We will be joining other youth groups from the PSWC (Pacific Southwest Conference) at Mission Springs in Santa Cruz for an amazing weekend of worship, dynamic speakers, and fun!

As much of the retreat as possible will be outdoors. When indoors, masks are required. All students, leaders, and staff are required to bring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test from within the last 72 hours.

Lodging: We will be staying at the Mission Springs Conference Center. The PSWC team has said that rooms will not be packed full, but smaller groups of 3-4 will be in each room. Most rooms have their own bathroom.

Packing: a full packing list will be sent out a week or so before the trip. Plan on layers (it could be pretty chilly in SC in November), jacket, sleeping bag/pillow, towel, toiletries, and possibly a camping chair.

Food: most meals will be at the camp, however we will stop for dinner on Friday night and Lunch on Sunday. We will also likely make an ice cream run. Please send cash with your student.

Transportation: Like our summer camping trip, everyone is expected to wear their masks while we are in vehicles. Our amazing leaders will be driving. We will confirm departure time closer to the trip but anticipate getting students to HC as close to 3:00pm as possible.

Cost: early bird registration is $199 until 10/24. Late bird registration is $219 on or after 10/25. A $25, nonrefundable deposit holds your spot. You can pay by check or cash Sundays at the back counter, Wednesdays at LH, or with a debit/credit card online by clicking here
