6/22/2020 UPDATE:
 
As of the writing of this message (6/22/2020 at 11:19am), LIFT is still happening! Here’s what we know:
Pierce County, where Sound View Camp is located, is still on track to be in PHASE 4 of Governor Inslee’s “Safe Start” plan for dealing with COVID-19. Under the requirements for PHASE 4, we believe we are still able to have a fully involved week of camp on August 9-14. Registration will be up soon, so stay tuned! The cost for camp this year will be $250 per student, with a discount of $20 per additional student from the same household. 
 
This year, we plan on offering a limited number of scholarships, both full and partial. Please do not let money be the thing that keeps you from coming to camp. That being said, any amount that can be paid will help! Many people are experiencing hardships due to COVID. Our ministry is no exception. 
 
 
WHAT IS LIFT?
LIFT is a 6 day, 5 night long summer experience for teens that allows them to unplug and be truly disconnected from the world around them, and focus on the only thing that matters: God. We believe that included with this goal, is also a focus on fun, creativity, and authenticity. Students that go to our camp have an absolute blast and can’t wait for the next year. We create memories that last a lifetime.
 
 
WHAT HAPPENS?
COME. RELAX. DISCONNECT. ENGAGE. BE SPONTANEOUS! We have contests with sand sculptures on the beach, chalk art, skits, a talent show, a BBQ on the beach and an EPIC obstacle course!  When campers arrive, they meet their cabinmates, and later on are introduced to their teams. They will spend significant time with those two groups throughout camp. There is freetime as well.
 
All campers will be placed with great counselors who love them and have been personally vetted and professionally background checked by WayPoint Church, and share the same concern for your students’ well being as I do.
 
Finally, each student gets a sweet LIFT2020 Hoodie!

THE BEST PART OF LIFT
Sound View Camp is loaded with trails for hiking, fields for playing, and a beach with a dock for boating and swimming during free time. We play loads of sports, and make safety a priority, especially given the circumstances. But the best part? The teaching. Speakers at LIFT bring the truth of God’s word to the forefront, and we provide tools and workshops to put that knowledge to action. We BELONG to the family of God, and together, are a part of something much bigger than ourselves.
