You Belong at Gauntlet

This summer, we’ll take a group of 6th - 12th grade students to Daytona Beach, so they can hang out with some of their closest friends and experience the best week of the year.



Go To The Gauntlet


Roll to the beach with a few thousand of your closest friends, cool out by the pool, and spend some time learning from incredible pastors. Also bring sunscreen - definitely do that. In short, have the best week of your life at Gauntlet, July 23-28. Tickets cover everything needed for the week except personal items, snacks, breakfast foods, and meals in transit to/from Daytona. Tickets are non-refundable, but the sooner you sign-up, the more money you'll save.

Ticket Prices
February 15 - May 31: $450
Starting June 1: $500 (Full Price)
