All Sections



Welcome to CCCA's Northern Rockies Section website. The Northern Rockies Section is made up of CCCA member camps from Idaho and Western Montana. On this site, you'll find:

  • The Section Members tab provides a list of all CCCA member camps in the Northern Rockies Section. Find out where member camps are located, then drill down to additional information about these great camps.
  • On the Section Leadership tab, you'll find information regarding the leadership of both the Great Northern Region (of which we are a part) and local section leadership.
  • Visit the Section News and Events tab for details about upcoming events in our section, our region as well as training events and the annual conference hosted by CCCA.
  • The Sectional Conference tab provides details about our annual sectional where local Christian camps come together for two to three days of worship, fellowship, networking and fun. If you are not a part of CCCA, no problem. You can still attend. Check out the Sectional Conference tab for more information.
  • Finally, the Section Connection tab provides members with various resources, including links to various ways to communicate within — and outside of — our section.

On behalf of CCCA and the Northern Rockies Section, thanks for visiting, and we hope to see you at one of our member camps and conferences soon!

The Skit Guys

Comedy Night

Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, the men who form the widely popular comedy duo The Skit Guys, have been best friends since high school. With encouragement and guidance from their youth pastor, the guys started to write and perform skits for their youth group. Since their high-school days, they've been writing and performing hilarious and poignant skits live around the world and on camera.

Their website (https://www.skitguys.comhas grown into a treasured media resource for families, pastors and churches. Their numerous short films, skits, and scripts are used to reach families all over the world. When The Skit Guys aren't performing or shooting new short films, both Tommy and Eddie serve in their local churches, enjoy good food (especially pizza and fries!), and love life with their families.
