Woodmont Hills Family Retreat

Family Retreat 2015 Picture Info Graphic

A while back we had a crazy idea for a retreat in the summer for the whole family. Something relaxing but fun, and something that depend connections both within and between families. We sent out a survey to see if that was something you would be interested in this summer and you responded with a resounding, “Yes.” Now we’re going through with it; July 4-6 at Camp Hy-Lake near McMinville Tennessee. We need you to fill out this short application (one per family) to reserve you family’s spot at Camp Hy-Lake and sign up for a volunteer role for the weekend.

Here are the activities that have been planned by your interns for this potentially rainy week!

Camp Dress up Nights

Some WoodmontYGers are trying to make Camp Telos more awesome so they had the idea to have dress up nights. I said, “sounds even more awesome!” So, this week, if you have time (this is not mandatory), go find some whacky get-ups and bring them to camp. You’ll have a chance each evening before dinner time to change and we may even do prizes for the person with the most creative outfit. As always, Modest is Hottest!

Here are the themes;

Malibu Monday: Wear your Hawaiian shirts or look like you’re part of a surfing safari or live on the bottom of the ocean. Like this guy…elvis-hawaiian-shirt

Hollywood Tuesday: Dress as a celebrity, a Hollywood insider or a tourist. Like these folks pleasant looking folks… tourists

Highlighter Hump Day: Look like a neon marker, your going to a Christian rave, or the most bodacious 80’s house party you’ve eve seen. This little girl gets it…  


Also, for one of our Big Fun Group Games, you’ll have more fun if you pack an outfit that’s mostly white and you don’t mind getting it dirty.

Jurassic World!

Don’t forget we are going to see Jurassic World today! Our move starts at 3:55 so please arrive at 3:30 so everyone can get tickets and we can find seats together. See you then!

Camp Telos 2015

Chasing Light 2
As the best week of your life (aka Camp Telos) draws closer, we thought we’d share a couple of reminders/clarifications with you to help make the process of getting you there a little bit easier:

– Today, May 31st was the last day to turn in applications and be guaranteed a spot at camp. There is a good chance space will be limited this year, so it’s super important that you try and get your application turned in ASAP! From now on, applications will be taken in a first come, first serve manor and when the all the spots are taken, we will have to start turning folks away. The link for the Camp Telos application can be found here: https://woodmontyg.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/camp-application-2015.pdf

– There have been several questions regarding transportation to camp, as there is some conflicting information in the camp application. But just so we are all on the same page: transportation to camp will not be provided this year. But don’t panic! If you are struggling to find a way there, let David or Jesse know and they will try and hook you up with a ride.

We could not be more PUMPED to spend an amazing week at camp with all of you! Prepare yourselves for the most amazing experience ever. Like, think Disney World times infinity.

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns! Camp will be here before we know it!

Workcamp Afternoons at the Fridges’


Many have asked if there was any options during afternoons this week for Workcampers. Due to the hospitality of the Fridges, there is!

If your family is unable to pick up your teen during the afternoon break of Workcamp (between 3 and 5:30pm), they can ride with the interns to spend the afternoon at the Fridge house. 

They will need to bring a change of clothes, any toiletries for a shower, a towel, and bathing suit if they plan to swim. 

Students who will be picked up during the break need to be picked up by 3pm from Woodmont. 

Nightly pick-up for all students will be at 8pm outside Lipscomb Academy’s Acuff Chapel.
