Great Awakening Retreat

– Press Release

Is your child looking for a new adventure? When was the last time he/she went camping? At The Great Awakening Youth Re­treat campers can set up tents right next to the bayou, pile friends in, and enjoy laughing the night away by the firepit. The Great Awakening Youth Retreat is committed to providing a safe, enjoy­able and exciting experience for all campers from 12 – 19 years old to learn and grow in God’s will. The opportunity to gain new skills through activity involvement as well as life lessons from community living and staff guidance is a fundamental aspect of our philosophy. It’s important for youth to participate in activi­ties to help to foster close relationships between each other and God. The Retreat also provide opportunities for teens to invite non-Christian friends who are wary of organized religion to less-threatening events. This camp is not about snacks & games. This is about what is missing in the church and the lives of His people. It’s about restoring the identity of God’s people in grace & holi­ness, made perfect in His love.

Each morning small groups will meet and have a student led devotional. Some may choose to incorporate a quiet time and reflect on God’s changes in their lives. Some may use this time to share and connect with fellow campers. Throughout each day, the campers will rotate stations with their instructors which in­clude bible study, fishing, archery, animal imprinting, crafts, train rides, alligator feedings and hours of free time to explore! During nightly worship, each camper will enjoy live music, live enter­tainment, and a Christian speaker bringing God’s word. A time of reflection and dedication will be provided.

The cost per camper is $25 and that includes lunches and din­ners, all daily activities, and use of Diamond Don’s RV Park & Campground located
