Labor Day Family Camp 2020
August 19-21 and August 21-23

Big Sandy Camp is so excited to offer Family Camp in 2020! This is a great weekend getaway for your whole family to experience camp. We are restructuring Labor Day Family Camp this year to offer two sessions! The first will be a midweek session, offered from Wednesday August 19 - Friday August 21, and the second will be a weekend session, offered from Friday August 21 - Sunday August 23.
Your family can enjoy all the fun activities that Big Sandy has to offer! Join us for fun in the sun down by the beach and ride our giant water slide. Make time to fly down our 750 ft zipline. Enjoy archery, knockerball, and shoot hoops outside or in the gym. Don’t forget camp has great activities for little kids, too! Bubblefest, chalk party, and the BSC express are great for all the littlest campers.
Visit our website, www.bigsandycamp.com, to register!
Family Camp is all about having a fun, safe place to learn about God as a family. Childcare is provided during chapel sessions for children 12 years old and younger. Teens stay in the main service with the adults. Come experience the beauty of God’s creation and dig into his word as a family at Big Sandy Camp in 2020!

Pets Policy

To best accomplish our mission and to comply with Aitkin County’s Youth Camp ordinance, no pets of any kind are allowed on the main campus area of Big Sandy Camp. To comply with state and federal law, service animals that have been trained to perform tasks or do work for the benefit of a person with a disability are permitted on the property. The tasks or work the animal does must be directly related to the persons disability. Animals sometimes referred to as emotional support animals that may provide a sense of safety, companionship or comfort are by law, not considered service animals as they are not individually trained to perform a specific task and are therefore not permitted on campus.
