Fifth-Grade Retreat at Carolina Creek

Fifth graders had the opportunity to attend a Fifth-Grade Retreat at Carolina Creek Camp. The fifth-grade students who attended were able to spend three days and two nights working on team building, getting to know each other better and growing spiritually.

Students were broken into four small groups to enjoy Bible study and group activities. The theme for the retreat was Isaiah 43:1-4 and students learned that God has not forgotten them, God knows them by name and God restores them. Students enjoyed a keynote speaker and small group Bible discussions each day. Students also learned about the attributes of God while enjoying team-building activities like crate stacking, climbing the giant ladder, kayaking, cable park (knee-boarding), adventure park (ropes course), arrow tag, ziplining and target sporks (archery and tomahawks). On the last day, our teams got to practice working together to solve several puzzles and gather the tools they needed to rescue their group leader who was “kidnapped” and stranded in the middle of the lake. It was great to watch the students learn how to work together and encourage one another while completing different tasks. Overall, the students grew closer together as a group and closer to God.
