Preteen Fall Retreat

Glowing Fires & Glowing Hearts

A season of wonder and worship where immersive experiences invite preteen groups to explore their Christian faith!

November 15-17, 2024

preteen-retreat-half

Welcome to Michigan’s SpringHill Christian Camp, where there’s a new adventure around every corner!

At SpringHill, we understand that preteens do not always have the opportunity to grow their faith in a world that pushes God away.

To help you expand your reach and strengthen preteens in your church, we have created an engaging fall retreat specifically for 4th to 6th graders in November. Youth groups of 9-to-12-year-olds celebrate Jesus through energizing worship bands, a guest speaker, and a schedule packed with FUN!

A weekend when each child can step out of their comfort zone and step into a world where they are loved and valued. To look heavenward and invite Christ into their life. To hear God whisper, “You are enough as you are!”

Pre-teens leave our Christian retreat renewed and refreshed with an inner strength only God can provide.

Ministry events include large-group worship sessions with a live band and small-group discussions with youth leaders to help students apply the Biblical truths taught. Students also engage in fun activities like archery, paintball, and ziplines. When they come inside, they enjoy an indoor pool, ropes course, laser tag, arcade, and a gym with basketball, volleyball, gaga ball and more!

Our church retreats are done for you. We provide the band, guest speaker, lodging, meals, and all the activities, giving you and your youth leaders the time and space to connect with your preteens and discuss biblical truths that can transform their lives.

SH_PT24_Theme-980x613

Glow in the Dark!

This year, our theme focuses around Matthew 5:14-16 – “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Our hope is to encourage students to be confident in their faith and to understand the importance of living a life that reflects God’s love to others
