RIOT GREAT XSCAPE 2015
Wasco County Fairgrounds, Tygh Valley, OR
For students entering grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 in the fall.
Brace yourself. This summer is going to rock your world. Are you ready for something epic? Something you’ll never forget? Come with us to Great Xscape 2015. We’re headed to the beautiful, lush, paradise of Tygh Valley, Oregon. This escape will set the stage for a week packed FULL of fun, memories, and life-changing opportunities. The best news of all – you’ll make friends, hang out with an awesome small group leader, and have an unforgettable encounter with the Living God who made you and loves you! We are gonna do everything we can to make sure YOU and your friends don’t miss out on this week!
Great Xscape is a five day camp set in the heart of the great outdoors – from extreme rafting, to rock climbing, to team competitions, and many other challenges that will pave the way for your world to be rocked. You’ll never be the same. Get ready for an escape you’ll never forget. Are you ready?
$175 Everything included—rafting, rock-climbing, food, fun, etc. We might be crazy, but this is the cheapest summer camp we’ve done in YEARS! We’re doing everything we can to make sure camp is affordable, because we don’t want ANYONE to miss it! Camp tuition and registration due by July 18 (departure day).
Worried about how you’re going to pay for camp? Rather than giving out scholarships this year, we are offering a “pay as you go” plan. By releasing our promotional materials in April, we are giving you four months to pay your camp tuition little by little. When you turn in your camp registration, simply pay whatever you can at the time ($10 minimum deposit), and then pay in monthly installments between now and July 18. Your camp tuition must be paid in full by July 18. We are hoping this gives you plenty of time to plan, save, earn money, and not feel the burden of having to pay for camp all in one month. If you have further questions, you can contact Kristin Engelking by calling the church office @ 503-581-2477.
*If you are a family with multiple students attending our Student Ministries camps this summer, please contact us about our “family rate.”
- Final registration opens at 12pm on July 18. Buses will leave the church parking lot at 1 pm (don’t miss the bus).
- Buses will return from camp by 5pm on Wednesday, July 22.

We’re excited to announce that our Great Xscape speaker is Steven Dowling. Steven serves as the Director of Middle School Ministry at Summit View Church, and he was actually at RIOT intern at Morning Star for three years before that. Here’s a little introduction from Steven, himself:
“Hey-o! I’m Steven! I became a follower of Jesus my senior year of high school, and I graduated from Sprague (class of ’09)! My wife, Sharon, is the coolest, and we’ve been married since 2013! I snowboard, camp, and hike whenever I can, and I’m also a huge coffee nerd. Also, the Seahawks, Trailblazers, and Oregon State Beavers are my teams! Can’t wait to spend the week with you guys at GX 2015, I know God has awesome things in store for us!”
