Changes for 2024 Camping!

Please note: Portage Lake Campground will be closed for Labor Day weekend this year. This is where we typically camp as a church, however we will be camping at Sugarloaf Campground for 2024. Sugarloaf is still part of the Waterloo Recreation Area. Sugarloaf is not as accessible for the day so we encourage you to get a campsite quickly! Sites are available for the Labor Day weekend beginning February 29 and we anticipate them to go fast! Come be a part of this awesome weekend! 

Note: There is no public access to Sugarloaf Lake.

When is it?

Labor Day Camping is over Labor Day weekend (August 30 - September 1). Come for the full time or feel free to come out for the day on Saturday, August 31. (We are still looking into details for this option.)

What to expect?

DCF has a history of Labor Day Camping together. You can expect a fun, but relaxing weekend of camping with church friends. It's a great way to get to know people better and just enjoy God's nature together. Activities are planned for Saturday, August 31, such as football games, sand castle contests, volleyball and a potluck! More details about the weekend will be provided closer to Labor Day weekend.

Who's invited?

Anyone! We would love to have you join us no matter who you are!
