Start a new Christ-Centered summer tradition! Zephyr Point Family Camp is all about bringing the family together for a week of Tahoe recreation, relaxation, fellowship with other families. We do this by providing a stress-free environment, giving the freedom to embrace time set apart for the purpose of regrouping the family unit and enjoying a purpose-filled vacation with one another!

He has worked with youth, college students, and has participated in a number of interfaith programs.
Rob has a passion for the environment, outdoor ministry, and is drawn to Celtic Christianity. In his doctoral work and ministry, Rob has explored pilgrimage as a spiritual practice, and has been both a pilgrimage participant and leader.
