Family Campout Time!

It’s time to “get your fun on”! Camping is a great way to relax and decompress from the busy schedule or life. The memory making possibilities are limitless! All-group activities and devotional times will be planned throughout the weekend. Pack up your tent (or camper if you’re so blessed!), sleeping bags, lanterns and all that good stuff and join us for a terrific weekend of fellowship and worship in God’s beautiful creation!

Sign-up below or at Contact Pastor Tonya (698-1503, Facebook, if you have questions.

September 30-October 2

David Crockett State Park in Lawrenceburg – Campground 1: The bathhouse is close, a creek runs along one side and there is a great paved loop for bikes and scooters. More details can be found at

Each family will be responsible for their own campsite ($20 per night), dinner on Friday night and Sunday breakfast. All meals on Saturday will be covered. ($5 activity and meal fee per person, limit $20 per family).

Throughout the weekend “Grace Bucks” will be awarded for various events, prizes, extra helpful behavior, etc. On Saturday night, we will have a fun auction where you can spend what you’ve earned. (We welcome the donation of auction items – the quirkier, the better!)

Tentative Schedule (Very tentative, that’s the point . . . we don’t have to be hyper-scheduled!)


Arrive at your leisure (look for the signs marking the campsites of other Grace Church families in Campground 1) and get set-up. Supplies will be available at Pastor Tonya’s site for you to come make a family sign.
