Lodge Retreat

Each year the week before students depart for Christmas Break we take our students to a set of rented lodges in Lands Creek, North Carolina. During this time students take time to get to no each other to small rituals and games. During the school year the athletic and arts focused students are commonly seperated, this retreat allows all of them to integrate and get to know each other and form friendships beyond their focus.
