Dear 6/7 graders going to Refuge this weekend:
We will plan to leave from IN FRONT OF THE CHURCH ON WOODLAWN AT 3:30pm on Friday. That means pulling out at 3:30…the charter bus is on a strict schedule. We will return to the church at 2pm on Sunday. I will have kids call when we are 30 minutes out. Sunday afternoon is also our annual hayride and bonfire at the Hoskyn Farm- we will leave again from the front of the church at 4pm.
SOTO furnishes bedding and towels. Pack light. You will only need money for snacks and SOTO sells shirts/hoodies. If you want to horseback ride, cliff swing, or ropes course on Saturday- that is an additional $10 and we will sign up for ONE of those on Friday night. There are lots of free things to do, too if you don’t want to do a $10 activity.
Let me know if you have any questions. Here is the link for the TWO forms I need back by Thursday afternoon (they are in this post at the bottom). You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me a picture of them. I have to upload them before we leave.
Casual clothes. Toiletries. Warm jacket. A little snack money.
Soto provides bedding & towels
The bare bones schedule:
Friday night: arrive, move in, eat, worship.
Saturday: breakfast, morning watch, worship, big group games, lunch, small group, free activities/hiking/adventure activities, dinner, worship/communion, movie, bed
Sunday: breakfast, morning watch, pack/clean, closing worship, leave.
Sunday, we will leave Soto at 11am and will NOT top for lunch. They will have a wonderful big breakfast.
Here is who I have going:
