The Big Chill

February 2-4, 2024

We have designed a retreat specifically for middle school students. Why? Because we get what makes them tick: Food. Fun. Friends. We serve the best food you'll ever have away from home (shhh... don't tell your parents, but it's even better than home). None of our food is frozen and warmed up. It's freshly made and served home-style. Sooooo good!

There will be a ton of fun stuff to do with your friends as well. We love playing Nine Square in-the-air and have a pretty serious Gaga Ball tournament during our free time and our game master always has a ton of stuff to play morning, noon, and night as well. BUT, by far the students favorite, is our Zombie Apocalypse! It's a lot like a scavenger hunt and an escape room across the entire retreat center in the dark... with zombies chasing you. There is nothing else like it around here.

On Saturday night we will host the Abnormal Formal.  We do some dancing, play some games, and mix in a talent show. If you have a cool talent you'd like to share and have a chance to win some cash prizes just send an email to us and we'll put you in the contest. Attire for the Formal is a mashup of wearing thrift store clothes and spirit week at school.

The sleeping arrangements are like any typical camp. We are in cabins that sleep about 10 people each (8 students 2 leaders). The cabins are also warm, toasty, and have their own private showers.

At the retreat our theme will be - Story Seekers: Discovering God's Narrative for our Lives. Together we’ll journey to uncover the amazing narrative that God has written, not only in the Bible, on each of our lives! Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to deepen your faith in a personal and meaningful way!

$125.00 covers everything we described above... food, lodging, transportation to Westminster Woods, proper adult supervision, and a few extra surprises not mentioned here. All forms need to be completed by January  25.
