Wednesdays, 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

BASIC to Camp Stronghold

Each June our youth head off to Camp Stronghold. For more information, contact Randy Hausler.  Click here to download the brochure for Stronghold 2019. Below is the video of  Camp Stronghold Week 2018. To look at photos from the week, click here.


In the summer, Monday does not exist on the calendar of a junior high student, instead it is FUNDAY! Each Monday (right after Camp Stronghold) BASIC hosts various fun activities to help break up the boredom of summer. This summer we will go to a drive in movie, splash and swim at Lost Island Waterpark, trek over to Adventureland for the day, attend the Iowa State Fair, play some Night Games, and much much more!
