Sixth Grade Science Retreat
In the Fall, sixth grade students embark on an overnight retreat to a local camp in order to explore God’s creation and build relationships. The students engage in a study of stream and forest ecology as well as participate in low ropes initiatives. Free times and craft times give the students opportunities to build friendships and work together as teams.
SEVENTH GRADE CAVING RETREAT
In the Fall, seventh grade students embark on a three-day, two-night retreat to a camp in eastern Tennessee. The main focus of the retreat is an excursion into a wild cave to study cave formations. Students will also participate in low ropes initiatives to develop teamwork. Group devotions will also challenge students in their walk with Christ.
EIGHTH GRADE RETREATS
Eighth grade students participate in two retreats during their final year of middle school. The first, a day retreat in the Fall, takes place at a local camp. Students engage in low and high ropes initiatives with purpose of building teamwork among the students. The second retreat, a three-day and two-night trip to Charleston, takes place in the Spring to close out their middle school careers. Students spend one night aboard the USS Yorktown, a World War II era air craft carrier and a second night at an area retreat center. Fun and education mix as students relive history aboard the ship while also having some time to relax at the beach. Final night devotions include messages of blessings and remembrances from their middle school teachers.
