Summer Camp Packed into One Weekend

What is Kids’ Spring Retreat?

Kids’ Spring Retreat is a two-night retreat where summer camp is jam-packed into one exciting weekend. The weekend is filled with fun games, a great speaker, and impactful worship. We believe that 3rd – 6th graders are more open to hearing the Gospel and have a capacity to begin following God with abandonment. This retreat is meant to help children ‘spring’ into worshipping and knowing God for maybe the first time.
