Oakwood is a retreat at Blue Lake that multiple churches take part in every summer! Upon arrival students are put on one of six teams that will compete the duration of camp in various ways to come out the Champion! There will be morning and night sessions everyday that have games, worship, and a message from our speaker! In between we will have team games, basketball, and plenty of other awesome things to do at camp!


This event is a four day event with the Harbor downtown! We will be learning what it looks like to Engage with our community and with God! There will be daily community outreach events and teachings led by Kody Kirchhoff (the director of The Harbor). We will have worship and plenty of games as well! This will be an excellent time to learn how best to serve our community and share with them Christ!
