  • The Adventist Book Center will be on-site offering food items and books for purchase. Sales pamphlets will be sent to homes shortly.
  • Accommodations: The conference will be reaching out to individuals who originally made reservations for 2020 camp meeting to confirm attendance. Once reservations have been confirmed, we will offer accommodations for RV, tent and cabin to requests received in 2021. Prices tbd.
  • The Blood Bank will not be on campus in July. Meanwhile, consider donating at your local office.
  • Meals will be available for purchase Wednesday a.m. through Friday evening. There will be no meal service or potluck on Sabbath, nor the traditional pancake breakfast.

Young Adults Needed!

We are looking for leaders who stand out and bring this program back to Alaska for the future! It will be held at Southern Adventist University, and hosted by Pastor Rob Lang of the North Pacific Union Conference and his team. If accepted to the Leadership Team, all  trip expenses will be paid, however it comes with the expectation that you will plan, develop, coordinate and run a DiscipleTrek Alaska in 2022. To apply, call the conference at 907.346.1004 ext1017, or email and put in the subject, "DiscipleTrek 2021".
