Are you ready for one of the greatest weekends of your year?? Here at KCC we are super excited for 2018's Winter Retreat and we hope you are too!
What is Winter Retreat?
Winter Retreat is a time when our students take themselves out of the norm of their every day life and retreat to the mountains to grow closer to God and each other. The weekend is filled with singing praises, morning and evening devotionals, intentional prayer time, delicious food, and crazy fun in the SNOW! Our hope is that at the end of the weekend our students return with a closer connection to their peers and a deeper relationship with God.
*Saturday is an optional ski/snowboard day at China Peak

We will be going to China Peak, which is about 30 minutes above Shaver Lake. If your student decides to ski you should know that we will not be able to provide direct supervision and they will be told to use the buddy system. We will transport the students, provide a sack lunch, and periodically check in at ski patrol to make sure no students have been injured. Each student will pay for their own lift ticket and rentals. Rentals will be from Shaver Lake Sports.
