About The Event
Bowmanville Archers Pathfinder Retreat Overview
What is the purpose of the retreat?
The theme of our pathfinder retreat is: CONNECT
Our mission is to bring our youth to Camp Frenda to begin to strengthen and empower the youth on their journey with God. It’s an opportunity to grow closer & conncect with their peers in a way that doesn’t happen in the familiar surroundings of the church or everyday life. We want them to leave with a blueprint to help jump start their spiritual journey.
The retreat weekend will focus on a simple three-fold program that will help empower the following areas: commitment, faithfulness, trust. We will dive deep and explore how we can stay connected to God by applying these 3 areas in our lives.
Commitment: learn to guard what has been committed to us by God. Examining our relationship with God to understand how we belong to His family.
Faithfulness: learn to have a strong desire to be faithful to God’s house and to His work. Discovering who we are as God’s workers.
Trust: learn to trust God with our future. Discovering our purpose to understand the promised future that has been set up for us.
Who will attend this retreat?
We are inviting Pathfinders and friends from ages 10 to 15 years old. Families are welcomed to attend the retreat as well.
