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.
Are you a youth pastor or leader? Adults meeting this criteria and interested in attending the retreat with their youth group may register as youth sponsors. This option is intended for adults working with their youth groups on an official and regular basis and is not open to the public. Cost to register as a youth sponsor is $40. All youth sponsors ages 18 and up will be required to complete a background check through the camp's program. You will receive a link to complete the background check online after registering. A $10 late fee will be added for registrations submitted after Friday, November 1. Registration coming closer to the event..
If you are a volunteer staff member recruited by the dean, please follow the instructions emailed to you by your dean to register. Please DO NOT REGISTER AS A YOUTH SPONSOR as you will be charged a fee if you do so. Volunteer staff recruited by the dean have their fee waived for this retreat, so please follow the link he emails you to register as volunteer staff. If you have any questions, please contact your dean directly.
*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.
