First-Time Retreat Scholarship
We want to give students (who have never attended a retreat) the opportunity to attend. Our hope is that after having a great experience, this student will fundraise for future retreats. The Keith Waterman Scholarship Fund exists to give an opportunity to 7-12th grade students who have never attended a Youth Group retreat. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to Youth Staff if you are interested.
We provide fundraising opportunities that have proven to be the most effective.
- Students will only receive money in their Student Account for the fundraising activities in which they participate.
- It is a student’s decision which and how many fundraisers they do.
- Please understand that our Youth Staff and Adult Youth Leader’s primary role is spiritual care and leadership. Therefore, we encourage parental support.
