What will be taught?

We will be studying scripture and participating in different breakouts to better understand how to share the love of Jesus through sports, art, friendship, and more. The hope is for a highly interactive retreat where students choose the breakouts they are most interested in.

Why a Retreat?

Although we are always teaching God's word and pointing our students towards Christ, on retreats students get extended time with peers, leaders, and learning about God's love for them. When a whole weekend is devoted to being "unplugged" from the world and "plugged-in" to Christ, this often yields significant moments of faith in our students.Whether student's make a pivotal decision in their walk with Christ, or grow in deeper in Christ-centered community with their leaders/peers, retreats are great tool for students to grow closer to God and to others.
Also, retreats are a great on-ramp for students looking to join our youth group.


Medication will be self-carry and self-administered on the trip. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to message us.

Safety Precautions

All students will have a leader who is their primary point for supervision and contact throughout the entire day and during the night. These leaders can be contacted by parents at anytime if something needs to be communicated to their student.
