Rest and Vision is a weekend winter retreat opportunity for youth and college students from across the southeast. A collaborative effort from the Community Church without Walls, SumAlum, and the Nina Reeves Endowment Fund, the weekend will provide time to grow closer to God and to each other on the holy ground of Camp Sumatanga.
Programming is all provided so youth leaders will have time to recharge and connect with their students.
What age groups is Rest and Vision for? Rest and Vision is designed for 6th - 12th graders and college students. Small groups are divided according to grade level.
Will Lunch be provided on Saturday and Monday? No. You will be on your own for lunch on Saturday and Monday.
What is your event cancellation policy? All deposits made are NON-REFUNDABLE. ALL PAYMENTS ARE DUE by January 2, 2022. Cancellations will be addressed on a case by case basis depending on timing and our ability to fill your spots.
What are the group sessions like? The main sessions are modern worship services with a mix of music, speakers, and fun activities. The small group sessions are age level assigned groups with a R&V leader. Youth group sessions are for your youth group – some materials and a suggested curriculum will be provided.
How many adults should I bring? We suggest a minimum of 1:10 ratio of adults : students for each gender. College groups do not require chaperones.
What is included in the cost of registration? The registration price includes the cost of the event, housing, meals, and a t-shirt for each participant.
What about food allergies? Camp Sumatanga can accommodate requests for food allergies if they are communicated at least 1 week prior to the event.
What are youth leaders responsible for? You are responsible for YOU! You will NOT be leading small groups, planning the schedule, or coming up with devotionals. ONLY chaperoning your group. We provide small group leaders and talking points, questions, and supplies for you to use during youth group time each night.
