Smokies

This picturesque location offers a blend of the great outdoors in the Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennesse’s largest waterpark at Wilderness at the Smokies and fun entertainment that your students and adults will enjoy. It’s camp at a waterpark resort, but Sevierville is a setting that proudly boasts of a “Southern” atmosphere fueled by local hospitality. That combination makes for an environment suited perfectly to students for worshiping God and studying His Word.

$169 Per Participant
