It’s time for the high schoolers to pack their sleeping bags, grab their marshmallows, and remember their bug spray – WE’RE GOING CAMPING! On September 29th we will be meeting in the parking lot of the ECC at 4:15pm and the vans will be pulling out promptly at 4:30pm! We will then head off to Camp Guilrock for a fun overnight adventure filled with worship, camp fires, bonding time, and FUN-TIVITIES (fun activities) including canoeing, kayaking and a low ropes course! On Saturday, September the 30th, we will leave Guilrock at 4:00pm and arrive back at the ECC by 4:30pm. The cost of the trip is $35 per person and that includes three meals, the ability to stay overnight, and all the fun things we’ll be doing!
This year’s theme is “Big Picture Stuff” where we’ll be talking about being Heaven-minded and how important it is not to get caught up in the small things or be consumed with the surface level, materialistic things of the world. Our students are facing things like serious peer pressure, cyber-bullying, regular bullying, and high levels of stress – this retreat will provide a safe space and an opportunity for them to come together, be real, learn to lean on God and one another, and have fun.
A FEW THINGS WE NEED: Please let me know if you have a tent that we can use as we will all be spending the night under the stars! We’ll be near a bathroom facility that includes sinks, toilets, showers, and water fountains. Also, we are in need of chaperones, so let me know if you’d like to volunteer! This would be a great opportunity to bond with our students away from the chaos, screens, and noise of our normal lives. If you feel God calling you to come, answer!
