What is THAW?

THAW is a weekend retreat for middle and high school youth groups that challenges students and leaders to experience God’s truth through building relationships within their group, fun activities, and focused times in God’s Word.

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

Adventure Activities

Basketball, volleyball, foosball, gaga ball, & carpetball tourneys; zipline &/or snow tubing (weather permitting), youth group challenge/active session; night game; pizza party; snack shop; Rock Mountain LIVE!; general sessions; youth group time (small groups); worship; & more!

Group discussion times were great. I was surprised at how much some kids opened up about the things in their lives connected to the message from God’s Word.
The group projects were good, too. Fun to stand back for the most part and let the kids work together to rise to the challenge!
