ATTENTION: Last Minute Retreat Details!!!

10 Aug

Okay, guys.  So here are the finalized details about when to meet on Friday, what to bring, what not to bring, etc.

Meeting Time on Friday

Be at church by 12:30 p.m.  The bus will leave at 1:30 p.m. SHARP.  But we’re going to need to pack up the buses so be there early.  Note:  There will be no lunch provided – so eat lunch BEFORE you come to church.  Dinner that night, will be served at 7:00 p.m.  We will arrive back at church on Sunday around 1:00 p.m.

What to Bring:

  1. ONE SLEEPING BAG/PILLOW PER CAMPER.  So, it turns out that we DO have to bring these, so spread the word:  BRING SLEEPING BAGS and pillows! (one per camper).
  2. TOWELS for showers/washing up/swimming.
  3. BIBLES AND WRITING MATERIAL (e.g. notebook, paper, pens, pencils, etc.).
  4. COMFORTABLE CLOTHING suitable for either warm or cool days, warm jackets or sweaters and comfortable walking shoes.
  5. TOILETRIES (shampoo, toothbrush/paste, etc.)
  6. WATER BOTTLE to keep you hydrated.
  7. FLASHLIGHT to get around at night.
  8. MODEST SWIMWEAR. Only one piece modest swimwear is to be worn on the grounds of Forest Home. A T-shirt or cover-up must be worn outside the pool and lake areas.  (Note:  Swimming is optional)
  9. SPENDING MONEY to cover the Clubhouse, crafts, miniature golf, ping pong, or foosball, and the Outfitters Bookstore.
  10. MP3 PLAYERS okay.
  11. SNACKS to eat on the bus ride.

*** Note:  ALL of these things (with the possible exception of the sleeping bag/pillow) can be fit into a SMALL tote bag or SMALL suitcase.

What NOT to bring:

  1. Drugs of any kind, alcohol of any kind, weapons of any kind.  Cigarettes are also prohibited.  If there is even a hint of any of these, all parties involved will be asked to call their parents to come pick you up from the camp immediately.
  2. Cell phones.  If there’s an emergency, all of the teachers will have access to the camp’s phones to call parents.
