When 250+ People Come to a Retreat…

JH-Retreat-FeatureAs of right now, there are currently 258 spots filled for our annual Fall Jr. High Retreat this weekend. 258! This is perhaps the biggest programmed youth retreat we have ever had. Camp has close to 300 beds, so don’t worry, no one will have to sleep outside! Knowing that most of those people will be energetic and amazing Jr. Highers, the weekend is bound to be insane in the best of ways. We are thrilled to have 6th, 7th, and 8th graders from all across the state up at camp this weekend to get just a few days to have fun, play tons of games, connect with each other, and ultimately, grow closer with Jesus Christ.

Having a retreat that will be bursting at the seams prompts us to ask those around camp what they think “When 250+ people come to the Jr. High Retreat…” Here’s what they said:
