Impact Weekend 2018

February 16-18

What is Impact Weekend?

Impact Weekend is a weekend geared toward reaching students on a whole new level. Students are divided into groups of 6-8 (same gender/age), paired with small group leaders and placed in a host home provided by members of Ocean View.

(So it’s sort of like an in-town retreat.)

Host homes and leaders will be published at a later date, since this largely depends on sign-up response and geographics. However, we promise to place students where they prefer to be and with people they prefer to be with, so sign up now and we will get you placed accordingly, meeting preferences and desires.

As the name implies, Impact Weekend will focus a tremendous amount of energy on making an impact in the next generation. Truth will be taught, worship will be experienced, and students will have multiple chances every day to openly talk about life with each other.

And we have added bonuses – tons of food, crazy games, lots of laughter, great competition, and lots of excitement as we rival each other out at Shark Wake Park, Go Ape Treetop Adventure, Riddles Escape Room, bubble soccer, combat archery tag, double dog dares, and more.
