Zephyr Point Sr. High Basecamp – July 8-13

High School Basecamp at Zephyr Point in Tahoe is designed for students who want to gain deeper insight into what the road of discipleship with Jesus is all about. Basecamp will both encourage and challenge your faith, giving you space to take major steps in your relationship with Christ while engaging in activities like whitewater rafting, hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding, and more! This will be the best week of the summer, so don’t miss out! Cost is $427 per participant. Registration is due by May 21. Space is limited, so sign up today!

Service Trips 

March 17-24 — Spring Break Service Trip — Registration due January 28th

Every year, Refuge kids decide to spend their spring vacation serving others. Sometimes we go to Mexico, sometimes we go to a U.S. city to serve those who need to see Jesus through our actions. This year, we went to Rockport, Texas to help clean up in the wake of devastating hurricanes. Check out our Instagram to see some pictures of our time there!

Financial Partnership

As a group, we are raising $20,000 to cover flights, housing, meals, and ground transportation for our entire group. We got off to a great start through our Tri-tip Dinner Fundraiser on January 19th, and we are SO thankful to all who purchased a dinner or helped us make the dinner run smoothly!

Even though the trip is over, we’re still accepting donations. If you would like to give a donation, click the button to the right. Your financial partnership makes this service trip possible. Only a small group of us are going, but the prayers and support of people like travel with us!


Work Scholarship Applications

We never want money to be a reason a kid can’t go to an event or retreat. Apply now for a work scholarship.


Medical/Liability Forms

We want kids to be safe! Every participant in any event must have a BPC medical information/liability release form on file.
