Adventure Retreats

Ideal for: Families, Couples and Children       |       Ages: All Ages       |       Dates: Year Round

Come together, by getting lost in the right direction.

Leave the road behind and take the trails.

Want to do something different as a family? Join us for an all-inclusive Family Camp weekend in the wild where you will experience life change together and create memories through high adventure activities and intentional family time with a Christ-centered focus. Black Diamond offers a variety of themed family weekends throughout the year.

Adventure is the best kind of family bonding.

Whether it’s a much-needed getaway for your immediate family, or you’re planning a milestone reunion, we are all about families growing together and making memories through exciting outdoor adventures and experiential learning. When they spend time in nature playing and overcoming challenges – they grow closer and learn new things about each other. By infusing the camp experience with Biblical truths, real relationships emerge and adventures become life lessons that provide opportunities for spiritual growth. Camp may end, but the wealth of knowledge they gain can impact their lives and communities forever.


Dates: April 23-25, 2021  |  Ages: 8 – 18 

Take a weekend off from your busy lives and come enjoy an adventure filled weekend at Black Diamond Camps with you and your daughters. Enjoy the fresh spring air while doing an assortment of our adventure activities! This is a perfect time to grow closer together as mother and daughter through intentional time, lively activities, and sitting in on sessions about empowering women and their role/identity with Christ.

Father & Daughter

You don’t want to miss out on this fun and memorable weekend!

Father & Son
