Lodging: We will be staying in the retreat center at Camp Perkins, which are nicer motel-style rooms that have their own toilet and shower in each room. Each room contains a queen bed, a bunk bed with two twin mattresses, and a window bed that is a twin mattress. Each room will sleep 5 people fairly comfortably.
Food: All meals will be cooked by camp staff starting with dinner on Monday through breakfast on Wednesday morning. Cost of meals is included in the registration. Please let Camp Perkins know of any food allergies no later than August 1 — they can accommodate almost all allergies or dietary needs!
Why: With the growing presence of youth ministry in South Idaho in our churches, it is important for us to get together to:
· Grow in our craft through best practices in ministry discussions
· Lending support to one another in high and low moments in ministry
· Set a cohesive plan for youth ministry in South Idaho for the year ahead by making sure that we hit the best dates for events so that more kids can be impacted by the gospel
· Retreat with your families to recharge and reset so that your ministry can have a high impact when you return to it
The cost of this event is being offset by both the Northwest District and Camp Perkins.
