Resurrection is Holston Conference’s annual retreat held in Gatlinburg, TN at the convention center. Church Street attends January 13-15. All youth, grades 6-12, are invited and welcomed to join us. We leave, on a school bus, Friday afternoon at 5:30 PM and return on Sunday at approximately 3 PM. The cost for the retreat is $100 and covers transportation, lodging, and event registration fees. Students will also need money for six meals (most fast food) and whatever spending money they would like for event T-shirts, CD’s, etc. We also ask that they bring a few extra dollars for a Youth Service Fund offering.
We stay at the Sydney James Mountain Lodge on Airport Road. Students room with their friends in age appropriate groupings. Event chaperones are situated throughout our block of rooms so that all students are safe and cared for. There is a block of free time on Saturday afternoon. Middle schoolers are not allowed to roam Gatlinburg without a chaperone at any time. High schoolers are given a bit more freedom as appropriate.
Packing list: Bible, comfortable warm clothes, comfortable shoes, toiletries, money for six meals, souvenirs, and YSF offering. You do not need to bring bedding or towels.
