Celebrate Your Family

An Island Adventure for the Whole Family

We invite you to the re-launching of CBS Family Camp. This is a chance for guests to unplug (literally) and get away to take full advantage of the rest and relaxation that awaits all in our private cove. Our desire is to honor the long history and  legacy of family oriented camps at CBS by continuing to provide a life-changing event for families.

Two Sessions to Choose From

  • CBS Family Camp - Session 1 - June 24-30, 2018
  • CBS Family Camp - Session 2 - July 1-7, 2018

This 6-day, 5-night vacation will have programming specific for adults and children. We will have a daily speaker, discussion sessions and time in the Word for adults. Children will have age-appropriate, Bible stories and activities.  Our schedule will allow enough flexibility for guests to build their own adventure, selecting from a myriad of self-service activities available in camp:

  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Ping pong
  • Horseshoes
  • Shuffle board
  • Frisbee golf
  • Miles of hiking trails 

You'll also have the option to partake in afternoon waterfront activities:

  • Swimming
  • Snorkeling
  • Kayaking
  • Paddle boarding

If you love to fish, don't forget to bring your own pole and tackle and camp will provide frozen squid for bait.

Nightly beachside campfires will give guests a chance to unwind, relish the amazing ocean view and share s'mores, impromptu songs, and stories.

On Wednesday, everyone will have the option to participate in a morning hike into Avalon and revel in some of the adventures our little island tourist town has to offer. If you are not able to hike you can purchase passage on a water taxi that will pick you up at camp, shortly after breakfast. A water taxi will bring back all guests from town in the late afternoon.

This is a Week for Everybody

  • Singles who just want to get away for some quiet reflection and opportunities to make new friends.
  • Couples who need a peaceful get-away to spend time together.
  • Families so parents and kids can focus on creating special memories. 
  • Single parents who need to be surrounded by those who understand  their unique challenges.
  • Grandparents who want to expose their grandchildren to the truth of the gospel.
  • Multi-generational families looking for a special environment to invest in their relationships.

Discover how energizing and refreshing a week away on the island can be with the extended family of God, fellowshipping together and deepening your personal relationship with the Lord!
