A time for our students to get away and focus on Jesus...

Fall Retreat is an opportunity for our students to reconnect and recharge with Jesus, other students (from Kingdom and other EMC churches), and trained ministry leaders. This year's retreat we are focusing on the theme SEEN. Students will learn that our God is a God who Sees us and knows us when we feel forgotten, misunderstood, and marginalized.

 

Cost = $99

WHAT WILL WE DO?

Everyday we will be uplifted and challenged through worship services, interactive teaching, fellowship, games, food, and ample free time to enjoy the Camp facilities.

WHAT DO WE BRING?

Students are encouraged to bring only 1 small - medium bag for clothes and 1 bag for bedding and toiletries. 

We will be staying in cabins, with beds and bathrooms. Students must bring bedding (twin size) and pillows, toiletries, towels, Bible, pen/pencil, and enough clothing for three days. Skateboards, sports equipment, balls, and musical instruments are encouraged.

Students are also encouraged to bring snacks and drinks for themselves and at least one bag of a salty or sweet snack and one 2-liter bottle of soda to be shared with the group (we will be providing plenty of bottled water and healthy snacks also). Your child/children will need at least $20 for food on the way up and for snacks while there. 

 

WHAT IF WE CAN'T AFFORD TO GO?

Scholarships are always available. Please contact your the Youth Leader for you specific church to ask. 

 

*Please make all checks out to Kingdom EMC with "Fall Retreat - child's name" written in the MEMO.

EDGE Students Only: Electronics and Phones 

Students will be discouraged from having electronics of any kind with the exception of cell phones. Cell phones will be collected and given back when needed, and at the end of camp. Any electronics discovered will be put in holding (by one of our leaders) and returned when the retreat is over. We always permit students to recover their phones for the purpose of contacting family members when they desire. Especially in the evenings or mornings to check in and say hi. They can also use a leader's phone to do the same.
