More than just a camp show, Adventure Unlimited (and A/U Ranches’ Camp) Gatherings are for all ages and a great way to have fun, learn about A/U Ranches programs and engage with a broader network of Christian Scientists. They typically include:

  • Fun and games (like our traveling Gaga pit!)
  • Information about camp at the A/U Ranches
  • The latest on DiscoveryBound and all their great activities
  • Opportunities for alumni to reconnect
  • New friends and resources
  • Refreshments

Whether you’ve never gone to camp, have been going for years, or were on staff that one summer back in ’78, Camp Gatherings are for you! Bring your family and Christian Science friends and experience a little bit of camp.

BONUS: Get a $50 tuition credit off Youth Camp when you attend a Camp Gathering and sign up at the show (or within one week)!
