Family Camp

We are hoping we will be able to resume Family Camp in 2021 after the campground closures kept us from gathering in 2020.  Plan NOW to join us this summer for some fun and relaxation at the beach!

*Please note that reserving campsites WILL need to happen in January!

Family Camp 2021

July 30 – August 1, 2021

What is Family Camp?

A long standing Northpark tradition, all are invited to join us as every year we get out of the heat and head over to the cool Pismo Beach! Come for a day or the whole weekend and enjoy spending time with old friends and make some new ones! There are several activities planned, but also plenty of time for your own adventures. Highlights include baptisms in the ocean, group campfire, sandcastle contest, games and activities. Every year we have several hundred people come to Family Camp! We hope you’ll join us this year.

Making Campsite Reservations

Request to join the Northpark Family Camp Facebook Group for the most helpful information about campsite request coordination, tips on getting sites, and updates.


*If you will be reserving a campsite, these reservations MUST be made EXACTLY  6 months prior to your arrival date at Campsites sell out within minutes!

(We encourage you to go online to become familiar with the reservation site in advance.)

Here are a few tips:

  • Be sure to choose PISMO SB as your campsite
  • Be sure to create your online account BEFORE your sign up date to speed up the process
  • Be sure to log in and start the reservation process BEFORE 8 a.m. on the day you make your reservations. Be ready to hit the submit button at 8 a.m. sharp.

Our Northpark families try to coordinate which camping spaces to reserve. If you will be making a reservation, it would be helpful to join our Family Camp Facebook Group for more information.

Do you have a campsite?

Once they are made available and you make a campsite reservation, please contact us and let us know your campsite number and dates so we know where all our Northpark campers are!

Where do I stay?

These sell out within a matter of minutes once they are made available 6 months prior. If you are not able to reserve a site, but would like one, please please contact us or share your request on the Family Camp Facebook Group to find out if someone has a spare site!

Other Options
If you will not be camping, feel free to stay at whatever hotel is available and convenient for you, or just drive in for the day on Saturday for our beach activities!


*This will be updated as we get closer to Family Camp. Check back for updates before you arrive.

During your relaxing camp weekend, please join us for several fun and exciting events to spend time with old friends and make new ones!

In 2021 we will be incorporating a daily devotional gathering time with Pastor Dave.  Times and location will be posted before family camp begins.
