Beyond the Gates presents fun Camp activities you can do at home!

Beyond the Gates delivers the impact of community, empowerment, engagement, and the Boggy Creek spirit to campers and families in a virtual camp program through online and offline fun. The program will serve all members of the Boggy Creek family. Together, we will explore new possibilities and try new things, all with the safety, respect, and love we treasure.

What’s happening this fall?

In light of the recent increase of COVID-19 cases in Florida as well as many of our medical volunteers once again being immersed with their own hospitals and medical facilities, we feel it is best to suspend our traditional weekend family retreat programs.

We know this is disappointing, but rest assured, the sense of belonging, friendships, and joy associated with camp will not disappear! Our retreats will be provided as virtual programs through Beyond the Gates: Family Retreat Weekends.

The program will offer the same fun and community of on-site retreats, yet happening at families’ own homes via the internet. There will be live interactions with other families, Camp staff, and Camp volunteers through video calls including activities, music, singing, and dancing. Camp will provide a schedule of video calls and activities and an activity packet to help families prepare for a virtual family weekend at home. As always with our family retreats, these Beyond the Gates: Family Retreat Weekends are for the entire family to participate together – parents/guardians and kids.

We hope you will join in the fun this fall during our Beyond the Gates: Family Retreat Weekends as we continue our adventures together!

"I just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to volunteer at Camp Boggy Creek. I came thinking that I could make a difference in a camper’s life not realizing that Boggy Creek could indeed change mine."
- Rebecca, Camp Volunteer
