Our Gathering at Cross Roads
July 24 – 28, 2022
For youth groups including campers who have completed grades 8-12 and congregational leaders
This is a special offering for Summer 2022! In February, it was announced that the ELCA Youth Gathering planned for this summer in Minneapolis was canceled. In order to still provide the youth in NJ with a summer experience filled with faith and fellowship, Cross Roads is working alongside the Synod to create “Our Gathering at Cross Roads.”
Groups from congregations around the state are invited to join us for a time filled with the best aspects of the Gathering combined with the best of a camp experience: social justice, community service, Bible study, worship, and more! Campers will come away from Our Gathering with new friendships with youth from other congregations as well as strengthened bonds with those from their own church group. It is also a unique opportunity for pastors and lay leaders to build relationships and engage in faith formation together with their middle and high school age campers.
COST: $450 for each youth and adult participant
