Laurel Ridge Camp and Retreat Center
August 6-10, 2018
Every summer, we want to provide our students with the opportunity to serve and love on our community and surrounding areas by engaging their hearts to interact with the needs and worlds of others. Over the past couple of years, we have done this by serving the Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina. Our heart has been to reach every home in the state and invite them to take part in a summer camp for their students (who don't usually get afforded the opportunity for such camps) free of charge to them! Our students pay their way and also staff the camp by leading Small Groups and forming valuable relationships with the students from each of these homes. We see so much value in this trip because our students are learning to interact with peers and learning to love them where they are - a practice we hope everyone attending will take home with them.
With these kinds of expectations, and a limit on how many people will be able to go, we've had to limit our spots, so sign up soon! This trip will be only High School students from 9th-12th grade, and we want as many students as possible to go with us and learn what it looks like to be Jesus to the people around you, discover how he moves in the lives of others, and take these things back home to spark something fresh in the schools and neighborhoods of our community.
We have some pretty important due dates and preparation meetings to get us ready for our trip! Our interest meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 13th at 8:45pm. Monday, July 16th will be our first official meeting in which the student application, the deposit of $100 is due, and the fundraising support letter is due to staff in order to secure a spot on the trip. Monday, July 23rd and Monday, July 30th students will meet in their respective groups for camp (to be assigned). Our final meeting will take place on Sunday, August 5th where we will complete final preparations and have an intentional time of prayer before we leave on Monday, August 6th!
ALL MEETINGS ARE MANDITORY
Please carve this time out as a priority if you are planning to come with us. At these meetings we will be communicating crucial information about the trip, expectations, deadlines and due dates for important documents and trip requirements. We hope to see you there, and we can't wait to serve these communities with you this summer!
