Grade Range: MidWinter Retreats is for 6th – 12th grades

Registration is open!

Virtual MidWinter
February 13-14, 2021

Youth in 6th-12th grade are invited to MidWinter 2021. This year’s theme is “I Am.” We’ll be exploring who we are to ourselves, to each other and to God.

Jan. 15 update: After looking at the 30-days-out COVID numbers in our area, we have decided to move Midwinter 2021 to a completely virtual event. Of course we are disappointed we will not be able to gather in person and introduce the NTC youth to Prothro Retreat Center, but the projection at this time is that an event with 50 people in attendance would mean a 75% chance one or more people would be COVID positive.

Our Virtual Midwinter will offer even more opportunities to hear from CCYM leaders about how their faith helps them define them. We’ll also have the chance to worship together, and, of course, play games and meet people from across the connection! Later this month, we’ll be highlighting our youth speakers and sharing more about the event.

Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest already, and for understanding this very difficult decision. Please email Emma Williams with any questions.

Camp Bible 2021

Dates: September 2021. Check back for specific dates.

Camp Bible is a Bible Retreat for children who will be in Grades 3-5 in the 2021-2022 school year.

You are going to be part of this very special weekend where our theme will be Be the Church. We will focus on the words Jesus gave us to live out his ministry as the body of Christ as we speak the love, grace, truth and compassion of God.

At Camp Bible, we recognize how important it is for us to use our Bibles since God continues to talk to us through words and stories. Not only will we share in the adventure of learning about our Bibles, we will share in camp life as well. Get ready to look at the stars, eat outside, play games, shoot arrows, dance, do crafts and so much more.


Confirmation Connection Retreat

January 2022

Our Confirmation Connection is a retreat-style Confirmation camp in the North Texas Conference that partners with local UMC Churches to provide a connectional confirmation experience.

Our retreat works well as a Confirmation kick-off event, mid-way point, or closing retreat based on when your church begins and ends confirmation. It can also act as a confirmation program for churches that don’t currently have something to offer their students.

Our next Confirmation Connection is tentatively scheduled for January 2022, at Bridgeport Camp and Conference Center. Cost for the event is $100 per person prior to December 20, 2021, and $125 after that date. This includes both confirmands and adults. However, we do have a small amount of scholarship money available for churches that need help paying for their adults.
