Retreats and Camps
In addition to weekly meetings and events, our youth participate in fun, group building getaways as well as Service Missions. We have a “snow” retreat to Cedar Glen in February, and summer camping through the United Methodist camps, which run form the middle to the end of July each summer.
In late June or early July we take two missions, one junior high and one senior high. Our Junior high mission is typically off to San Diego where we spend 4 days doing a variety of service projects to develop a sense of community as well as to experience life as God’s loving hands. Our high school mission usually involves a longer trip with heavier projects. In the past we’ve been to New Orleans, San Francisco, and Birmingham, Al; to work on different mission projects, usually in disaster relief. Fundraising takes most of the year for this trip, so the commitment is big! But so is the reward!!
