Live Virtual Family Retreats

Camp Boggy Creek’s Virtual Family Retreats deliver 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 online part happens via Zoom with a virtual campfire, games, singing, dancing, conversation, and trying new things.  The offline part happens with the help of games and activities suggested by Camp via videos and written resources.  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.  Together, we explore new possibilities and try new things, all with the safety, respect and love we treasure.

Library of Recorded Videos

The Camp Boggy Creek Family ventured Beyond the Gates for the first time in the summer of 2020, with over 480 registered families totaling over 1,700 participating family members.  A team of 170 volunteers helped to create 10 weeks of virtual camp, including 80 videos on our YouTube channel.  With these videos, you can create a campfire show, sing songs, do cheers, play games, see Camp critters and people, watch theater performances, do craft projects, learn dance moves and more!  Below is the menu of playlists of these recorded videos.
