During the summer, Doe River Gorge is a place where kids come from all over the country to experience one of the greatest camps anywhere. It is three miles of pristine wilderness loaded with fun and adventure where young people experience new challenges, build meaningful friendships, and get to know the God who created it all. But beginning in 2023, when summer is over and it gets chilly outside, a new adventure will await those who come to Doe River Gorge.
Doe River Gorge Presents The Christmas Train
Get ready for your new family tradition. From late November until Christmas the campus of Doe River Gorge will be transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland to provide a spectacular night for your family. With festive Christmas decorations, warm campfires, amazing foods, singing carolers, and various shops and attractions, there will never be a dull moment. But the highlight of the evening will be riding aboard a live steam locomotive train where the true story of Christmas will be told like you’ve never heard it before. It will be like riding through a life-size storybook.
Putting Christ back in Christmas
The story of Christmas and the gospel message are increasingly being suppressed in our culture. Christmas carols, nativity scenes, and even the “Merry Christmas” greeting are gradually disappearing from the Christmas holidays. The Christmas Train will provide a fun and festive evening where people of all ages can hear the gospel message as they experience the story of Christmas as told from creation to the resurrection.
The Next Steps
The Christmas Train will become operational at Doe River Gorge as soon as funding, engineering and construction can be completed. The target date for the grand opening is November of 2023. The total amount of money that must be raised is $5.85 million. As of April, 2022, approximately 65% of this amount has been raised.
Doe River Gorge invites you to share in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity through your generous giving. To find out more visit doerivergorge.com/media
