Affirm Retreat

affirmretreatMany of the middle school students at St. Andrew headed to New Hampshire for the weekend to be in the midst of God’s creation at Camp Calumet. We looked for examples of God still creating today and tried to find the oldest part of creation while hiking Jackman’s Ridge. We canoed and fell in awe of a single tree filled with red leaves in the midst of evergreens. We hoisted one another over walls and trusted as we fell into each other’s arms. We laughed as we heard the story of the Ossipee Lake monster and many of us drank far too much Ossipee Lake monster juice.
