • Can my student bring their cell phone?

    We discourage students from bringing their cell phones to Wildfire as it is a great time to “unplug.” However, the final decision lies with the parent/guardian. If you believe that your student is capable of being responsible with their device, they may use it at appropriate times (for example: taking pictures, free time, Bible reading). We believe that it is important for students to learn how to appropriately engage with their devices, and our leaders aim to help guide our students to learn how to do so; however, if cell phones are used inappropriately, they may be confiscated. All confiscated devices will be returned at the end of the weekend.

  • How can I follow along throughout the week?

    You can follow along with us all throughout the week via social media:

    Your ticket includes 3 nights, 4 days, and 9 meals (including a chicken sandwich meal during travel the first night) at the amazing NorthBay Adventure Camp in Maryland. It also includes transportation, all activities, gatherings, and fun surprises!

    A portion of our yearly Collide budget supports Wildfire as ticket prices do not cover all expenses. If you would like to understand where our costs go please email
