Youth Winter Retreat

February 16 - February 19

Refreshing Mountain Retreat & Adventure Center


Ministry:

, ,

Registration is now open for the 2024 Youth Winter Retreat, which is for Jr. High and Sr. High students (grades 6 through 12). The retreat will be held February 16-19, 2024.

Winter Retreat is a great opportunity to get away from all the pressures in Northern Virginia to hear from the Lord, and grow closer to Him. Besides hearing from God, we strongly believe students need to be together with other brothers and sisters in Christ.

Registration is now full!

RETREAT LOCATION: REFRESHING MOUNTAIN RETREAT AND ADVENTURE CENTER

We will travel to Refreshing Mountain, located approximately 20 miles north of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1983 by Marlin and Sharon Harnish as a place where families could be refreshed. The Harnish family still operates the retreat center. The emergency contact number is 717-738-1490.

COST

Register by Sunday, December 17, 2023: $210
Register by Sunday, January 14, 2024: $230
Register AFTER January 14, 2024: $250

If you have 3 or more students going on the Winter Retreat, please contact us at youth@restonbible.org for a discount code.

SPEAKER

Instead of having a single speaker, we are mixing things up this year and will have multiple speakers addressing the topic of “Where is God?” As we look at all the hard things going on in the world around us, we can take comfort and be strengthened when we rest in the sovereignty of the Lord.

MORE INFO

Bring: Winter clothes, sleeping bag, pillow, towel, toiletries, shower shoes, Bible, pen, flashlight, and a great attitude!

Do Not Bring: Anything that could endanger anyone or could be lost, stolen, or broken. Do not bring any electronics (including cell phones), cigarettes, drugs, knives, or prank supplies. If a student brings any of these things, we will take and hold the items until we return from camp. Parents will be asked to come into RBC to pick them up.

Schedule: Students need to arrive at Reston Bible Church by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 16, so that luggage and all students and leaders can be loaded and leave by 2:30 p.m. Everyone will return to Reston Bible Church on Monday, February 19, between 4:00 and 4:30 pm. You will receive an email on Monday when we depart the retreat center with a more accurate ETA.

Contact Lee at leebanton@restonbible.org if you have any questions.
