What will we do?
We will pray together, play together, eat great food, learn about one’s personal relationship with God and also about how to do scouting as ministry in the church.
Everybody will get to do two (2) of the following three (3) adventures activities: Giant Swing; Zip-line; Challenge Course.
Everybody will also choose three (3) of the following five workshops. For Youth: The Spiritual Life of the Unit; Leading Worship; Religious Emblems and Awards; Service Projects and Missions; Methods of Personal Prayer; Craft Time.

And everybody will also get an open period to play games and sports.
For your greater benefit . . .
We ask that all cell phones and electronic media be put away during program times. Yes, that means adults, too. You can’t pay attention to God and each other if you’re distracted. Wait until you get some personal time during the weekend.
