Changes Coming to Breakaway Lodge

May 23, 2018

Friends of Breakaway Lodge:

 As many of you already know, this will be Breakaway’s final summer – the last of 50 years of providing life-transforming experiences for young people. While we are saddened, as we know many of you are, over the passing of this beautiful season, we are grateful for all that has happened here. 

Breakaway Lodge will placed on the market at the conclusion of the 2018 Young Life Summer Camp Season. We want to make sure that those who believe in the ministry happening here are clear about a few important points:

  • The Young Life and WyldLife ministry that has used this facility for weekly meetings will continue in a new location or locations, to be determined.
  • The Sixth- Grade Camping for which Breakaway Lodge has become known will also continue – plans are being formed now to ensure great camping for this special age group.
  • While we are no longer taking bookings at Breakaway Lodge, we encourage interested groups to contact Washington Family Ranch for your next retreat or camp trip.

This was not an easy decision for those in leadership, and it was made with a full awareness of the rich legacy and effective ministry happening here. We are equally aware of the demands and expectations of modern camping service, the regulatory limitations of our location, and the available resources to steward all of our ministries. 

With this change, Breakaway will join other iconic Young Life camps that have completed their term of service – places like Star Ranch and Silvercliff Ranch in Colorado. Each is a special place where lives have been changed for eternity.
