Special Events

Our Youth Group has many special events during the year that combine growth and service with fun and fellowship.

  • Camp

Worship in God’s amazing outdoor sanctuary.  The Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church has three beautiful camps – Lake Poinsett near Watertown, South Dakota, Storm Mountain just outside of Rapid City, South Dakota and Wesley Acres north of Valley City, North Dakota.  Choose from a variety of different camp experiences.  Camp scholarships are available

  • Labor Day Retreat

Raise the white flag and retreat from the stress of life.  Our youth group takes time away to worship, rest, relax, play, enjoy yummy snacks and grow closer as the Body of Christ.
