Summer Staff Retreat

Summer Staff Retreat

Date: TBA

Hello friends,

We have changed the dates for our Summer Staff Retreat. Our hope is that by moving this away from the holiday season this year, it would make it easier for you to attend. The retreat is a great time for you to come and be refreshed and catch a vision for the summer. It is for past summer staff, in-trainings, volunteers, as well as those who are interested in serving in any of those positions for the summer. The retreat gives previous summer staff the opportunity to catch up with old friends and for those checking us out for the first time; it gives an opportunity to get a picture of the summer.

We want to invest in you! We want to see you grow! The core of the activities will take place on Saturday at 9:30am and run into the evening. On Saturday evening, we will host for you a Thank You Dinner! This is just a small token of our appreciation for all the hard work that past summer staff have put in and thanking those who are looking to. We realize that some people may only be able to come for the day and we are trying to make it so they don’t miss out on anything. The evening of Friday the 7th and the morning of Sunday the 9th will be a little more relaxed, for those who need a place to stay overnight if they have traveled a distance. The cost information is below. When you respond, please indicate the date/time of your estimated arrival and departure on the registration form and return your Medical and Horse Liability Release Form. If under 18, paperwork needs to be signed by a parent or guardian. Give us a call if you have any questions.


  • Friday night through Sunday morning is $45
  • Saturday and one night is $40
  • Just Saturday is $30
  • However, if you have sent in an application for summer staff, there is no cost.

If you know of anyone you think would be a great fit for our summer ministry, and then please pass along our information. Attendance does not guarantee summer employment.

What to bring: If staying overnight; bedding, toiletries, and changes of clothes. For everyone; Bible, notebook, and most importantly a heart that is ready to be encouraged and to encourage others! Our goal is that you will be refreshed in your walk with the Lord. We hope to see you!
