Fall Retreat

the best weekend of your life

Each fall theSWITCH heads south to Ottawa for a weekend away from the cares of this world. Wow, wouldn’t that be nice? We do get away–but what we get away from is our routine, our distractions, our schedules and our devices. It is a change of pace that allows us to focus better on God. We literally retreat in order to see God in a new way, from a different perspective.

What do we do while on retreat? We play games, we build and strengthen relationships, we learn about Christ, we eat, we try to get some sleep…it’s pretty much the best weekend the students will have all year!
