Who: Rising 8th-Graduated 12th Graders. 

When: June 26th-July 3rd, 2019

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 three meals on the road. A $75 deposit is due when you reserve your spot. Reserve your spot and pay your deposit by June 1st.

 

Arrival/Departure:  Youth should arrive at OUMC at 8:30 AM on Wednesday, June 26th. We will be leaving Jacksonville at 9:00 AM. We will return to Jacksonville on Wednesday, July 3rd at 5:00 PM.

When: July 8th-July 13th, 2019

Where: Warren Willis Camp, Fruitland Park, FL

What: The camp experience is like no other! Imagine a week on Lake Griffin surrounded by your friends from home and all around the state.

Cost: The cost is $420 including lodging, activities, transportation and meals while at camp. Students should bring additional money for one meal on the road.
