Retreats

Our retreats are usually the highlight of the school year for our students. They offer an opportunity to get away from our weekly routines and connect with God in a refreshing location among friends.

Middle School BREAKAWAY Retreat 
October 6 -8, 2017

Sign up here!

In October, 6th-8th grade students and leaders head to NorthBay Adventure Camp in Maryland for the Breakaway retreat. The camp is in Maryland on the Chesapeake with some wonderful views of the bay - especially as you are zooming down a zip line! Some of our students can participate in a talent show, showing off their comedic and acting skills. We will overcome our fears on an alpine swing, roast marshmallows over a bonfire, and sing praises to our Lord with hundreds of students from all over the Philadelphia area. Our speaker this year is Andy Thrift who loves chain saws, bikes, wrestling with his kids and trying to learn American sports. This retreat is a highlight of the year for the students who attend.

High School Reality Conference
November 3 - 5, 2017

Sign up here!

We partner with the Donegal Prebytery as over a hundred high school students from a dozen local churches descend onto North Bay Adventure Camp in North East, MD for a weekend of crazy games, funny skits, worship music, and engaging speakers.  Students have several interesting workshops to choose from to discuss redemptive themes in TV shows, books, and music.
