WHO: All Youth in 6th – 8th Grade are invited and encouraged to participate. Friends are welcome!
WHAT: Join us for a FUN, INTERACTIVE time, while growing in faith, participating in the ropes course and climbing wall, playing interactive games to get better acquainted and to learn about the Bible and to have a BLAST!

NOTE: On Saturday night, we will drive back to BRPC to see the 300th Anniversary Church Musical, which is happening from 7 – 8 pm. Parents feel free to join us. After staying for dessert (of course), we’ll return to the retreat center. How exciting it will be to support two of our youth who are in this funny musical, and who are coming on our retreat: Tommy M. and Libby S.
NOT ABLE TO ATTEND ENTIRE RETREAT? That’s okay. This retreat center is 10 minutes from BRPC so your parents can drop you off at the retreat center later, or pick you up earlier, if needed. Just mark your hours on the form or call Cathi to discuss options (908)-240-2060.
