The Middle School Retreat is a fun-filled weekend geared towards our 7th-8th grade students. The theme for this retreat is "Fearless." 

“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” - 2 Timothy 1:7

Fear can keep students from being all that God called them to be. Whether it’s insecurity, doubt, fear of rejection or the fear of unmet expectations, fear holds many students back. The problem with this is, of course, that God has called us to face our fears and lean in to who He desires us to be. Scripture is clear: God empowers us to meet the tasks He has set in front of us.

This weekend, students will look at four powerful moments from Jesus’ life where He modeled for us what it means to be fearless. Students will see what Scripture has to say about being bold in the face of whatever the world throws their way, empowering them to do the same.

*The Middle School Retreat is open to middle school students. Typically, this covers grades 7-8, but if your school or youth group considers your 6th grader a middle school student, feel free to register for this event as we understand that churches and schools define middle school differently. If you have any questions regarding whether or not your student is considered a middle school student, please email the camp office.


**Register early and receive the early bird rate! Registrations submitted online up until 11:59 pm on Friday, November 1 are eligible for the early bird rate. Registrations must be postmarked Friday, November 1 or earlier to qualify for the early bird rate. After that time, a $10 late fee will be added.
