What to expect:
You are about to embark on a weekend designed to help you grow close to God and close to others. This is one of our favorite things we do all year!
Some logistical things to note: Students will transport themselves to retreat. We encourage carpools and will help find one for you if you can't find one for yourself. Because you have a car there, we encourage you to explore the town during free time, sit by the pool, or just take a nap! We do 4 students to a 2 Queen room. Bed sharing is really common but students can sleep on the couch if that feels most comfortable. The meals provided will be an optional breakfast, and a great dinner off campus with your group (think Chipotle, MOD Pizza, and Habit Burger).
This retreat will NOT be your average weekend! We are glad you decided to come and we are confident that God will speak directly to you. For the next three nights, you will be living in community. To do this well and to ensure a positive experience will take some effort on your part. Rather than assuming that we are all on the same page, we thought we would make it easy and spell out exactly what will be expected of you this weekend. If you decide that you cannot live according to these guidelines, that is fine; just know that we cannot allow you to join us on the retreat. As you know, this CM trip is sponsored by Saddleback Church. Therefore, this trip was planned with the following values in mind: spiritual growth, community, honesty, and fun. To be sure these values are realized, we are asking that you comply and agree with the following
