Theme: Salt & Light

Scripture: Matthew 5:13-16

“Salt of the earth?’ “Light of the world?” What did Jesus mean by assigning these descriptive metaphors to His disciples? And what should it look like for us living out these spiritual realities in an increasingly dark and morally decaying culture? Come discover for yourself and get a taste of Sankanac’s exciting and engaging Spring Thaw retreat!

DROP OFF: 6 pm on Friday evening. Please park in the main parking lot & check-in at the Scott Building across the street (white building with green trim) for your cabin assignments & instructions.

PICK UP: 8pm on Saturday evening. Please pick your camper up at their cabin. Our goal with this timeframe is to create an opportunity for our campers and our staff to return home to attend church on Sunday with their families.

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 issuing the medications.

Please be sure that you have noted all medications on your child’s “Retreat Health Form” online. 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 issuing the medications. Placing your dosage instructions on a 3×5 card and enclosing all medications and instructions in a ziplock bag is recommended.

We are experienced with accommodating most 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 Director of Food Services (Amanda at foodservice@campsankanac.org) no later than the Monday prior to the weekend to discuss the menu & substitutions. Thank you!
