Hsm fall retreat

High School Fall Retreat 2018

October 10th - October 13th, 2018

$0 - $150

The HSM Fall Retreat will include corporate worship services, small group discussions, private reflection times, team-building games, powerful times of prayer, and this year... THE BEACH! We will also have tons of other activities planned for the weekend.

HSM Fall Retreat is open to all high school students and their friends (9th-12th grades only).

HSM Fall Retreat will begin on Wednesday, Oct. 10 and end on Saturday, Oct. 13. THAT'S FALL BREAK! We will meet at Park West Church that Wednesday evening for our regular HSM Worship, stay overnight, and depart early in the morning (4am) and plan to arrive back at the church the following Saturday night.


HSM Fall Retreat will take place at THE BEACH!! To be exact, at Laguna Beach Christian Retreat Center in Laguna Beach, FL. It is approximately a 8 hour drive from Knoxville.

HSM Fall Retreat costs a total of $150 per student. The only additional money students will need is for two meals on the way there and two meals on the way back. A non-refundable deposit of $50 is due by Wednesday, August 15th to secure a spot. The remaining balance is due by Wednesday, October 3rd. Of course, you may pay the whole amount up front. AFTER AUGUST 15TH, THE TOTAL COST GOES UP TO $180.

The first 45 students to register will get to ride in a charter bus! After these 45 spots are filled, transportation will still be provided, but it may not be in a charter bus.

A $20 discount is available for students who have siblings attending. We want to make it easier for families with multiple high schoolers in the home. Use the "Siblings" registration type to receive your discount.

*Multiple discounts do not apply.
