(skis, snowboards, ice skates, tubing, snow shoes, broomball, etc.)

Lodging: We’ll be staying in nice, heated cabins right next to the lake. Each cabin sleeps 9 and we’ll have 1-2 youth leaders per cabin of students (separated by gender). Heated bathrooms are in each cabin. Plan to pack your own sleeping bag or bedding, towels, soap, shampoo, etc. Bring warm clothing for outdoor activities. We will be tubing, snowshoeing and playing broomball as group activities

Cost/registration: The cost for the whole weekend is $140 (you’ll also need spending money for two fast-food stops), but you can raise about $50 of this by committing to help with the Valentine Dinner Show the night of Feb. 9th (based on funds raised). There is also a gift shop and snack bar in the main chalet . So, online registration and your $25 Winter Retreat deposit are due by Sun Feb 4st. (To BEN) The balance of your registration fee is due by Sunday, Feb. 11th. Space is limited to 30 students, so sign up early!
