Additional Information

As you know, most of this trip is a mystery. But, these are the details I can share with you...


  • Friday February 19th we will attempt to leave from the Annex at 4:30pm.
  • We will stop for dinner somewhere on the way to a very unique and special activity stop.
  • After that activity, we will head to our destination for the rest of the time.
  • Beds are provided, and there is heat and hot water. You will need a sleeping bag, though.
  • Accommodations are slightly rustic, but more than adequate. Meals will be provided on site, as well as plenty of snacks.
  • During our time, students will enjoy some great video-based Bible lessons, personal devotional time, deep discussions, various and unique recreation activities, and even a missions project!
  • We'll head back late Sunday morning, eating lunch on the way, and arrive back at the Annex around 3pm! Then, your students can fill you in on all the fun they had...after they nap!
