What does it cost?
The cost for MSYC Fall Retreat is $75. This includes cabin lodging, meals, a long-sleeve MSYC shirt and priceless memories.
I’m in a grade other than 9th-12th. Can you make an exception for me?
Dearest friend, we really wish we could. However, space is very limited and
we’ve designed this weekend experience especially for students in high school.
When can I get there?
You can check in Friday between 4:00 - 6:00 pm.
What if I can’t be there until late on Friday?
Please let us know if you are going to need special accommodations for your
arrival time. The MSYC gate will close on Friday once everyone dismisses to their cabins.
It might be best for you to plan your check-in time with us if you will be arriving
later than 9:30pm on Friday.
What should I pack?
You’ll need a Bible, warm bed sheets, blanket, (or sleeping bag) pillow, towels,
toilet articles, flashlight. Depending on the weather, you may even need a jacket. Flip-flops are helpful for use in the shower.
We’re also encouraging everyone who attends to bring a pair of new socks and
toiletries for men and women who are homeless. These will be distributed in
and around Jackson, TN as we take part in celebrating SOCKTOBER. This is an
annual drive to help homeless shelters across the country stock up as they
prepare for winter!
What should I not pack?
Please do not bring cell phones, walkie talkies, guns, knives, fireworks, tobacco or electronic devices of any kind. Any of these items will be confiscated.
Will the canteen be open and can I get a break-pop?
Yes, the canteen will be open. And, in honor of fall, we will add coffee and hot chocolate to the menu....but, absolutely NO slushies!! Of course there will be break-pops just because we know you love them no matter what the weather is.
What about youth ministers and volunteers?
Due to limited space, youth ministers and non-counselor volunteers are being
encouraged to stay off-site. If you’d like to attend, help out or plan to eat any
meals with us please email: email@example.com.
