A great weekend away from the city.  Come enjoy the outdoors of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.   It will be a time to focus on God and make some great friendships.   We'll have a great speaker there for the weekend along with a great band leading us in worshiping God.    

You will have time to relax and enjoy getting to know one another.  Fun stuff like kayaking, sailing, hiking, sports, and the CAMPUS OLYMPICS will be awaiting you.
