Fall Retreat

September 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - October 1, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Make plans to join us for a weekend with other Christian Challenge groups from all across Colorado. The retreat will be held at Ponderosa Retreat and Conference Center in Larkspur, CO. This is the perfect opportunity to get away and focus on what Jesus Christ wants to do in and through your life this semester.

The cost for camping is $40 and the cost to stay in the lodge is $80.  Meals are included in the cost. A $20 non-refundable deposit is due NO LATER THAN Friday, September 22nd.  If you are interested in attending the retreat, please read through the details and then complete the form below.

WE WILL BE CARPOOLING. Due to space for parking, DO NOT plan to take your vehicle unless we request that you do so. We will meet/load up in front of the CLOCK TOWER at 5:00PM on Friday, September 29th. Please remember to bring your liability form if you have not already turned it in AND/OR your final payment if it is still owed.  (The links are below for downloading a form and to find our Venmo account.)

What to bring…
> For those in the LODGE…you will have a bunk bed with a mattress only. Anything else you need/want, YOU MUST BRING.
> For those CAMPING…camping supplies will be coordinated through the registration form, and we will contact you as needed.
> Everyone will need to bring a towel (if you plan to shower), and any toiletries you need. > Everyone should bring a Bible, a notebook, and something to write with.
> Everyone should pack with the temperature and weather forecast in mind.  (For those CAMPING, you may want to consider additional layers of clothes or blankets, dependent on weather.)
> You may also want to bring a flashlight.
> FEEL FREE TO BRING A FAVORITE GAME TO PLAY.  There will be a few opportunities throughout the weekend for you to join in with others to play a variety of games.
> FEEL FREE TO BRING DISCS FOR DISC GOLF IF YOU HAVE THEM. They have an excellent course, so you may want to play.  (If you don’t have any, we may have some for you to borrow this weekend.)
