COVID 19 - Updates
We all recognize that navigating large gatherings in the ever changing world of COVID-19 is a challenge. As a community of believers, we believe that the proper response for an event such as this, is one that is rooted in hospitality, respect, honor and care and concern for others. We do desire to host an event where we can gather as community, but we also desire to do so safely and with a limited risk to each other.
We intend to honor and protect each other during the retreat with the following practices (subject to change as conditions and guidelines are updates - please check back regularly).
Ilana Ferguson, team leader from University of the Pacific, will be directing this track, welcoming students who are exploring faith and/or are new to campus fellowships and looking to deepen personal disciplines in being a Jesus follower. Ilana and her team are praying for you and that you would encounter Jesus in a new way this weekend.
Leah Stewart, team leader at California State University, Sacramento, is directing this track, encouraging current student leaders to press harder into the leadership journey that Jesus has called you to. During this weekend, we anticipate that Jesus will inspire new vision for you as a Small Group Leader, Exec Team Member, or other support leadership roles in your current chapter context.
Registration and Opening Session - Meet your new friends for the weekend in a time of worship and introduction. Following the opening worship time, each track will meet for an evening of digging into scripture and encountering Jesus together.
MMMMM. Breakfast. With 150 of your closest friends!
We will continue digging into scriptures and seeing how Jesus wants to encounter us in our Faith Journey.
Not only is this another opportunity to break bread with 150 of your newest closest faith journey companions, but Lunch will also offer the opportunity to join an 'interest table' and find out more about: Native Ministry in InterVarsity; Missions opportunities in InterVarsity (through IFES); Staff Opportunities after Graduation and other specific ministry interests.
Afternoon free time is a choose your own adventure! Explore recreation opportunities at the retreat center, have a meaningful conversation with a friend, take a nap, do homework (Yes... we know it'll be on your mind), or any number of other things.
Mix things up. Sit at a different table. Meet people from another campus. Sit in anticipation of an unexpected announcement.
Study in scriptures continue. The journey with Jesus continues. Prayer adventures abound.
Too dark for bird watching. Too warm for ice skating. But that doesn't mean there is nothing to do. There will be something fun.
6 students will join Dan (camp director), because everyone else wants to sleep in - but Dan, and other staff over 50, have been up for several hours and need coffee.
We prepare to take what we learned and experienced and head home with a new vision and excitement for what Jesus and the journey hold starting tonight, when we come off the mountain top

DOC (Disciples on Campus)
DOC is for students new to InterVarsity or faith in general. If this is your first InterVarsity retreat, this is the place for you! We'll be exploring what it means to live faith on campus (or even virtually) while in college.
This is a track for students that are in leadership at their campus/chapter. We will spend the weekend studying 2 Timothy and learning how to rekindle our love for mission on campus as we begin to return to some form campus life this year.
