Save-the-Date for Kirkwood’s 2nd Annual Middle School Retreat
November 2 @ 6:00 PM – November 4 @ 5:00 PM

This retreat will be a blast! Come join us on the first weekend in November for our second Annual Middle School Retreat for 6th-8th grade youth! Expect to have an action-packed weekend of fun. The “Zipline Pumpkin Smash” is back! Look, we know those pumpkins that you worked so hard to carve for Halloween sit on your porch an extra week or two–bring them here (or we will have extras) and take them with you down the zip line. We will have targets to hit–and prizes for winners! It will be a one-of-a-kind weekend for Kirkwood that you won’t want to miss!

Cost: $75/youth, $60/adult leaders. What you get: 2 nights at Kirkwood, delicious meals, new friends, fun games, engaging discussions, new perspectives on scripture and yourself, the opportunity to win prizes by throwing a pumpkin while also zip-lining, and a unique, memorable weekend at Kirkwood.
We encourage youth groups to come as a group, and we especially encourage leaders/advisers to attend as well (PA clearances required :))! It will be great to have you with us!
Registration Deadline is October 15th, 2018! Deposit of $25 due with the registration form. If you have any questions please contact us: 570-421-8625 or [email protected]
