Calling all 3rd thru 6th graders! Come to Lutherock for a fun weekend!!

What is (BYG) Building Youth Groups? BYG is a retreat designed to build and strengthen the relationships in your youth group. The idea is to keep your youth group strong and growing by laying a foundation for its future members! We want to help your youth build relationships, trust, and friendships with one another in the church. This retreat has a focus on a community-based Bible study, team-building activities, and all the fun of camp. Caring, well-trained, college-aged counselors help guide the experience. Each group must come with at least one adult who will participate in the weekend. Adult leaders will be given some time in the weekend to form bonds within the congregational group.

Youth Participants: $142.00 per person
Adult Participants: 2 adults $71.00 each (Additional adults will be charged regular retreat center prices)
Bring a group of 7 or more Youth and get 1 free adult registration

Often when children are old enough to attend a traditional youth group, they have already committed to other activities . . . leaving your church with only one half, one third, or even one quarter of the church's children attending regularly.

BYG

Agapé † Kure Beach Ministries' goal is to keep your youth group strong and growing by laying a foundation for its future members - the 3rd thru 5th graders at your church!

Bring your elementary age kids to Camp Agapé for BYG, a fun community building camp experience. Because most BYG weekends are made up of groups from several churches, your group will have fun interacting with others during different camp activities like, canoeing, crafts, hiking, etc. While you are here, you and your campers will have:

  • Caring college age counselors who will work with group
    leaders and campers to facilitate relationship building
    experiences.

  • Time set aside for group leaders to be with their individual
    groups to plan, reflect, or simply be together.

  • A flexible schedule that allows us to modify activities as
    needed.
