Campership Information

Cross Trails Ministry provides a number of retreats for youth, adults, and families
to spend time at camp all year round! Programmed retreats give you the opportunity
to come and relax at Camp Chrysalis and Ebert Ranch. In addition to retreats at the
camp sites, Cross Trails can come to your congregation with the “Cross Trails Comes
to You” program. Take a look at the descriptions of our retreats and programs below.

Day Events

Household maximum applies to families residing under the same roof.

Schedule your own Church Picnic! 

Congregation are invited to bring their church family to their very own “Church Picnic” at either Camp Chrysalis or Ebert Ranch.  Families can safely socialize as they hike, make crafts, shoot archery, try the ropes course, play camp style yard games or just enjoy time together in the beauty of the outdoors.  At Camp Chrysalis, canoeing and catch and release fishing are possible, and at Ebert Ranch making and sharing horse treats, and playing ranch-style frisbee golf can be part of the fun.  Camp staff would be happy to plan a worship for you, or you can create your own, and record it for members back home.  Have families bring their own picnic lunch and camp will do the rest to help bring your community back together after a time apart.

COST: 
$200 for up to 25 people
$375 for up to 50 people
$550 for up to 75 people

A camp lunch can be provided for an additional fee.

High School students are having to make decisions about their life farther and farther in advance.

Join other high schoolers for a time of faith-filled camp fun.  Choose to come for the day or the whole weekend.  Cross Trails COVID protocols for retreats, including masks, sanitizing and appropriate distancing will be followed by all.
