Spend the beginning of your Christmas break at Cedarkirk! You don’t have to wait until summer to see your counselors and friends, or do all of your favorite summer camp activities! The Christmas Retreat brings you a little bit of summer camp in the winter. (We can’t promise you snow, but it will be cooler than it is in the summer – and you might even need a jacket!) We’ll talk about what the birth of Christ means for us in 2021, eat lots of holiday treats, and enjoy the company of friends, new and old, in this beautiful place.
Ages: This retreat is open to all campers currently in 1st-12th grades.
Groups: Campers will be housed in small units with other campers of similar age and supervised by a counselor. Two of those units (two counselors together with the campers in their room/cabin) make up a family group for the weekend.
Supervision: Counselors from previous summers will shepherd our campers through the weekend as they build relationships, explore their faith and the Christmas story, and take part in camp activities with a holiday twist. All staff have been through extensive training and undergone a Level II background screening through DCF and FDLE. For more information on our supervision policies, click here.
Campers will take part in most of Cedarkirk’s activities (e.g. zip line, climbing wall, archery, slingshots, games, Bible study, gaga ball, worship, campfire, line dance). We usually do not do any water activities during the Christmas Retreat due to the likelihood of cold temperatures, though we may look for shark’s teeth in the river if the air is warm.
