Youth Group Winter Retreat

February 3 - February 5

camp barker

Camp Barakel Winter Retreat will be here before you know it (and the Michigan winter too, but we won’t linger on that). If your student has never gone before, it’s a blast…

What is Camp Barakel?

It’s our annual Winter Retreat in Fairview, MI. We take two busses and leave on a Friday evening at 4:30pm and return on a Sunday Afternoon around 3pm-ish. In between are all kinds of fun activities, Bible teachings, small groups, and bonding interactions. High school and middle school are at the same camp but split up in different locations and have different teachings. 

We do take your student’s phone and lock them up about halfway through the bus ride, and they get them back on the return bus ride. This helps give the students a break from screen time and an opportunity to be more intentional with the students around them. (Leaders have their phones and have a list of numbers in case of emergencies.)

Signing up

In order to reserve your student’s slot, you will need to both:

  1. Complete a registration/release form online (All registrations need to be completed by November 6th.)
  2. Submit a $50 deposit (pay online or submit a check made out to New Hope Church). The deposits are, unfortunately, nonrefundable (unless something changes with the trip or details). 


When: February 3 – 5, 2023
Where: Fairview, MI
Cost: $135 total registration fee ($50 deposit due with initial registration)
Important: First come, first serve on the spots, so get your deposits in as early as possible!

If finances are an issue, please let us know. Our heart is that no student will be left out who wants to go. This is an amazing opportunity, and God has used it well in the past to help students feel more connected to each other and Jesus.

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Youth Pastor, Kyle Denny.
