It’s that time again, a chance to get away from your school, the pressures and gather in the beautiful Black Hills. We will be at Cedar Canyon Camp in the Black Hills outside of Rapid City, South Dakota from September 27-29, 2019.

You will experience who God is with college students from the five Campus Ventures ministries. It is a weekend of worship, fun, input from our friends John and Jen Kelsey and a chance to explore Rapid City or the Black Hills of South Dakota.


SPEAKER: John and Jen Kelsey, Navs 20s directors in OKC
