SKIING & SNOWBOARDING Option:

Spending Sunday skiing or snowboarding at Ski Brule is a program option for this retreat for an additional fee. CPBC gets discounted group rates for lift tickets and ski/snowboard rental. See this year’s ski rates above. Helmets are required by One Life policy and come with rental equipment. A rental/release ski form will be sent out prior to the retreat weekend and must be filled out by a parent or guardian. If any of your students plan to go to the ski hill, a chaperone must accompany them and provide transportation and supervision while at the hill. If some students remain at CPBC they also require supervision for an adult leader.

Ski/Snowboard Rental Form and Waiver – All skiers and snowboarders should fill out the form prior to coming. We’ll collect them on Saturday morning and the Ski Brule option will take place on Sunday. 

Ski forms and payment are due to CPBC (from youth leaders) during Saturday morning of the retreat.

OTHER DETAILS:

Housing:  Churches will be housed based on availability. Cabin bunk rooms will not be shared between churches. Although there are several housing units that have shared bathrooms between bunk rooms, Covenant Point will make every effort to keep bathrooms private by church group as well.

One adult (18+) leader of each gender is the minimum requirement for groups smaller than 8 of each gender.
