Sr. Boys’ Retreat: January 5-7, 2018

2018: Spiritual focus on Matthew 19:26, an Impossible Mission (w/out God)

From 2017: Two Ways to Live: You have a choice, whether to come and play Black Light Dodgeball or to sit at home twiddling your two thumbs.  You have a choice, whether to play Sankanac’s favorite football game in the mud and/or snow or to sit at home eating leftover brussel sprouts with your pet gerbil, Eugene.  You have a choice, to reunite with summer camp friends and counselors or to sit alone with your overdue library book.  You have a choice, whether to be challenged and encouraged by the Word which brings Life or to…you fill in the blank.  We hope you choose wisely.

Sr. Girls’ Retreat: January 12-14, 2018

2018: Spiritual focus on Matthew 19:26, an Impossible Mission (w/out God)

From 2017: Join your friends and counselors as we trek the world’s highest mountain; Everest. Walk in the footsteps of those who have dared to climb the summit before. Brave the elements, face your fears and race to put the flag at the top first. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to reach new heights! Don’t miss out! Reconnect with camp for the weekend and enjoy a great time of fun and fellowship. Tackle the Everest in your life and watch God move mountains.

Retreats are a super fun and friendly way for a new friend to experience the awesome activities and the beauty of Sankanac, so spread the word!


COST/POLICIES: $75 per person-includes snacks, 5 meals, two night stay & all programming. Registration requires payment in full. Cancellations later than 3 days in advance will result in loss of the $75.

PICK UP: 2pm on Sunday afternoon. Please pick your camper up at their cabin.

CABINMATES/AGES: This retreat is for all kids, ages 11-16. If you were a Creekside camper last year but have turned 11yo, we welcome you to attend this retreat. We encourage campers to invite a new friend as this weekend is a small taste of summer camp & is the perfect way for a new camper to see camp in a super friendly environment. You are welcome to request one mutual cabin mate for this retreat & you will have the opportunity to do so during the online registration process.

SPECIAL DIETS: We are experienced with accommodating special dietary needs. But we need your help with making us aware of dietary restrictions & needs in advance so we can make sure your child’s mealtime experience here is great. Please fill in as much detail as possible in the special diet section of the retreat health form (part of the online registration already) & contact our cook (Erin at no later than the Monday prior to the weekend to discuss the menu & substitutions. Thank you!

MEDICATIONS: Please bring any medications your child may need in their original as prescribed containers. During drop off on Friday evening you will have the opportunity to discuss dosage & instructions with our staff who will be administering the medications.




-Pillow/Sleeping Bag (Campers will stay in our winterized Cliffside cabins…they are toasty warm and have bathrooms)

-Weather Appropriate Clothing: It’s winter! We can get anything from balmy sunshine to snow…please pack according to weather conditions. We’ll most likely be enjoying the outdoors regardless! Boots, jacket/coat/hat/gloves, snow gear/sled if snow is forecast, rain coat/boots if rain is forecast, etc. Extra clothes are recommended in case we get messy.

-Shoes: We recommend packing solid sneakers or hiking boots (and an extra pair is a great idea!). If rain is forecast, throw in a pair of rain boots if you have them.



-Spending Money: This year there will be a small “snack shop” available for the kids to purchase candy & snacks from during free time (all items $1.50 and under). We also have soda machines available if they are interested in purchasing sodas or Powerade.


We are praying that this weekend will be a refreshing & fun experience that will equip your child to take on the busy winter season & the rest of the school year! We hope they will come out & join us as we dig into God’s Word & focus on Him, all while having an absolute BLAST with some whacky activities around camp!

If you have any questions, please email us at or call the office on 610-469-6320.

We’ll see you there!!
