This Sunday will be our bowling outing for the middle and senior high youth group.  We will meet at the church at 4:30 pm and plan to be at the Brunswick Zone in Deerfield at 5 pm and return at around 6:30 pm.  We will bowl and eat dinner and have a great time out!  The cost for bowling is $10 per person.  If you haven't already, please let me know if you are planning on attending so we can prepare for drivers.

Keep in mind the Pancake Brunch is coming up on Feb. 7 and the following week (Feb. 14) we will be going to Christ Church for the Community Meals which begins at 12 pm.

What are Adventure Trips?

Our Adventure Trips go through Christian Adventures and they are designed for our Sr. High Youth Group to grow together as a team and individually through a faith based adventure experience.  The adventures we participate in are both fun and challenging, with the purposes of our group working together as we experience the wonders of God's beautiful world.   

What is St. Gregory's Adventure Trip for 2016?


Our headquarters will be the Christian Adventures base camp located in Rodney Michigan, which is right next to the Manistee National Forest.  We will have several different opportunities for fun group experiences, but our main adventures will consist of: 

Kayaking/canoeing, biking, horse-back riding, rock climbing and teams courses, hiking, and a day trip into the harbor town of Ludington, which oversees Lake Michigan.  

We will also have many opportunities for site-seeing and group recreation.

As in all our Adventure Trips, we will be sleeping in tents, which is part of the adventure experience.  The Christian Adventures Headquarters is equipped with amenities such as restroom facilities and showers, and many recreational options such as swimming and a game room.  Meals will be provided for us throughout the week.  

Cost:

 T
he cost per student is $200, and the Youth Commission will pay the rest.

Who Can Come?  

All current High School students and entering High School students are invited.  If you are receiving this email and you are in High School or will be next year, you are invited.


Need To Know Date:

 

Please let me know if you will be attending by Feb. 28.  There is much planning involved in these trips, so the sooner I know the better.  


When is the Trip?  

August 7-12.  We will leave St. Gregory's on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 7 and return to St. Gregory's Friday afternoon, Aug. 12
