Staff Training Retreat

 NEW last year! 


New in 2014 we invited all staff to participate in a Staff Training Weekend Retreat at New Life Camp in Durham. A total of 30 staff and some family members joined us to relax and get away from the routines of life at home, to hang out with old and new friends, to participate in team building activities, training sessions, and times of focusing and preparing on what God has in store for camp.  It was an awesome time! 



We will be returning to New Life Camp this year, Friday, June 5 to Sunday, June 7.  

Join us for a weekend away filled with hangin' out with old and new friends, campfires, fun outdoor activities, and preparation for camp.  It's an opportunity to get to know the rest of the team, to shift our focus, and to give you the necessary tools to help you discover your best fit and to prepare you to do your best while serving at camp.
