High School Winter Retreat

Posted November 8, 2018 Jordan Hogue

This winter we will be taking our students to Mount Hermon in the Santa Cruz mountains for camp. Students will be surrounded by towering pines, redwoods and scenic views to help them get away from the pressures of daily life. While at camp, students will have the opportunity to connect to each other by going to the beach, exploring high ropes and zip lining, playing games, and connect to God through worship, dynamic speakers and Life Group sessions.

We hope your student can find the time and make it a priority to join us for winter retreat this year. We believe it is very important for all of our students to attend, and we feel this is the ultimate High School event of the year where life change takes place.
