Who: Rising 8th-Graduated 12th Graders. 

When: July 5-12, 2018

Where: Troutdale, Virginia

What: A summer hiking trip in the Appalachian Mountains with Wilderness Trail. No experience necessary! Our students spend time at the Wilderness Trail property in fellowship, worship & games before heading out on a 5-day backpacking journey on the Appalachian Trail. WT believes that amazing things happen when you take people out of their comfort zone and place them in the beauty of God's creation. We have seen that incredible growth begins with first letting go. As we let go of the worries and thoughts of our daily lives we are then able to begin looking outward. For more information, go to http://www.wtrail.com/.

 

Cost: The cost is $305 including almost everything you need, such as: backpacking equipment (tent, pack, etc.), meals at the property, meals and some snacks while hiking, and a souvenir T-shirt. Students should bring money for two meals on the road. A $75 deposit is due by 6/3.

 

Arrival/Departure:  Youth should arrive at OUMC at 8:30 AM on Thursday, July 5th. We will be leaving Jacksonville at 9:00 AM. We will return to Jacksonville on Thursday, July 12th at 5:00 PM.

Packing Party: Monday, July 2nd at 5:30 in the Youth Room.
