The 2nd annual 7th and 8th grade Spiritual Retreat will be Friday-Saturday, October 25th and 26th!
The students and faculty will depart after an early 11:30 lunch for Camp Sycamore in Joelton, and will return Saturday afternoon around 2PM.
There are three main purposes for this event.
One objective is to focus on spiritual content and a relationship with God in an outdoor setting.
A second goal is to foster relationships among students with their peers and with their teachers outside of the classroom.
A final purpose is to teach and challenge them to be intentional positive leaders around each other and for the younger 5th and 6th graders when they return to campus.
The cost per student is $35, which covers transportation, 3 meals, one night lodging, the bonfire, and utilization of the ropes course and zip-line. The total amount and a signed permission form will be due by Thursday, October 17th.

The Spiritual Retreat’s agenda is to go deep.
Fun and memorable are important ingredients, but our focus will be on building relationships and cultivating spiritual connection and renewal.
“During last year's retreat, walls came down and hearts opened up,” recalls Jeff Brothers, one of the leaders. “Relationships were fostered among those who participated: students, faculty, staff and God. It’s a great way to come back and begin the new year—like a spiritual Homecoming.”
"I hope the students and parents are excited about these retreats, ” said Phillip Montgomery, one of last year’s leaders. “It is a great opportunity to bond with one another and deepen our relationship with God. Mr. Tipps and Mrs. Shelton have worked hard to keep the retreat affordable so that all of the students have a chance to participate.”
