Ethos Students Spring Retreats 2021

Posted by Josh Willis on

All 5th - 12th grade students are invited to join us for our separate guys and girls retreats happening the weekend of April 9-11. On all Ethos Students retreats, we create space to play, grow, connect, rest, and worship together. It is worthwhile to retreat from our normal rhythms and spend quality time with our Ethos Students family. In the Spring we normally have Disciple Now but we are changing it up this year with separate retreats. The guys will be tent camping at Henry Horton State Park and the girls will be in cabins at Rural Hill Farm. All of the information you need to sign up is below, please reach out us at  if you have questions after reading the details here. If you are a high school or middle school student who wants to have fun, belong in a community, and encounter God then these retreats are for you. We hope you will join us and invite your friends!

Both retreats will be following our ethos students health guidelines during the pandemic:

Adult Volunteers: All adults interested in volunteering at the retreat must fill out this volunteer application and Josh Willis will be in contact with you. 

Want To Give a Scholarship?

We aim to never allow finances to be the barrier for a student's participation in a retreat or camp. One of the ways we can ensure for that to happen is through our scholarship fund. If you would like to pay someone's way to participate or make a general contribution that will only be used for scholarships, follow this link and select "Scholarship for a Student" under event payments and then enter the amount for: Scholarship & Payment Form
