At Gretna Glen we are committed to supporting the ministry that is already active in your church. We are inviting you and your Middle & High School youth to Gretna Glen the third Sunday of the month throughout the school year for a fun evening of activities, faith building and snacks! These events are free.
We will usually start the evening off with an open activity time. If the weather is nice, we'll open up some of camp's general activities for the students to have fun with. (this sometimes includes: archery, boating, fishing, Ga-Ga Ball, 9-Square, basketball, sports in the field) After that, we'll gather the group together for welcomes and a large group game. We'll end the evening with some worship and a message from our speaker or specialty presentation.
