It’s that time again, a chance to get away from your school, the pressure, and gather in the beautiful Black Hills. We will be at Cedar Canyon Camp outside of Rapid City, South Dakota from September 22-24, 2023.

You will experience who God is with college students from the seven Campus Ventures ministries. It is a weekend of worship, fun, input from our friends from Texas to learn about the Christian faith after college, and a chance to explore Rapid City or the Black Hills.

Contact your campus staff to register!
