Our annual May Camp retreat is coming up soon! Here are the details. Be sure to grab your registration form in the youth room or download one here.
Who: All grade 7-12 students
What: Long weekend retreat - includes meals, chapel time, activities, field games, outings, free time, swimming, a talent show, a night game, and more! Our theme is "Walk the Walk" and the youth pastors will be talking about what it means to walk this earth as Jesus did. Citizens and Saints will be leading worship for us this year.
When: May 15-18 - meet at the church on Friday May 15 at 3pm. The bus will leave at 3:30pm. We will return to the church on Monday May 18 at approx. 6pm.
Where: Green Bay Bible Camp in West Kelowna (1449 Green Bay Rd.)
Cost: $180 - additional cost to sign up for the Skate Park outing or tubing. Please note that we don't want cost to prohibit anyone from attending, so please contact Amanda if you are unable to pay the full fee and we will help you out!
Deadlines: Earlybird deadline is Sunday, April 19. Get your form and payment in by that date and get a free shirt! You can sign up until May 10, but no shirt and a higher fee.
What to bring: Bedding, clothes (including a coat, runners, and something for cool/rainy weather), swimwear (tankinis for girls and board shorts for guys), Bible, toiletries, games/activities, dinner for the bus ride up (or cash), etc. LADIES, be sure to bring a dress as we always do a 'girls night' for Sunday dinner and take some group photos!
What not to bring: alcohol, drugs (prescriptions are fine - contact Amanda to make arrangements), and electronics. We will be collecting all iPods, phones, etc. before students get off the bus and will keep them in a secure location during the weekend. If you need to contact your child during the weekend, contact Amanda so we can make phone use arrangements :)
