Youth Retreat 2012

Posted: May 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

The youth retreat is for four days and three nights camp for 12 – 18 years old boys and girls. This retreat will take place July 6th to 9th, at Fort Flagler.

COST: The cost for the retreat is $40 per person. This includes accommodation, eight meals, a t-shirt, transportation, and more. We have kept the cost minimal in order for everyone to be able to attend. We know the economy is making it hard for everyone financially, but with the support from our New Hope International Church has covered most of the cost so more youth can attend. If you would like to help sponsor someone, please let me know.

VENUE: The venue for the retreat is Fort Flagler at Hoskins Camp located approximately 60 miles northwest of Seattle. The camp grounds are owned and operated by the Washington State Park. Youth will stay in heated cabins with two levels: first level for boys and second for girls. Bathrooms are located on the same floor for each level.

PARENTS: Parents are welcome to join us only if you are willing to help with the running of the retreat. Cost of parents is the same, $20 per person. Parents have one option for accommodation staying in cabins with the youth which will be divided male (lower level) and female (upper level).

WHAT TO BRING: Bible, Sleeping bag & pillow, Warm clothing, Towel, Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, soap, etc.), snacks, and outdoor sports equipment (basket ball, football). No cell phone, Ipods/MP3 players, radios, CD players, or videos games.

TRANSPORTATION: Friday afternoon traffic is heavy, so plan on leaving no later than 12:30 pm. We need to be at Fort Flagler by 2:30 p.m. (check in time) on Friday. We will need to take the Kingston Ferry across the Puget Sound so car pooling is encouraged. If you need rides to the retreat, please contact the one of the leaders by June 12th as well.
