Technology Fast?!?!

Yes - The Altitude Camp is instilling a technology fast for the first 3 days of each week (Wed - Fri). That means leaving your gadgets and gizmos in your bag
  • cell phones
  • laptops
  • ipods / mp3 players
  • pagers
  • palm pilots / PDAs
  • TV (except for group events or the Olympics are on)

Instead, bring boardgames, cards or other fun games to play with other Altitude folks. We really want to encourage you all to get to know each other and become BFFs. We'll have plenty of activities each of those days - so don't worry about being bored.

You'll hear more about the technology fast when you get to camp.

Sign Up For Camp!

What did we talk about in our interview?
  • How 2007 Altitude participants (Amy, Marc, Carson twins, Dustin, Godsave, & Allen) did this year?
  • Who's coming from Shorter College to Camp 2008?
  • What's God doing in their lives!
  • Best question - Who would Jay fight in a boxing match, Jimmers or Avery. He has quite the answer!
