Ski Lake Junaluska Youth Retreat
January 20, 2017 - January 22, 2017$195
Ski Lake Junaluska welcomes youth groups for unforgettable winter youth retreats in the mountains of North Carolina. The programs include worship, music, a mission component and skiing.
This year’s theme is Do Something, which was inspired by Matthew 25:45: “Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.”
The theme asks youth to step outside of their comfort zones to build the heart of service that Jesus so perfectly embodied. Speakers and bands will encourage youth to get out and make a difference in their communities.
The Do Something theme will be used as a common thread throughout the seven program weekends and each speaker, worship band, or entertainer will bring their own interpretation to the verse. The leadership for the 2017 season includes Andy Lambert, Duffy Robbins, Jimmy Atkins, Abbye West Pates, Cintia and Zeke Listenbee, comedian David Ferrell, and Christian pop group, 1GN.
Ski Lake Junaluska runs from December through March and strives to customize the experience to fit the needs of each group. There are several program weekends with bundled worship programming and ski, groups are also welcome to attend the program without skiing. Groups ski at Cataloochee or Wolf Ridge ski areas. Lake Junaluska also offers a mission component where youth get the opportunity to volunteer with local charities.
The Ski Lake Junaluska package includes lodging, meals, ski lift ticket, boots, skis, and worship programming. Pricing starts from $195 per person (2 nights/1 day ski).
Non-program ski packages are also available January-March, perfect for groups that want to plan their own events and take advantage of Lake Junaluska’s discounted lodging and ski packages.
