It's like summer camp, but a whole lot cooler!

Freeze Out is designed to be your churches retreat within a retreat. Bring your whole youth group and use this time to connect with your friends. We will plan activities that you can do with your friends but don’t expect to be lost in a crowd. This is your retreat, and we want you to feel like you had the time to really enjoy your friends even though there were lots of other people around.

Students $149 • Leaders $115 Registration the week of the retreat: $155

We all need events in our life that keep us connected with God and our close friends, and this what freeze out is all about!

The theme this year "Peace with God". Freeze Out is the perfect opportunity for a re-set in the middle of the busy school year. While here you can look forward to great activities inside the ARC and outside in Lake Ann's incredible winter wonderland. It is not unusual for Lake Ann to have up to 200" of snow each winter and that makes for great snow tubing, snow shoeing or cross country skiing. Or, just warming up by the many indoor and outdoor fireplaces throughout the camp.
