YOUTH - Fall Retreat 2018


Hurricane Florence interrupted our Fall Retreat but we've rescheduled and are opening this event up once again to all LUMC Youth.  (If you registered for the original retreat, there is no need to register again.)  Deadline for new registrations is Oct. 14th.


Nov. 9th-11th

     It's time for our annual fall Youth Group getaway and we can’t wait!  This year we're heading up the Eastern Shore to CAMP SILVER BEACH. In addition to the wonderful activities CSB has to offer, we’ll enjoy our own fun and games, plus great fellowship, inspiring worship, and the opportunity to dig into God’s Word through personal quiet time, small group Bible Study and our large group teaching time.   
     We’ll stay in comfortable cabins and be served delicious meals at the dining hall. Please let Marlene know by October 14th if you have any food allergies or special dietary needs.  (Please note that this is only for true medical needs and not for "personal preferences."  A special meal will be prepared for you.  Because there are often 100+ diners, the dining hall staff does not have the ability to accommodate each individual's preferences.) 

     The FINAL DAY TO REGISTER IS OCTOBER 14th. REMINDER:  Because of the nature of our program, participants must be able to attend the entire weekend (no arriving late or leaving early).

     Once you've registered, you'll receive retreat information and updates via your email.  Be sure to check it regularly!
     Thank you to those who volunteered to provide snacks for the Retreat.  You may sign up via Sign-Up Genius with this LINK.


The retreat is open to LUMC Youth in grades 6-12.  Adult drivers, chaperones and program assistants are needed.  Please use the online registration form to advise us of your interest.  

COST*:  $130 per person for students and adults - includes transportation, activities, 4 meals and two nights' lodging. Registration fee (check payable to LUMC Youth) is due no later than October 14th.

(*Financial assistance is available for youth and adults through our Youth Scholarship Fund.  Please contact Marlene Passarelli if you would benefit from full or partial assistance with the registration fee.)
