Woodmont Hills Family Retreat

Family Retreat 2015 Picture Info Graphic

We are tentatively planning a Family Retreat this summer from July 4-6 but need to gauge interest before we go through with planning. If you and your family would be interested in a weekend of fun activities, connecting time, and growing closer with other families let us know about it by taking this survey. The cost is $75 per person over the age of 6, and children 5 and under are free.

Family Worship and Meet the Interns!

Tomorrow night at 5:30pm will be a spaghetti dinner for $5/person in the lobby followed by a whole-family worship in the Great Hall led by our youth praise band at 6:30. 

  THEN, as if that’s not enough greatness, the youth group will spend the rest of time meeting our brand new, still-got-that-new-intern-smell, 2015 interns! That will take place in the youth room after our time of worship.

Additional info:

  • Lunches are not provided and need to be packed for each day. Put the lunch in a plastic bag with the camper’s name on it, because lunches will be kept on ice in coolers along with the other members of the crew. (Often, crew leaders will plan to go somewhere to eat lunch one day during the week. Make sure your camper lets you know about this, so you can send money instead of a lunch.)
  • Campers will get paint on their clothes, plan accordingly.
  • Campers must wear closed-toe shoes, no exceptions.
  • If a student has to miss a day, David and Jesse need to know so they can report to their crew leaders. However, we do not encourage students to miss time unless it is absolutely necessary.
  • Each student will be responsible for bringing his/her own 4″ paint brush, spray bottle, heavy duty paint scraper, and work gloves.
  • Wear sunscreen.
  • If you have ladders we can borrow, please let us know. Ideally if you are able to transport the ladder to and from Woodmont yourself.
  • During the afternoon break, we encourage families who live close and are able to pick up their campers to do so. If it’s not possible to arrange getting them home in the afternoon, please consider sending them with a friend that can be picked up. We’ll let you know if any other options become available.
  • Nightly dinners are included in the cost.
  • Crews consist of teens from various youth groups from around the region. Crew assignments are more-or-less randomly generated to create diversity. This provides a wonderful opportunity to make connections with teens outside of our youth group.
  • Each crew will have around 10-20 campers and two or three crew leaders. There are also “sector leaders” that check in with crews throughout the day.
  • If special arrangements need to be made to pick up or drop off a camper from their work site, be sure your camper gets their crew leaders’ contact information. They will receive the address of their work site along with their crew assignments on Sunday night.

Again, please comment below if you have any additional questions. Thank you!

No Youth Classes Sunday

Middle and High School classes will not be meeting this Sunday due to the Memorial Day holiday.

New Text Alerts

Many of you are familiar with our previous texting service called YapTap which is no longer available, but we found a new one that will allow us to send you occasional text updates about what’s going on in the WoodmontYG. This could especially come in handy as we enter the summer!

To sign up, all you have to do is text EZSQT72950 to 313131.

(That means enter 313131 as the phone number and EZSQT72950 as the body of the text message)

Though this will not be the primary mode of communication we use, it will be helpful with last-minute updates and reminders.

We hope this makes your life easier!
