There are packages to fit every budget and interest – ski, snowboard, snow tube – Or do all three!

Youth leaders: Bring your teens and young adults for a casual weekend packed with fun in the snow and fellowship with friends old and new.  

Schedule Overview:
Friday night we'll get acquainted with games/activities and start the Sabbath with interactive worship. 
Sabbath we'll connect and worship then reach out to and serve the community.
Saturday night we'll ski, snowboard and/or tube at Cascade Mountain
Sunday morning we'll return and pack in a full day of fun on the slopes and in the lodge!

Lodging and all meals from Friday supper through Monday brunch are included in the prices listed in each package. If you can only join us for a portion of the weekend, a la carte pricing is available, but we recommend the entire weekend to experience the community created through the full weekend program.  We hope to see you there!!!
