2015 Senior High Winter Retreat at Beaver Camp
March 13th - March 15th
It’s that time of year again…We are preparing for our annual retreat to Beaver Camp. We spend 3 days together of friends, food, fun, music, and a message. Here is some information so you know what it is like for your teen. We head up on a Friday after school to Beaver Camp which is in Lowville, NY. We stop in Lowville for dinner before arriving to the camp. We check into our cabins and get settled. Then we have our first meeting time along with music. If your teen has an instrument they can bring it along. Then we have some free time where we usually play games, walk around the camp, play hockey, talk…things like that. Then Saturday it is more of the same including time on the tubing hill. Then Sunday after we have breakfast and one last meeting time we head back home to arrive in Cato in the early afternoon. There are four other adults besides Jeff and me. Our Pastor, Ron Dusharm, leads our meeting times. Last year was so great…he let the teens ask him anything they wanted…they came up with some great questions! Jeff and I each take a cabin so there is an adult with the teens after curfew.
We have some rules…
The dates we are going this year are March 13th to March 15th. The cost is $40. That includes all the meals we have at camp. They will need to have some money for dinner Friday night when we stop…there is a McDonald’s and Subway. We do ask that each teen brings a snack and drink to share. We love our snacks!! Permission slips and half of the cost is due February 22nd. We will be basing our reservations on what we receive by that day. The rest of the cost is due March 8th. If cost is an issue please let us know. We never want cost to be a reason for your teen not to join us.
We hope that you will consider sending your teens…we love hanging out with them and miss them when they aren’t with us…and they are greatly missed by their peers too!
