is a camping youth retreat taking place May 25-27, 2018. Our desire is to facilitate a weekend where communities can connect together and grow in their relationship with each other and with Jesus Christ.
Everyone who comes to The Weekend registers as a member of a group. The registration fee covers program, camp site, and meals from Saturday breakfast to Sunday lunch. If campers opt out of meals, the price remains the same. Tuck shop (snacks), café items, and any merchandise are an additional expense.
Leaders are free.
