Winter Retreat

Winter is here, which means camp is around the corner! This is our biggest event of the year, and one you definitely do not want to miss. Join us for a incredible time sledding down the largest sledding hill you've seen in your life, giant snowball fights, crazy dance parties, and a speaker who will change the way you see yourself and God.

The Plan

We will be meeting at Woodinville Alliance Church at 10 AM on Friday January 19 to check all students and leaders in, get their bags onto the charter buses, and go over logistics for camp. We will then be leaving Woodinville Alliance Church at 11 AM to head over to Ghormley Meadow.  

We will leave Ghormley Meadow at 1 PM on Sunday, Jan 21. The trip back is estimated to be 6 hours, and so we will plan on arriving back at Woodinville Alliance Church at 7 PM. The length of this trip will be determined by weather and traffic conditions, though, and we will therefore not arrive exactly at 7 PM most likey. Austin will keep you up to date on our progress throughout the trip via text and email.  Please be ready to come pick up your student anytime Sunday evening.

Donations

Every year, there are tons of students who want to join us for a life changing experience at Winter Retreat, but simply do not have the funds.  Last year, we were able to gather together some extra money to help some students out, but I hope to be able to do far more than that this year. And I'm asking you to be apart of making that happen.

During the registration process, you will see a section called "Add On's," with a box that says, "Donate." If you would like to help students who are struggling financially to be able to go to winter retreat, please click this box, and enter in the number of dollars you would like to donate to our scholarship fund.

If you are someone who is not attending winter retreat, but would like to simply donate, please register as a "donor," and when you see the "Add On's," section, check the box that says "Donate," and enter in the number of dollars you would like to donate to the scholarship fund.

Thank you so much for your generosity!  You are making a difference in the spiritual development of a student that will last a lifetime!
