WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT:
The Great Escape is part of a nation-wide ministry called YCM – Youth Conference Ministry. They have been offering camps to students since the mid-80’s and have done so successfully throughout the US and internationally with various work site camps, etc. 

Each year they bring in new speakers, new worship teams / bands to bless the students and leaders for the week – it is an action packed week from dawn to dusk each day, but great stuff!

The Worship: There are two large group worship sets with a large “concert” type look to it on stage – it is usually loud which students like and engaging which students & leaders like as well.

The Play: Each late morning there are 3 different recreation fields which host a wide variety of games that pertain to the environment: Water Games by the lakefront, mud & messy games by Field X and large group team challenges and fun contests at Field Rec. The games are incredibly fun & it is fun to “compete”  with 100’s of other students & leaders. During free time, there are various tournaments:  basketball, volleyball, soccer, chess, mini-triathlon and much more!

The Rooms:  Students stay in nice hotel rooms at the conference center, which are located on the main campus. There are guys only floors and girls only floors. Our leadership team is strategically placed by the students' rooms. The facilities are very nice and the conference center staff is very kind to all of us.

The Food: We eat in the main banquet hall three times a day.  The food is very good and the environment is extremely nice with plenty of space and time to visit and rest for a bit.

WHY:
Students and leaders gather together on this week to grow in Christ personally and to grow in relationships with others within the LOFT and with people from other youth groups. Retreats are awesome opportunities to connect in a deeper way with the God who created you and seeks to live through you. Join us to make new memories together at Great Escape 2020!
