The Spring Teen Retreat is a unique time for teens to gather around the Word of God learning life applications and wisdom for living in the world for the glory of Jesus Christ.

Living A Better Story: Four Scenes from the Book of Acts
The Book of Acts focuses on the Sovereign God’s activity in sending out witnesses to the Good News of Jesus Christ. Acts gives us a picture of the Church’s beginning and her mission to engage her community and reach the world. That’s the larger story of Acts. God’s the main character, and He’s on a rescue mission. But that larger story is made up of a lot of different smaller stories—scenes, you might call them. During this year’s Spring Teen Retreat we’re looking together at four scenes from Acts that invite us to join the Early Church in living a better story, a story that reveals the limitless power and boundless love of God.

An offering will be taken at the Lord’s Supper to help defray the expenses for the weekend.

Registration: Friday, 6:30 – 7:30 pm
(No Supper is provided Friday Night – There will be a snack time later in the evening)

Pickup: Sunday, 11:30 am
(No lunch will be provided)

Dress Guidelines

How we dress DOES impact others! We are continually challenged by the world’s idea of what is “Acceptable” aren’t we? Here at Camp Hope we strive to present ourselves in a positive way by dressing modestly. Here are some guidelines that will help show honor and respect to our Lord as well as to the other campers and staff.

Modesty is so important to us here at Camp Hope that we will ask any camper to change clothes if they are not within these guidelines.

  • Shorts length- no shorter than longest finger when hanging at your side (Approx. mid thigh)
    Knit cheerleader shorts will be allowed meeting the above criteria.
  • Swimsuit that are modest one piece (no two piece or tankinis) with no cleavage visible and with modest cut for top of leg area
  • Sunday dress includes above criteria and can include: nice slacks or capris, dress-skirt length no shorter than 4” above the knee, no strapless dresses even worn w/ sweater.
