2 feet of snow and an epic weekend of fun. We loved having you back!
Winter Blast '22 Registration Opens December 1st

What Should we Expect?

Winter Blast is a weekend full of fun, friendship, and ministry – all taking place in the beautiful Pocono Mountains! Each day will feature large, group ministry sessions, small-group sessions, delicious meals, and block activities (including our crowd favorite snow tubing hill!).

New in 2021! Prepare yourself for the year of the Winter Blast Games – a competitive and fun adventure that will pit each cabin against each other in a series of challenges. Each cabin will compete for glory, but only one will win!

2021 Speaker & Theme

We are happy to partner with Leo Sayles for our ’21 Winter Blast event! Coach Sayles serves as the head coach of Women’s Volleyball and Associate Athletic Director for Sports Ministry at Grove City College. He has served in ministry roles for over 25 years, including 14 years in youth and children’s ministries in urban, suburban, and rural settings. 

This year, we will be exploring the idea of “Running with Purpose” – what does it mean for a Christian to have purpose in their life? When hard times come, and they will, what grounds us and pushes us to keep running forward? Why do bad things happen to us and, more importantly, why does the Bible tell us that bad things are actually good for us? 

You will learn all of this, and more, throughout the year at Streamside’s camp events! 

Camp Registration Information

Winter Blast is open to both individual campers and Junior / Senior High School groups (Ages 7-16 years old). Come with your youth group and let Streamside handle the entire weekend of programming. From activities, food, music, and Biblical curriculum – we have you covered!

Additionally each youth group will be given their own cabin accommodations where available, and our programming schedule include group-specific breakout sessions for your flexibility. This approach allows group leaders to focus on relationship-building while we handle the overhead of programming. All campers must register in our system individually, even if you are with a group.

Helpful Tips for Campers & Families

Streamside is following all CDC recommendations in dealing with COVID. Social distancing will be respected wherever possible, and much of our programming has been augmented to allow for a fun and safe experience for kids and staff.

Our mealtime protocols have also changed to ensure that all food is safe from contaminants for our guests.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our safety procedures during this time, please reach out to our main office number or email us at streamside@streamside.org.

Camper check-in is open from 6:30pm – 8:00pm on Friday February 11, 2022! When you arrive, our registration team will check your child in at our Dining Hall Porch and provide your child a wristband with their cabin leader information. From here, they will eat dinner and prepare for the first teaching and activity session!

A small meal will be provided during check-in.

Check-out occurs between 1-2pm on Sunday, February 13th. Please be prompt in picking your children up from Streamside, as our volunteers and counselors begin to head home at 2pm.

Bus Riders

Please see the ‘Bus Information’ tab for accurate bus information.

If you are riding the Streamside bus, you will need to be at Christ Baptist Church (1509 Church Lane, Philadelphia) no later than 4:15pm. The bus leaves at 4:30 sharp, so please don’t miss out on your epic camp weekend!

There is a $50 bus fee per child, which covers a round-trip from Philly to the Poconos and back.

All camper medication should be given to the bus supervisor who will deliver it to the camp nurse.

A prepared camper is a happy camper! In order to have the best possible experience, consider bringing the following items:

  • Bible
  • Toiletries, pillow, sleeping bag / blanket, towel
  • Winter clothes, boots, gloves, hat, sneakers (for indoor activities)
  • Be prepared for both indoor and outdoor (cold) activities

Winter camp is your opportunity to adventure in the snow and outdoors, so for your safety please do not bring the following items:

  • Electronics (iPad, computer, gaming consoles, etc)
  • Cell phones
  • Weapons, including pocket knives
  • Sled (we will provide)
  • Anything valuable or sentimental (things get lost at camp more than you think!)

All weather and road updates will be sent out via our Facebook page. If there is an emergency that would cancel our camp weekend, or important weather information for our families, we will post that on our Facebook page immediately. If you don’t see an update, camp is still on!

Safety is our highest concern at Streamside. All our cabin counselors, permanent staff, and temporary staff are required to go through an extensive background check process that includes spiritual fitness. Additionally, we have a camp nurse on staff to ensure that children are physically safe.

Many of our campers bring a small amount of spending money ($10-$15) for the weekend to purchase hot coco or snacks from our vending machine and snack shop.
