The Youth Ministry is going on a retreat to Camp Castaway this April 15-17, 2016. This will be the 13th year that we have brought kids to this retreat and there's just as much fun planned this year as ever before.
Middle schoolers (grades 6-8) who join us will have a ton of fun while learning more about their faith. There are some crazy fun games and stunts from the stage planned along with the usual activities the camp has to offer. Castaway is located in Detroit Lakes, MN and is a Young Life camp facility. The retreat is run by our partner in youth ministry, Side by Side Ministries.
We are currently running a promotion for anyone who signs up by March 20, 2016 for a free retreat t-shirt. The retreat is best experienced when you bring a friend along but is also designed to help you make a lot of new friends. We have numerous examples of young people becoming longtime friends with people they meet at Castaway.
I encourage you to tell your middle schooler about the retreat and tell them to find a friend who is interested in going with them. For all the details about the retreat and to register online visit our Castaway Retreat page here. Check out the video from a previous camp to see how much fun this is.
