The conference-wide Adventurer Campout is held in the Southeastern California Conference territory and, when prepared properly, provides opportunity for the Adventurer families to broaden their experience and friendships.
Fees are $18/person. Ages 0-2 are free. Campout fees are subject to change. Costs are kept down as much as possible, charging only for patches, camping fees and administrative costs such as portable toilets, etc. You have the option of paying by credit card, church check or invoicing the church. Simply select the ‘Order Now’ button. Then on the registration page select the payment method with the down arrow in the payment section. The church will be invoiced if payment is not received by the event date.
Rancho Jurupa Park charges a day-use fee of $6 per adult and $3 per child, ages 3-12 (subject to change) when dropping off supplies, etc. The day-use fee will also apply to those visiting on Sabbath. Day-use fee is paid to Rancho Jurupa Park at the gate upon entrance.
The club director or secretary must submit the online registration form at www.seccyouth.com under the ‘Event’ tab fifteen (15) days before the event. Registration deadline for this event is Thursday, April 20. Let us know what your projected numbers are. Actual numbers are given when the club director/secretary registers onsite.
The club director or secretary should go IMMEDIATELY to registration headquarters to register their club at campsite #12 and confirm numbers.
The campsite will be open after 3pm Friday. Please make every effort to be all set up before the Sabbath begins Friday evening. Being ready for the Sabbath teaches obedience to God and makes a great beginning. If your whole club canot be there early, send a few key people ahead to set up camp, including tents. With proper planning and preparation, any club in our conference should be able to arrive at the campsite before sundown. This would allow a bit of leisure time and avoid rushing into the Sabbath hours in a frantic race with the sun. IF YOU MUST BE LATE, PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF THOSE THAT MY BE IN MEETINGS OR ALREADY ASLEEP. No animals allowed.
All clubs are encouraged to attend, even if you have limited equipment or experience. Please remember that this is an Adventurer Campout and only Adventurers and their families can attend.
Campsites are located in the Lakeview Camground portion of Rancho Jurupa Park and have full hookups. Riverside County will be in the group area, grass field, with no hookups, primitive camping.
Your camping spot will be assigned by your area coordinator who will check your campsite for safety throughout the weekend. Each club will be allowed two(2) motorized vehicles per campsite like an RV and car, two cars, etc. Rancho Jurupa only allows one RV per campsite. The club staff will need to determine which two motoried vehicles will be at their campsite. All other vehicles will need to park in the overflow parking. See ‘Parking’ for more information.
If a family would like to camp in their RV, reservations would need to be made with Rancho Jurupa for the Cottonwood Campgrounds. Reservation fees are the responsibility of the family. Adventurer Family Camp fees of $18 per person will still be charged by SECC Youth Ministries.

Water faucets will be available in camping areas. We will rent portable chemical toilets.

We suggest gallon bottles or buckets.

Sabbath School: Each club is responsible for its own lesson study. Larger clubs may want to have several classes since smaller groups are more productive. A good suggeston is to exchange teachers with clubs so that each club may have a guest teacher.
Lunch: Your club may wish to invite, in advance, another club to join with you for a potluck. The menu can be prearranged with each club bringing part of the menu. Adults and children enjoy getting together and making new friends.
Sabbath Afternoon: The special event will be based on Creation. The Adventurer Coordinators will finalize the details at the January meeting. Infomation will be updated in February.
Saturday Evening: Family Time; time to socialize, have games and interact with each other and other clubs.
Tarps or other gound covers are advised. Seating will be divided down the middle with one side for blankets and one side for chairs. Clubs may not leave blankets or chairs to reserve their spots. Seating will be on a fist come, first serve basis.
Although there are trash receptacles available, you will need to bring trash bags so you can bag trash and leave the area as clean as, or cleaner, than you found it.
Adventurers and leaders are encouraged to wear Class-A (dress) uniforms on Sabbath morning. Class-C (field) uniforms should be worn on Saturday afternoon and Sunday while participating in the activities.
As you make plans for your campsite, please include a wash-up station for your campers. Things run a lot smoother if people do not have to wash up in the kitchen area.

When & Where
The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child's primary teachers and evangelizers. The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and to further the child's development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas. Through the Adventurer Program, the church, home, and school can work together with the parent to develop a mature, happy child.
The church's greatest resource is our children; therefore, it is imperative that as a church we meet the challenge to provide a program for our children during their early, formative years. We want right habits, thoughts, motives, dispositions, and attitudes to be established. The Wise Man wrote, "Bring up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Prov. 22:6 (NIV)
