 Winter Retreat


February/March 2018


Our Winter Retreat is reserved for our Spiritformation youth (7th - 9th graders).  While the aim is to connect with God, we also get to sled and swim in the same day (weather permitting)! We retreat for a weekend to Punderson State Park in Newbury, Ohio.




We eat together, play together, study together. And, on Sunday morning, we come back up to Celebration and worship together. If you are wondering what to bring, check it out here

$20 Registration fee due to Pastor Laura by February 1.

Service Projects, a lock-in at Holy Trinity Lutheran, Akron on Friday night, and workshop opportunities druing the day on Friday. 


Two chaperones needed.




7th -12th graders retreat annually to Camp Frederick in Rogers, Ohio. The 7th-9th graders work with Pastor Laura on some learning and discipleship things; the 10th-12th graders do an all day service project. Together we have more fun than is humanly allowed: camp fires, human clue, star gazing, teenage jungle-gym and more!
