Junior High Retreat: More than Horsin' Around!

October 01, 2019
By Mrs. Steffany Ritchie, Junior High Advisor

This year we brought in several new activities, as well as the traditional student favorites to make for a great time for all!  Students enjoyed paint-ball team games, geocaching, working with horses, high-ropes and flashlight tag.  In addition, we had smores around the campfire as we closed out our night of fun. 

The spiritual aspect of the camp was focused on Romans, what the students are studying in Bible this year, Mrs. DeMeritt and Mrs. Ritchie used an interactive approach to each session as students learned and shared about becoming a “living sacrifice” to God and how to find our identity and uniqueness in Christ.

The food is always fabulous and the students enjoyed frozen goodies like smoothies and caffeine free Frappuccino’s from the bistro as they spent some free time between activities and sessions.

The last session before heading home gave each student the opportunity to make a proclamation on a banner, showing their commitment to work on their spiritual gifts and becoming spiritual sacrifices to the Lord.
