2019 Youth Spring Retreat
Date: Friday June 7th– Saturday June 8th
Venue: Camp Luther’s Seymour Chalet, Seymour Mountain
Cost: $50 per student
Description: This retreat is an awesome time to disconnect from your iPhone and all the distractions the city has to offer and spend time intentionally looking at God’s Word. So often in life we get easily distracted by everything around us and then next thing you know we haven’t been praying, reading our bibles, or in community for weeks! That’s why this weekend we are going to look at how we form and develop the spiritual disciplines of being in a community of believers, reading our Bibles, and forming a robust prayer life.
By looking at these things we will ultimately see how Jesus frees us from the bondage of sin and works and frees us to develop these disciplines.
The purpose of this retreat is not just a fun final getaway but is also to present a safe environment for the Grade 5s of Christ City Kids to come out and experience what Christ City Youth is all about.
Who can come: Anyone who is in Grade 5 through Grade 12. Registration will close when we reach 30 students.
Transportation: Youth must be dropped off at the Mt. Seymour Chalet at 5pm on Friday June 7th. Traveling west on Hwy. #1, take the Mt. Seymour Parkway exit (#22B) after you cross the Second Narrows Bridge. Merge onto Fern Street then turn right onto Mt. Seymour Parkway. Turn left (north) on Mt. Seymour Road and proceed up the hill to the first parking lot on the left (approximately 11 km from the park gate). Park on the right side of the lot. A Christ City Youth Representative will meet you there.
