Exiled! (JR High Fall Retreat)
Friday, October 13 – Sunday, October 15, 2017
Please note that students will miss school that Friday.
Dear Parents of Jr. High Students,
I want to write to you today about a unique retreat opportunity coming up for your Jr. High student called Exiled at Lake Ann Camp. Years ago, I was looking for a fall retreat that was targeted at Jr. High students, a retreat that was hands-on and related to them right where they are at. You see, most retreats I found are really designed for Sr. High students and Jr. High students are simply allowed to tag along. But not Exiled, everything there is tailored to the specific needs of a Jr. High learning style.
This year’s Exiled theme is “Romania”, and is arguably the best theme they have for this retreat. Could you even begin to imagine what it would be like to live in a country where it is illegal to worship the God of the universe? Where each time you gathered for a worship service your very life could be threatened? Thankfully, we don’t live in a country like that but the question begs answering, if we did would the church of Christ rise like never before? Join us this fall for Exiled Romania. We will have camp fires, great food, laughter, paintball, laser tag, a Romanian adventure storyline but most importantly incredible worship and passionate preaching from a “real life” Romanian preacher! This will be a year you will not want to miss!
The dates are October 13th-15th. We will be leaving at 9:00 am on Friday, October 13th, so your student will need to miss school that day. We should be back at Harvest by 7:15 pm on Sunday, October 15th. The cost is $129. Register HERE! There are two paper forms that will be sent to you via confirmation email. Paper forms and a $40, non-refundable deposit are due by September 28th. The remaining balance is due when we leave.
Students should be prepared for temperatures that could range from the 30’s to the 70’s. The facilities are top-notch, so no matter the weather your student will be warm and comfortable at night. During the day, we will be out and about in the elements so you need to come prepared. (A complete packing list will be mailed to students who register.)
Hope to get exiled with you this October!
