What is E3?

Many of our local churches are too small to have a youth program of their own; that's why we created the E3 Youth Initiative. E3 is a once a month gathering at Lake Ellen Camp for all youth in grades 7-12.

This school year we will be going through a video series called TrueU. TrueU is a precursor to the in-depth study presented in Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project® of how to live out a Christian worldview.  The first set in the series tackles the question: Does God Exist? We believe that our youth in today's culture are yearning for understanding of what they believe and why they should believe it.

Each E3 event features fellowship, great activities, and a snack. Bring your friends, youth group, youth leaders.

Cost: $5.00 per person  (This helps cover camp expenses and the snack. If any youth cannot afford this, they are still encouraged to come!)


Events begin at 1:30 pm and end at 4:00 pm


1:30-2:30 - games

2:30-2:50 - snack

2:50-4:00 - TrueU - Does God Exist?

Permission slip and agreement

Any time we have just youth on the grounds without their parents we need a health form and permission slip. In addition, this shares the code of conduct for those attending the E3 events. Parent and child both need to sign and return to the camp.
