This High School Camp out is an introduction to backpacking camping. On this trip, youth will be packing 1.5 miles into a back country site, setting up camp, cooking with trail stoves, carrying food and water, etc. This will be primitive camping where facilities will be minimal. Youth will need to bring their own gear. Loaner gear will be available on a limited basis. There are 2 pre-meetings. One is Sunday April 28th at FUMC-RR. It will cover what is expected for the camp out and give participants a personal gear checklist. Participants will need to acquire the personal gear they need by the May 5th meeting where we will do a shakedown of gear to make sure everyone is ready to go. Some gear may be available for loan on a limited first-come, first served basis. Rooms and times for the April 28th and May 5th meeting will be communicated to the registered participants.
This camp out is designed to give students an opportunity to bond in their faith, in an outdoor setting, and prepare for future outdoor events. During the camp out, a faith program will be provided Saturday.
It is that time of year again!!! We are sad to see our Seniors leave but we so enjoy getting to celebrate this milestone with them. If you would like to attend our Senior Recognition Luncheon, click HERE to register.
