May 23, 2020 before summer 2020 camping begins.

To celebrate Windy Gap and all God has done in the lives of the 600,000 folks who have walked the holy grounds.

The goal is to create time and space for remembering your time at Windy Gap as you walk the grounds and get to see what God is doing to prepare it for the next 50 years. Here are some highlights:
• Young Life club with the work crew, summer staff and assigned team who will be greeting 300 kids the next day for the first week of the 2020 summer camping season.
• Meet folks on the assigned team who will be experiencing what you did ten to fifty years ago as they prepare for their 2020 assignment. You will have the opportunity to share how your time on assignment impacted your life then and now.
• We will celebrate and worship Young Life club-style all God has done and is continuing to do at Windy Gap!
