3-5 Grade Retreat at
Camp WIllow Run

Sept. 29-Oct 1


All children in grades 3-5 (for the 2017-18 school year) are invited to attend a retreat on Sept 29-Oct 1 at Camp Willow Run on Lake Gaston in Littleton, N.C.

After last year's retreat, we heard consistent feedback that our kids preferred a quieter and simpler retreat. So this year, we will be reverting to our "old style" of programming our own retreat; we will not be going to Camp Willow Run in a large group with other churches.

We'll have time for Bible study, organized activities, and free time. Most of all, this is a chance to be together with friends and build relationships with caring adults, all while enjoying the beautiful environment of Camp Willow Run.

How Do I Register?
