Crooked Creek Baptist will be sponsoring a retreat for youth in grades 4-8 for the weekend of August 16-18.

They can be picked up by parents following the service around 11:45 a.m-12 noon.

We will meet at the church at 6:30 p.m. (please have your child eat dinner) on Friday evening and depart for Indian Creek Baptist Camp near Bedford, IN. We will be staying at the air-conditioned lodge for the weekend which features separate dorm style housing for boys and girls. Retreaters will be asked to bring their own shower supplies including towels and linens, sleeping bags, etc. A full detailed packing list will be provided at your child’s registration. Meals will be provided as part of this event and we will also (weather permitting) have access to the camp’s swimming pool and GaGa ball pit. Just FYI- Ipods, I pads, and other electronic gaming equipment will not be permitted for this weekend!

Cost for the retreat is $70 and will cover meals, overnight lodging, swimming pool use, etc… Scholarship support is available for families who qualify. A special discount is available for children who bring a friend with them for this weekend. Both would pay a discounted fee of only $55. Youth older than 8th grade can still join us for this event in a leadership capacity. Children younger than 4th grade will not be able to join us for this event.
