Children's Retreat to Westview On the James
Has your child ever wanted to try summer camp, but a week was too overwhelming, or maybe your child has never experienced a night away from home? Well, we have an exciting overnight opportunity for children ages K – 5th grade at Westview on the James (located in Goochland County) Friday, March 13 - Saturday, March 14. The cost of this event is $65.00 per child. This includes a meal on Friday evening, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, as well as all the activities your child would typically participate in during summer camp, such as crafts, archery, and a ropes course, all while including spiritual formation. Transportation to and from Westview will be provided by the church, and Dixie Chappell, our Coordinator of Family and Children’s Ministries will be attending this overnight experience. Deadline to register is March 1. 
To Register, please print off the following forms and return them and your $65 to Dixie Chappell in the Church Office. 

If you have any questions about our Children's Ministry, please contact Dixie or call 804-317-7593.
