Sports & Action Games
Although live music concerts and ministry dominates the SWC landscape, there is plenty of time to “get active” and participate in various action games and recreational sporting activities like basketball, which is free (balls are provided).
Youth-camp ministry, Pariah Productions, returns in 2013 to provide unique action games such as: giant volleyball, powerball, ultimate Frisbee, boomball and dodge ball. Each day Pariah operates organized group games and tournaments and individual play, with contests, prizes and giveaways to make it even more fun. Participation in Pariah Production’s activities is free. CLICK HERE for more on Pariah Productions including their winter camp.

These action activities are on a pay-per-play basis; requiring reasonable usage fees not included in the event ticket price. Bring additional spending money if you wish to participate. Inflatable tickets are $1 each (1-3 per inflatable) and full-day pass is $20. (The exact games/activities are subject to change).
Skaters can skate the Embassador Skateboards portable skatepark with the Team Riders! The team wants to provide “customers” an opportunity to skate with them, allowing park “visitors” to skate what the team riders skate at each demo. The skatepark consists of ledges, rails, quarter pipes and even a handrail with stairs. Interested skaters need to bring their skateboard and helmet when coming to SWC. The daily price to ride the ramps is $3 per.
Embassador is a Christ centered skateboard company that seeks to reach the skate community and young people with the message of Christ by; building community relationships, performing skateboard outreach demonstrations, and providing the highest quality skateboard products possible.
Team riders John Davidson, Casey Docherty, and Tino Grey have committed their lives to serving the Lord. During daily skateboard demonstrations the riders give their testimonies of how God renewed their lives through salvation in Jesus Christ.
The ministry of the skatepark is a dynamic element of SWC’s multi-faceted ministry; lives are changed for eternity at the skatepark (decision times/altar calls are giving). More info on Embassador Skateboards. Minors are required to present medical release forms signed by a parent or guardian before participating.
