Every year we take a group of students to Blackrock Retreat in Lancaster, PA. The goal of the Retreat is to give the students an opportunity to experiences life together outside the school walls. The students are given opportunities to hike, hold animals, catch creatures in the streams, and camp together for two nights. Games are set up for the students such as glow-in-the-dark dodgeball, lazer tag, and basketball. As a school, we were excited to take our largest group yet, just shy of 100 students. We are grateful for the positive cabin discussions that were had after chapels, the smiles and laughter that carried throughout the 3 days, and the friendships strengthened.
