Tell Me About ALiVE

ALiVE is our annual synod middle-school retreat, scheduled for September 24-26, 2021, at Camp Nawakwa. Congregations from across our synod gather with their adult advisors and youth for an early fall weekend that includes large group gatherings with singing led by our ALiVE Alumni Band, theme-centered videos and stories, and games, interspersed with small group gatherings, where youth gather with peers and a small group leader, to converse about the theme and it’s impact in their lives of faith. It’s a great event for your Confirmation students and classes.

The weekend also includes crafts, games, campfires, free-time, and community-building that allows youth and their adult counterparts time to deepen existing friendships, and create new ones. Congregational advisors can also count on the option of receiving some intentional continuing education. Plus, inspiring outdoor worship often highlights our last morning together at Nawakwa’s famous Upper Temple!

+ Considering contacting 5th grade youth and their families NOW.
+ Event cost fees for 2021: $132.00/person ($50 deposit due at time of registration)
