Event Details


May 4-6, 2018


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 ‘Ticket’ button and put in the correct number for tickets you are purchasing.  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.  

Hurkey Creek 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 Hurkey Creek at the gate upon entrance.


The club director or secretary must submit the online registration form at under the ‘Event’ tab fifteen (15) days before the event.  Registration deadline for this event is Thursday, April 19.  Let us know what your projected numbers are.  Actual numbers are given when the club director/secretary registers onsite. 

Even though Hurkey Creek Park is near Pine Springs Ranch, clubs or individuals cannot stay at Pine Springs Ranch as that is not the facility contracted for this event.

Registration Onsite

The club director or secretary should go IMMEDIATELY to registration headquarters to register their club 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 may 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.


Hurkey Creek is primitive camping with no hook-ups.  Campsites are located in the Group Camp Loops portion.  Your camping spot will be assigned by your area coordinator who will check your campsite for safety throughout the weekend.   

If it is determined that there is not enough space for all the RVs requested, the club or a family can make a reservation for the RV with Hurkey Creek Park for a campsite.  Reservation fees are the responsibility of the churhc or family.  Adventurer Campout fees of $18 per person will still be charged by SECC Youth Ministries.

If a family would like to camp in their RV, reservations would need to be made with Hurkey Creek.  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 toilets.  We suggest that you bring your own water or plenty of containers for carrying water from faucets to your campsite.  The containers should be small enough to be carried by your Adventurers.  We suggest gallon bottles or buckets.


No open fires will be allowed.  Each campsite must have a visible fire extinguisher near the cooking area and must have buckets of water and a blanket or gunnysack for firefighting.  In case of fire, soak the blankets quickly and use them for smothering the flames.


Clubs will be allowed to park vehicles at their campsite.  For safety reasons, we ask that vehicles not be moved for the duration of the event unless absolutely necessary.  If it is determined that too many vehicles are at your campsite, you will be instructed where to park additional vehicles.


For liability reasons SECC Youth Ministries has a no pets allowed policy.  Please leave your pets at home.


More details will be released at a later date as we are still in the planning stages.


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 Walk Thru the Bible.  Adventurers will experience Bible stories like Zacchaeus, Feeding the 5,000, Fishers of Men, the Good Samaritan, Building the Ark, and the Resurrection.

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.

Wash-up Station

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.

SECC Adventurers

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)
