What might it look like?

Youth Group

A youth missions trip serves with local ministries a few days but reserves three days and two nights for a Forge experience. They learn to build fire and shelters, challenge each other during the night watches to an ongoing Capture the Flag game, and connect with God after building an offering and reflecting on the meaning of sacrifice.

First responders

A group of adults wants to be more prepared for emergencies, so they spend four days and three nights in intensive First Aid and rescue simulations in which they must find and retrieve an injured person with limited supplies. They reflect on Jesus’s declaration that He came to seek and save. How can we become physical rescuers that point others to the Savior of our souls?


A church wants to offer a father/son retreat to its members, so they reserve a long weekend where the duos face off against each other in archery competitions and escape rooms, each night leaning into devotions about the image of God and our place as His sons around the fire.
