Bring your children to Wilderness Escape, and become part of the journey as Moses and the Israelites watch God guide and provide. You'll travel back into Bible times - without setting foot outside our community. Each day, children ages 3-11 can become part of history as they see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in the Bible-times wilderness. You'll explore the Israelite Camp tents, visit Moses, take part in games, dance to lively Bible songs, and sample tasty tidbits as you discover more about Moses' adventures. These experiences make God's Word come alive with new meaning for all who participate.
