The Middle School Elevate Retreat for grades 6 - 8, is an exciting time to get refreshed, build relationships, and encounter God. This year will include Tribal wars, crews, sessions, and much more! Most importantly, students will have the opportunity to grow in their faith - no matter
where they are currently at. Throughout the weekend, they will learn about what it means
to be truly passionate about their walk with Christ.

Life-Changing Crews

Each student will be placed in a Crew with 5 - 6 other students for the weekend, based on their grade and gender. They will have one of our awesome adult leaders with them. Each crew will travel together, bunk together, compete together, and grow together.

Location & Accommodations

We will be staying at Camp Joy El in Greencastle, PA. It is a wonderful site that provides a great atmosphere for games, relay races, and large group sessions. All students will stay in several
large cabins.

February 1-25
