The retreat is open to all families associated with GBC. Students in 8th grade and older may attend with or without their family. We will be going to Woodcrest Retreat Center, which is about half an hour from the church. There will be the option of a boys’ cabin or girls’ cabin, and then cabins available for those who are coming as a family. (There is a possibility of tent or camper camping if we ask early enough.) We will meet at the camp at 5pm and return by Sunday 5pm. If you need a ride to the camp, please let us know ASAP, as we will need to arrange for a vehicle or carpool. All meals, lodging and swimming are included in the price. You should bring all linens, clothing, personal items, flashlights, bug spray, water bottle, etc that you will need for rustic camping. There are bathhouses, but the cabins are basic bunkhouses with walls, a roof and bunkbeds.

The weekend will include group Bible devotional time, camping fun, games, swimming, and more. This will be a great time for friends and families to learn from each other and have lots of fun. We prepare meals as a group, you may volunteer to help Carrie in the kitchen. Please register ASAP as we need to know our number for the Camp and meal preparations.
