this list of ideas for some creative ways to help pay for your trip!

Additionally, scholarships are available based on need and availability. For more information about how to apply, email Tyler Lemmel on the Traders Point Youth team at tlemmel@tpcc.org.

During the week, everyone will be in a group where they can hang out and talk about what they’re learning. Groups have anywhere from six to twelve students and are led by leaders who have gone through Traders Point Youth’s onboarding process, which includes a background check, staff interview, orientation, and training. There will be a minimum of one adult for every four students on the trip. If you’d like to learn more about leading at MIX, connect with the youth pastor at your campus by filling out this form and selecting the topic “Youth.”

Rooms at Country Lake are dorm style with a shared bathroom in each dorm. The dorms are air conditioned and house 34 people.

There is a space to list friend and leader requests on the registration—this is the only place requests will be taken. We’ll do our very best to assure each student is in a group and room with at least one of their requests. Due to the volume of participants, once assignments have been made there will be no changes.

We will take charter buses with bathrooms to and from Middle School Camp. Buses will depart from and return to Traders Point Christian Church Northwest. Country Lake is approximately two hours away.

Two forms are required for participation in Middle School Camp. Forms are due by Sunday, May 14.
