clearwater forest


The goal of all Clearwater Forest events is to build community. Our hope is that everyone who comes to Clearwater can feel like part of the Clearwater Forest family, even after the event is over. Our events strive to provide shared experiences in a beautiful setting that minimizes distractions. This allows us to focus on what is most important - the people! At Clearwater Forest, we hope to create an environment where deep, lasting relationships can be formed while encouraging personal growth and having a lot of fun! Come join us at one of our events or host your own!
