We are fired up that you will be coming to the Northwest Youth Camp!
We are going to the Twinlow Camp & Retreat Center, located on pine-covered grounds on glistening Lower Twin Lake approximately 5 miles north of Rathdrum, Idaho. Twinlow Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). ACA accreditation offers assurance that Twinlow complies with up to 300 health, safety, and program quality standards. On August 11, 2013 youth from all over the Northwest are coming together for a family reunion! No wait…a family party! No wait…its Youth Camp!
There’s an ol’ saying at NW Youth Camp… “Ain’t no party like a Northwest Party cause a Northwest party don’t stop!” Translation: “We enjoy spending time together so much as family of Churches that we never want it to end.” Campers, counselors and parents are you fired up!?! High powered lessons, sports, challenge course, ping pong, kayaking, good food, hanging out at the flag pole amphitheater and beach front swimming are a few of the things that we’ll be a part of at camp!
As you all know, Jermaine and Stephanie Peacock have moved their family to San Diego to serve as Youth and Family Leaders in that church. We want to say “THANK YOU!” to the Peacocks for their years of service. We appreciate the many ways in which they tirelessly served our campers. We pray for God’s blessing in their new endeavor, and we surely benefit from the great foundation they laid with the Northwest Youth Camp. Prior to their leaving, when asked who they would suggest to act as new directors for NWYC, they nominated the Overstreets! We have accepted the role, and promise to do our very best to pick up where they left off.
We’re praying for “a Jesus impact” this year for all that attend whether camper, counselor or leader. The Northwest Staff are praying for youth all over the Northwest and Canada. As camp directors we have been praying fervently for God to work in a powerful way in the lives of all the campers, counselors, and staff of the Northwest Youth Camp. We encourage you to pray as well and to make personal decisions before arriving at camp regarding what you want to accomplish spiritually. We promise to do whatever it takes to help you achieve your goal and to make this one of the most fulfilling and fun session ever!
Please pray for us, and pray that God will bless the NWYC in 2013! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you.
God bless you,
Daren & Karla Overstreet
