Do you need another option to the whole weekend retreat?

  • Do you have youth that have never been to a District retreat and are hesitant?
  • Do you have 6th graders who have hung back from participating or 5th graders you want to introduce?
  • Are you a church without a youth group but you have a one or a few youth who want to try out a district event?
  • Are you saving for a mission trip and can’t afford the retreat too?
  • Are some of your youth too busy to give a whole weekend, but they still want to participate?

Then try our first “Big Day Out”!
