Summer Staff Commissioning Chicken BBQ

Summer Camp 2018 is right around the corner and as a partner with this ministry, you and your family are invited to a special gathering where you can meet this year’s Summer Camp Staff.

June 10th is a special day here at Black Rock Retreat.  On that day the Summer Camp Staff will have completed two weeks of intensive training.  The next day, begins with the first week of summer camp.  To celebrate this day of transition, Black Rock Retreat is hosting our annual Chicken BBQ and Commissioning Service where you can meet these young people and participate in a special prayer of dedication for them and all the children who will participate in camp this summer.  In addition to meeting the 2018 Summer Staff, you might also meet some former Summer Staff and hear a story or two about the impact that Black Rock Retreat has made in their lives.  If interested, you can also arrive earlier in the afternoon and participate in self-guided activities.  Below is a schedule of events:

Sunday, June 10

2-4pm Self-Guided Activities

  • Visit the Nature Center and see live animals
