Students will have fun and be challenged! Each retreat is tailored for a specific age group so students connect to trusted adults who can help them navigate life issues, to peers who are walking right there with them, and to messages resonating with who they’re becoming. 

One of a Kind – Who are you…really? It’s an important question because who you are, and who you think you are, will decide a lot about your life. It’ll impact who you hang out with, what you try, how you treat yourself, and how you treat other people. Long story short, your identity will determine the quality of your life now and in the future. That’s why during this retreat we’ll look beyond the labels and go directly to the only One who can verify who you are and who you were made to be. As we do, you may just find yourself stepping away from average, moving past what is “normal,” and into a life that is one-of-a-kind.
