Not a Fan
Dean: Andrew Johnson
Check-in: July 14 @ 6:00pm
Parent Pick-up: July 19 @ 7:00pm
Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus issued a compelling and challenging invitation to follow him. He’s not interested in mere fans. He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He wants completely committed followers.
This week is designed for the student that want to make a lasting memory and have extreme experiences.
During this week we will be building and strengthening our faith and relationship with God, through experiential learning. These lessons will be reinforced in the campers lives; as we work, live and have fun together. You will get dirty, tired and experience things that are physically, mentally, and spiritually challenging.
In 2019, activities include (subject to weather and water levels): team building challenge course, mountain river tubing, whitewater rafting, and others activities. Our adventures will begin at Woodland Lakes. On Tuesday morning we will head to Cherokee, NC. We will be camping at a private campground. We will spend a day tubing on the creek in a near by state park. On Thursday we will be Whitewater Rafting on the Nantahala River. (Students will be camping in tents in NC, and showers will be available every day.)
Parents will be given a letter at the beginning of the week with our schedule and cell numbers to reach their child in an event of an emergency. You will also receive a letter before the week begins to inform you of what you need to bring and be prepared for. If you have questions about Jr. High Extreme: Contact- Andrew Johnson (937)205-7714.
*If your family has a tent that we could use that would be great.
