Join us for a weekend of exciting teaching, relevant messages and powerful music in an inviting community. These are mixed MidWinters — both junior high and senior high are invited.

Check-in is from 8:00 p.m.-8:45 p.m. on Friday night. We conclude by 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.

You must bring 1 adult for every 1-7 youth. Please note gender ratios of youth to adults (i.e. bringing 7 girls and 1 male adult makes cabin assignments difficult).

ALL Adults must register, pay, submit MinistrySafe certificate, clear background check and sign a medical release. MinistrySafe certificates must be dated within 2 years of the last day of the event you are registering for. Background checks and medical release forms must be dated within ONE year of the last day of the event.

Release Forms

Please submit a signed Medical Release Form for each person registered for MidWinter 1 and 2.

Confirmation Connection is a new retreat style confirmation program in the North Texas Conference that partners with local UMC Churches to provide a connectional confirmation experience. The Curriculum for the weekend is developed from the Credo Curriculum and will fit well with what UMC Churches are already doing with their Confirmation classes.

For more information, please contact: Joseph Bradley at

The Weekend Curriculum includes worship, meditation and 4 Small Group Sessions that focus on Discipleship, The Wesleyan Quadrilateral, Living a Holy Life, and Grace. The curriculum is rooted with Wesleyan Theology and should fit well with other confirmation curriculums.

After registering, you will be invited to join in a conversation about these topics, what will be discussed, and next steps after the Confirmation Camp to keep the discussion going.
