Student need to eat before they arrive at camp, there will be no dinner provided on Friday night. If your student will be arriving late due to high school football games, please email us with those details at email@example.com.
Check-in and registration will be done on the porch of Cannon Hall. We will have people with flashlights and signs directing you to Cannon Hall. If you have not payed in full for the retreat, please do so at the registration table. If your student has medicine that they need to take during the retreat, you will need to turn in the medicine at the medical table located at the registration area. All medicine must be turned in inside the original packaging. We will provide forms for parents to fill out with details about what medicine is to be taken, how many times a day, and at what time of day it should be taken.
Below is a link to the schedule for the retreat and the packing list. Please note that this retreat is a no cell phone retreat. The new youth ministry council which is made up of adult volunteers and parents voted unanimously for this policy at this retreat. The rationale behind this decision is that students need to have moments where they simply unplug. Fall Retreat is about creating an environment where students can take a break from their daily schedules and duties to focus on their relationship with God. Please help and support the ministry in talking with your student about not having their phone on the retreat.
On Sunday, November 5, your family is invited to Camp Hargis for our closing worship session at 11:00am. Please arrive between 10:30-10:45am on Sunday morning. Parking will be in front of Cannon Hall and in the field behind Cannon Hall. The worship service will be held in Cannon Hall. As a part of this service the senior class of 2018 will serve communion to the students and families. This is special worship service that you will not want to miss. After the service is over, students will load up their belongings and are released to their parents.
