What is Solid Rock?

It's an optional part of the camper experience that challenges staff and campers to go above and beyond in a few specific areas of their camp experience: exercise before breakfast, engage God's Word, serve others, and pray with their cabin leader. We've adapted it to fit into your home!

Solid Rock: Home Edition

We're throwing down the challenge for the month of April. It involves running/walking, memorizing scripture, and surprising friends and family with acts of service. Need a way to track it? Create your own chart OR download ours!

What's "a place apart"?

It's a place where you can set aside the noise, stress, and busyness of everyday life and meet with God. In this place, you aren't with perfect people but you are surrounded by an authentic community who sees, knows, and loves you well. It's not easy, but it's good—you learn that you're able to do tough things, no matter your circumstances. And you're learning. You learn about yourself, others, and God through all of it. 

A place apart is where character is formed and Christian leaders are grown.

    Vanguards Return Home

    On Saturday, March 21, Vanguards returned home due to COVID-19. 

    While it will change the last 6 weeks of the program in significant ways, the distance won't keep this tight community apart. Between weekly check-ins, online class sessions, facilitated solos, and more, Vanguards will finish the year strong.

    Oatmeal Bake

    You either love it or dodge it with the cereal bar...Oatmeal Bake. We can get away with calling it healthy because there's oatmeal in the name, but really it's a sweet breakfast treat.

    Banana Bread

    We didn't adjust this recipe down to make one lonely loaf. This recipe will make three—one for you and two for a couple of lucky neighbors (gifted 6ft apart, of course.)

    The legendary HoneyRock bakery shares its secrets. From the recipe vault, we're breaking out some of our most-loved baked goods for you to make at home with your family. Tap the photo for the recipe!

    Pizza Dough

    While HoneyRock sticks to the classic toppings, this pizza dough can be easily topped to use up all of your tired looking veggies and random cans of pineapple bits or SPAM.
