Jr. High Retreat
A weekend that brings together high adventure and worship as we discover the outdoors, strengthen friendships, and strengthen foundations in Christ. Sixth through eighth graders go to Whitewater Express Ocoee Camp in Ducktown, TN. Activities included horseback riding, paintball, and mountain biking as well as horseshoes, hayrides, disc golf, low ropes, and campfires. Our next trip is scheduled for November 3, 2017 through November 5, 2017.
Sr. High Winter Retreat
Students in grades 9-12 joined us this year on our Senior High Retreat to Glisson Camp and Retreat Center! We had opportunities to hike together, conquer our ropes course fears, and sit fireside with marshmallows. We stayed in cabins and had fellowship time together on Friday and Saturday evening where we reflected on the ways God is working in our individual lives.
Youth Mission Trip
Responding to the World Around Us
Hurricane Harvey smashed into the coast of Texas in late August 2017, immediately creating one of the largest natural disasters in the United States since Hurricane Katrina. This summer the Shallowford youth have an incredible opportunity to mobilize through Experience Mission and help our neighbors in a time of great need. We will unplug from our regular lives, including our electronics, and immerse ourselves in mission.
Trip Dates: June 24, 2018 through June 30, 2018
Deposit due December 1, 2017: $200
Total Cost due February 1, 2018: $375
Montreat Youth Conference
An annual favorite of youth at Shallowford is our trip to the Montreat Youth Conference where our youth have the opportunity to join together with other young people from all over the country for a week of study, worship, and recreation. A typical day includes morning energizers, keynote speakers, music, small group discussion, recreation, and worship.
The conferences for youth at Montreat Conference Center model true Christian commitment and community. Our young people who attend are both challenged and comforted. They leave empowered, encouraged, and encircled by new friends. Likewise, the leaders who attend with them begin to see their connectedness with the greater church and the vast community of Christ. They take home the tools they need to expand the Montreat experience into the everyday lives of their young people. This trip is available to all high school students, entering high school freshmen through graduated high school seniors.
Trip Dates: July 15, 2018 through July 21, 2018
Deposit due December 1, 2017: $100
Total Cost due April 1, 2018: $275
