OUR MISSION: TO SHOW YOUNG PEOPLE THAT GOD'S LOVE IS REAL.
The Encounter (formerly SEP Rockies) is a Christ-focused, activity based, week long epic summer camp that resides in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Every year, hundreds of campers and staff come together to experience an indescribable week of fun and fellowship. Campers participate in tons of activities, eat "home-cooked" style meals, and create bonds that last a lifetime.
Our activities vary each year to change up the experience for our campers, but our teens participate in a handful of the following: Basketball, Chapel, Archery, Riflery, Formal Dance (and multiple dances/banquets), Drama Classes, Soccer, Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, Rock Climbing, Frisbee Golf, Block Parties, Swimming, Night Glow Challenges, Capture the Flag and more.
Our REAL purpose, however, is to share the love of Jesus with our youth. In a world that continues to require our kids to mature faster and struggle through new challenges every day, giving teenagers solid foundational principals to latch on to is ever more needed. The Encounter is a week long heart transplant for our kids and renews a much needed perspective and desire for the good things God has in store for their lives.
