2020 Winter Thaw Youth Retreats
Winter will soon be in full swing and I bet you are beginning to miss being at Pine Lake Camps! Pine Lake Camps has some exciting news for you! Our 2020 Winter Thaw Retreats are right around the corner and we hope it will be a time to begin to think about summer so we can thaw out a little from winter. This years theme; "Catching Fire: Igniting our faith in God!" We will focus on how our “faith without works is dead,” from James 2:14-25. We know our works are a sign of the faith we hold in Jesus Christ and how we use our works can either draw us closer to God or closer to the world. We want to use our works to show the change that has occurred on the inside, because of Jesus. Also, what works we do for Jesus can also help us understand what He has created us for. Our prayer is for each student to see how God has created them and encourage them to use those skills to ignite their Faith in God all the more and begin to thaw out from the daily challenges they face.
Dates: Helpful Information:
January 17-19 High Teens (Grades 9-12) 2020 Winter Thaw Packing List
January 24-26 Juniors (Grades 2-5) Schedule Coming Soon!
February 7-9 Teens (Grades 6-8)
What to Expect:
Each retreat is designed to be evangelistic in nature; meaning the Gospel will be clearly presented during the weekend. Fun is mandatory and we want everyone (both camper and leader) to have a blast! Safety is also taken seriously here and we promise to give clear instructions and rules prior to starting games/activities. Make sure to go over the packing lists so you are well prepared for the weekend.
Students register for and attend this retreat with their youth group. This means that 1 male and 1 female leader should be provided for your youth group and they will be staying in separate cabins. Please let us know when you register if you do not have a church to attend with. We would be more than happy to supply a counselor or have your youth take part with another church that is local to you. Leaders are free for the weekend and campers are $90. This covers the cost of food, lodging, and weekend activities.
Below is the sign up link for the Campers or Leaders. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns by calling the camp office (641) 858- 3284 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to answer any questions that you might have for us!
