As a follow-up to our summer camp, we have two retreats: one in October and one in March/April. It seemed like such a long time from summer to summer, so we decided to get together and be REFRESHed in between. We have a smaller crowd because of the seasons and different activities, but it also gives those who will be coming to camp the next year a chance to experience Camp Wesley on a shorter and smaller basis.
The weekend retreats are a little quieter, less busy time when we still have a lot of fun. But those weekends give us time to spend with each other more than we do at summer camp. The services are just as great and Pastor Todd and the youth pastors do the devotionals, messages and planning for the weekends.
REFRESH SPRING - Plan to put on your calendar in April of 2023!
GENERAL INFO FOR ALL RETREATS: Cost is $35 per person, ages 12 and up. Retreats begin on Friday at 6:00 pm and end on Sunday at noon. If you attended Youth Camp 2021, you DO NOT need to fill out a Medial Release Form. Otherwise, please download and fill out only the Medical Form pages (Pages 2-3) and bring with you to the retreat. Be prepared to be chilly at night with extra blankets and warm PJs. During the day it's a little warmer. Please look at the forecast before you pack and bring clothing and extra things you need accordingly. There is no heat in the buildings. Any further questions you have should be directed at our Youth Ministries Director, Rev. Todd Hinson.
What kinds of things happen at summer youth camp? Hmm, just about everything fun! Let me see if I can list just a few:
We do have a lot of fun, but we also have amazing moments around the altar with our friends. We know that the messages given to us are prayed over and are just what God has for us at that very moment to encourage, refresh, challenge and strengthen us. So come see for yourself. You won't believe it until you do!
