There are a few weekend retreats that  the kids have a chance to go to throughout the year. The goal of these events is to bring each student closer to God as an individual and as they grow closer to God to grow closer as a group. I think that these trips can be great for providing a spark that starts new relationships both with God and with others, or fanning the flame of relationships that are already in place. We have a monthly get-together we area youth groups called "Connect" and a big youth reatreat in the Spring with the area youth groups at Camp Hensel, just down the road from Marble Falls.
