About the WKND
The WKND is an annual high-energy event for middle school and high school students. The retreat takes place at the YMCA Collin County Adventure Camp in Anna, Texas starting on Friday evening and running through Saturday afternoon. The WKND is focused on helping students go deeper in their faith through relevant teaching, worship, and group discussions.
Students will have fun connecting with friends and taking advantage of the many activities and amenities offered at the campsite. Including: rock climbing, soccer, football, four square, gaga ball, color run, archery, and much more!
What is included with the cost of registration? The registration fee covers transportation, lodging, campsite activities, meals, snacks, and a shirt. Extra snacks, replacement water bottles, candy and gatorade can be purchased at an additional cost.
What if my student needs to leave? If your student has to leave at any time during the weekend, a time away card must be filled out and signed by a parent. The Time Away Card must explain why and when he/she will be leaving and returning. NO OTHER STUDENTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO RIDE WITH HIM/HER DURING THE WEEKEND.
Where and when do I drop my student off? Students should be dropped off at the One community Church Plano campus starting at 4:00p on Friday, March 13th. Students will then ride buses to the campsite. Parents can pick up students from the One Community Church Plano campus Sunday at 2:00p.
What if my student misses the bus to camp? If your student misses the bus or is unable to arrive at church prior to the bus departure, you can drop him/her off at the campsite and check them in at the infirmary.
Where will my student be staying? Students will stay in cabins during the weekend with students in the same grade and the same gender. All cabins are heated/air conditioned and are split into sides A & B. Each side sleeps up to 14 people (12 students & 2 leaders) and has its own bathroom with two sinks, two toilets and two showers. All small groups leaders accompanying students are trained and background checked.
Medical Releases – Does it really matter? Each student will need to bring a signed copy of the medical release or have a parent sign one during drop off. We want to take the best care of your student. If there were an emergency, the medical release form would allow us to provide the necessary care for your student. To best protect your student, a signed medical release form must be completed in order for them to attend.
What will students eat during the weekend? Students will be provided a hot meal for dinner friday, Breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday, and breakfast and lunch Sunday. Between meals and large group session, a light snack will be provided for each student. Students will also have the option to purchase additional snacks should they desire to.
Can my student bring food or snacks? To avoid attracting insects and small animals, we ask that students do NOT bring any food or drinks besides water into the cabins. Students will be given plenty of time to eat and snack in designated areas.
Can students request to be switched? We will work very hard to make sure students are in a group with people they know. Changes to small group assignments are handled on an individual and case by case basis.
