WELCOME TO OUR WINTER RETREAT
We are excited about our winter retreat and hope that you will be able to join us! We think that it could be the best weekend of your year.
But what about when you’re at Lake Champion? Well, you’ll be there with about 200 other students from more than ten different churches. You’ll stay in a girls only/guys only cabin with your friends and leaders, but you probably won’t spend a ton of time there, since there will be so much to do. Lake Champion is one of the best retreat camps on the east coast! With a lot of free time scattered throughout the weekend, you’ll be able to use the gym to play basketball, dodgeball, or gaga ball (go ahead and YouTube it!). You can hang out in the game room to play air hockey, ping pong, or pool and even grab a snack and a milkshake with a friend while hanging out in the snack room. On Saturday afternoon, you’ll have your chance to ride a giant swing, ride zip lines, climb an indoor or outdoor climbing wall, or even try out a high ropes course (I highly recommend this!). On top of all of that, there will also be basketball and dodgeball tournaments and of
We’ll gather together as a whole camp, getting to engage in some great worship, then hear a fun, relevant talk that will challenge you to take your next faith step. This could be one of the most fun weekends you’ll experience, but also one of the most impactful, as we hear God’s message of forgiveness, hope, and life. It’s going to be a weekend you won’t want to miss!
