About "The Weekend"

The Weekend is a youth group camping retreat that takes all the stress off youth leaders. The program is planned and run by Rivers Edge staff & the EMCC church. So instead of spending your time scrambling for wide game materials and planning field games, spend quality time with your youth!

Our desire is to facilitate a weekend where communities can connect together and grow in their relationship with each other and with Jesus Christ.

What does my fee cover?

The registration fee covers all activities, camp site, and food from Friday night snack to Sunday lunch. If campers opt out of meals, the price remains the same. Tuck shop (snacks), café items, and any merchandise are an additional expense.


If you are tenting, each group must provide its own tents for accommodation on the grounds. Tenting locations and cabins will be assigned at final registration.

The 2019 event has wrapped up, and details for the 2020 event will be announced once they are finalized.
