About this retreat

What are you looking for in a winter camp for your High School students? Sound Biblical teaching? (Check.) Intensely creative games and group challenges? (Check.) A beautiful location, opportunities for deep discussions, authentic worship? (Check, check, check!) Oh yeah, and don’t forget the hot chocolate. (Check.)

High School Winter Camp at Forest Home is an experience designed to challenge, encourage, and engage students who are in 9th-12th grade. Each activity during the weekend is purposefully planned to get them out of their normal routines and challenge them into something more significant, more adventurous, and more intentional. Our staff strives to keep the teaching relevant and Biblical, and they each look for ways to encourage students to have deep discussions, prayer, and quiet times of reflection. We want to partner with you and your volunteers to nurture your students in their journeys with Christ.

We also think campers should have loads of FUN while encountering their Creator, so we offer tons of options for winter recreation and outrageous group games. Zip lining through the trees, careening down the tube run, playing games in a cozy lodge, climbing the Sky Trail (and more!) are sure to create memories that will outlast any SnapChat post.

Dates: February 21 - February 23, 2020

Speaker: Karl Romeus

Karl is the Student Ministry Director at Bayside Church in Granite Bay California. Bayside is a vibrant church with 7 campuses and 18,000 people in weekly attendance. He oversees the middle school, high school and college ministry across campuses. He has been in ministry for the past 15 years and has studied Christian Leadership and Biblical Theology at Grand Canyon University.
Karl is also a part of the leadership team for Thrive Unleashed, a youth conference for 3000 students, in Northern California. Though he is absolutely in love with Boston sports, his heart belongs to his wife Jen and daughters Georgia and Ruby.

Worship: Aubrey Dela Cruz

Aubrey currently serves as one of Biola University’s eight worship team leaders on campus. She is passionate about youth, and has formerly lead worship with Friends Church Yorba Linda in their junior high ministry. Forest Home is near and dear to her heart. You might recognize her from Creekside, where she served as the Junior High worship dean in summer of 2018, or from leading worship at winter camp in 2019! Aubrey loves integrating liturgical rhythms and prayer practices into her worship sets because she believes in using music ministry as a means to step into an honest conversation with God. One of her favorite pass times is making new friends over a cup of coffee. If you see her around, be sure to stop her to chat. She’ll probably grab an iced daily dose along the way!
