Midwest Singles Retreat • June 1-2, 2018
We hope you can join us for our 2018 Midwest Singles Retreat! Offering fervent and Christ-centered teaching from God's Word, your choice of action or relaxation, refreshing fellowship with like-minded young adults, and great food, this retreat will re-energize you in your weariness, refocus you on your mission, and re-establish you in Christ.
Dates: June 1-2, 2018
Sponsors: Cabin housing is available on a limited, first-come first-served basis for sponsors. The total cost of the retreat if renting one of these cabins is $100/person (linens/towels not included). You may request one of these 1-bedroom cabins on the registration form. If you chose to use the dorm housing (men with men, ladies with ladies), please note that on the registration form, as well.
Dress: Feel free to dress casually throughout the weekend. We only ask that you dress modestly, so as not to distract from the benefit of the conference. We also ask that you wear a dark shirt and appropriate shorts for the water activities. Ladies, please wear knee-length, loose-fitting garments with appropriate necklines.
What to bring: Plan to bring your Bible, notepad and pen, bedding, pillow, towels, beach towel, toiletries, camera, casual clothes, and shoes for informal services and recreation. You may also want to bring your own board games and some extra cash for concessions and some of the activities.
Meals: All meals are buffet-style and are included in the price of the conference. Unfortunately, the facilities will not be able to accommodate those with special nutrition needs (e.g., gluten free, peanut allergy, etc.).
Questions: If you have additional questions, please contact Ben Hicks at 317-292-4531 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please DO NOT contact AI Campus Retreat Center.
