  • How do you ensure my student’s safety?

    We bring along trained medical and security teams to Fall Retreat. These teams are comprised of volunteers who are professionally trained to handle emergency situations. The medical team is well trained in emergency care and the security team is headed by LCBC’s Director of Security.

    Please note that we generally do not hold on to and cannot dispense the prescriptions that your student brings and would request that students be able to self-administer their medication as prescribed. We ask that they keep the medication with them and take it as prescribed. If you have concerns regarding your student’s medical or physical needs we would ask that you reach out to your location staff upon registration so that we can support your student to the best of our ability.

  • What does my student need to bring?
    • 3 sets of clothes (including an outfit that can get messy/ruined!)
    • Sleeping bag & pillow
    • Toiletries
    • Towel
    • Bible & pen
    • Flashlight (for real! the camp gets really dark!)
    • Spending money for the camp store & snack shop
  • Can my student bring their cell phone?

    We discourage students from bringing their cell phones to Fall Retreat as it is a great time to “unplug.” However, the final decision lies with the parent/guardian. If you believe that your student is capable of being responsible with their device, they may use it at appropriate times (for example: taking pictures, free time, Bible reading). We believe that it is important for students to learn how to appropriately engage with their devices, and our leaders aim to help guide our students to learn how to do so; however, if cell phones are used inappropriately, they may be confiscated. All confiscated devices will be returned at the end of the weekend.

  • How can I follow along throughout the weekend?

    You can follow along with us all throughout the weekend via social media.

  • What is included in my ticket cost?

    Your ticket includes 2 nights, 3 days, and 4 meals at beautiful Lake Champion camp in Glen Spey, New York. It also includes transportation, all activities, rocking gatherings, and fun surprises!

    A portion of our yearly HSM budget supports Fall Retreat, as ticket prices do not cover all expenses. If you would like to understand where our costs go please email

  • What if I need financial assistance?

    We have scholarships available for families who need additional assistance. You can click apply for our scholarship application below.
