**The registration is due by Friday, JANUARY 13!**
Our Senior High Youth is going on a Winter Retreat and attending Happening #175 in Camp Allen on January 27-29. Happening is a weekend renewal retreat for high school youth that is hosted through the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. Even though it is a predominantly Episcopalian event, they actively invite and welcome Youth from all denominations and often have other denominations join them for their retreats.
What is Happening?
Happening is described as a “once-in-a-lifetime experience,” and through the experience of the retreat students are encouraged to participate in one’s own church and Youth group. During these retreats faith is seriously examined in a relaxed, fun, informal, and loving atmosphere.
Things to Know:
- Happening takes place four times a year at Camp Allen – Campsite 3.Camp Allen is in Navasota, Texas, just over three hours away.
- The weekend begins on Friday evening at 7pm and is over Sunday evening after closing Eucharist. All Happeners must stay the entire weekend.
- We are attending Happening, not the Happening Lock In.
- Any student in 9th– 12th grade (as of November) may attend Happening. Adults who are involved in youth ministry are also encouraged to attend.
- Registration costs will be covered by Travis Park Church, but we are asking for a $10 deposit for each student to show a commitment to attending the retreat. Meals and lodging are included.
- The registration date for the retreat has changed from previous correspondence!
