The best week of the year!

What is The Wave?

The Wave connects students to Jesus and each other. That’s why we call it the best week of the year!
It’s a week where 6th-12th grade students go to America’s Largest Indoor Water Park, Wilderness Resort, and experience 4 days and 3 nights with their people. It’s a place everyone belongs.
Each day is filled with time to worship together, with messages that connect with teens right where they are at, time at the water slides, at the wave pool and please don’t forget that lazy river! No minute is wasted.
Whether you are a Squad Leader, a program team member or a student we know Jesus has something special in store for this week and you! 

sign up today!


Where is the Wave?

The Wave is at Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells (511 E Adams St, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965).

Happens to be America’s Largest Indoor Water Park…and there is lots to do outside too!

When is the Wave?

Monday, August 1- Thursday, August 4, 2022.

What is a day at the Wave like?

Students start the day spending time with Jesus, learning about Him from the Bible and talking to Him in prayer. Students can do this outside or in the room, as long as everyone sticks together.

Next, we’ll kick off the mornings with a combination of sessions, community groups, and fun! Sessions are a lot like a Level Ground night but better. Then, they head into small groups in the session to hash out what they just experienced. Leading them to Community Groups, where Squads meet up with a few other Squads and use their FUN PASS. Doing some group activities around Wilderness, and by midday, everyone is getting hungry.

Lunch is different every day, but it’s always delicious. After eating, students have free time to relax on the water parks, indoor or outdoor, lounge at the pool, take a nap— whatever the entire room can agree to.

Each night, we come together for dinner and an evening session. We sing, we learn, and we pray. Then, it’s back to the room for small group time. And maybe a little sleep. Maybe.

What if my plans change? Can I get my deposit back?

No. After signing up for the Wave, your money is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Can I bring my cell phone to the Wave?

If your student part of the agreement to attend the Wave is to leave your cell at home. This allows you to enjoy a distracted free week and enjoy the people around you. Parents will have their student’s Squad Leader cell and our emergency contact. We promise, this only makes the week 100 times better.

What if I do if there is an emergency while my teen is at the Wave?

There will be an emergency phone line for you to call and get in contact with your student. You will find out more about this at the parent meeting.
