Jr. High Winter Camp


Christ-centered Winter Youth Camps for 7th-8th-grade students

Hartland's Jr. High Winter Camp offers awesome team recreation, competitive sports tournaments, great worship music, and challenging messages. It's all designed to build a strong faith in Christ and deepen students' walks with Him.
Enjoy delicious, all-you-can-eat meals, friendly staff, and a huge variety of fun activities.

In a culture shouting to focus on yourself, believe in yourself, get plenty of "me time," and pursue happiness above all else, the timeless echo of the Bible emerges. It reminds us that life's purpose surpasses self-indulgence; it's a canvas to reflect the divine. God created us for one primary purpose: to glorify Him. "Thus says the Lord, 'Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory'" (Isa. 43:6–7). Life is wasted when we focus on ourselves instead of living for the glory of God, not just in the big things but in every area of our lives, even routine things like eating and drinking. "Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Cor. 10:31). So let's take some time this winter to "fix our eyes on Jesus" (Hebrews 12:2) and a lot less time focusing on ourselves.



Dates and Speakers

February 9 - 11, 2024

  • Speaker: Monty Montana

    Monty Montana currently serves as the Young Families Pastor at Valley Baptist Church in Bakersfield. Monty holds a degree in Applied Theology from California Baptist University and is slowly working his way through graduate studies(and will likely graduate when Jesus returns!) Monty has been preaching since the age of 17 and views our state as a ripe mission field full of gospel opportunity. Monty and his wonderful wife Hannah have been married for 5 years and together have 3 wonderful children.  In his free time Monty enjoys camping, reading, working on cars, and chasing his kids around the home.

    Fun fact about Monty: before he felt God calling him to vocational ministry, he originally hoped to pursue a career in standup comedy…this past career goal tends to come out in his preaching!

  • Music: Bryan Easter

    Music is a reflection of the soul, and through his music and personal testimony, Bryan Easter shares how the Lord's faithfulness is unmatched and that the depth of his grace is unfathomable. The band is made up of all California natives and has enjoyed ministry adventures over the past 3 years with youth groups and congregations all over.

We have the unique opportunity to create a setting that fosters spiritual, relational, and personal growth.  Your dress can help or hinder that goal so please be modest.  While this list does not include every imaginable article of clothing or fashion trend, here are some guidelines to help you keep everyone's best interests in mind.

  • Tops end where bottoms begin.  Your midriff belongs behind one or the other.
  • Underwear belongs UNDER your other clothes.  Don't go showing it off.
  • Sleepwear is for sleeping in.  Please don't wear your jammies around camp.
  • Yoga pants are for doing yoga in.  Save the tight-fitting pants/shorts for the gym back home or cover them with a long shirt.
  • And as ironic as it may sound, the longer the shorts the better.  At least fingertip length, please.

That about “covers” it - please do likewise (pun intended).


Hartland is very isolated and there are no gasoline stations nearby. Make sure you fill up before you come up the mountain. If you are coming through Visalia, the last place to buy gas is in Lemon Cove. If you are coming from the North, the last place will be in Fresno.

 Note to Parents
 Directions to Hartland


It is our desire to provide a fun, yet safe, environment for each camper. In order to accomplish this, a Registered Nurse is on-site and available 24-hours-a-day to assist with medical emergencies, first-aid, and administration of medications. Please ensure that medical forms are filled out completely. All campers' medications must be in their original containers, labeled with name and clear instructions.
Medications should then be placed in one labeled zip-lock bag per individual. These bags are to be turned in to the nurse upon check-in.

How it works

Our part:
We give you a discounted rate for each camper. Plus, each camper and counselor will receive free access to recreation activities. We provide you with access to Hartland's online registration system. This easy-to-use system streamlines the process of registering campers, collecting medical forms, sending confirmation notices, and creating rosters (paper forms also available). We also provide you with a free promotional video, posters, bulletin inserts, and flyers to get the word out to your students and parents.

Your Part:

  1. You decide how many camper spots you want to reserve and submit your request below.
  2. You secure the spots by signing a contract and making a payment of the non-refundable registration fee of $40 per camper
  3. You collect the completed registrations and money from your campers.
  4. You give the campers the confirmation information, medical forms, etc.
  5. You supply one counselor for every 7 campers. There is no charge for the counselors to attend camp.
  6. 2 weeks prior to camp, you give Hartland one check for the balance of the camp fees due, cabin assignment sheets, completed medical forms, and volunteer counselor applications.
  7. You agree to comply with California guidelines for youth serving organizatons (AB-506, etc.).
  8. You pay Hartland via check. Those churches/organizations opting for credit/debit/text payments will be charged a 3% processing fee.
