Saturday at the Fall Retreat
Saturday Fun at the Fall Retreat!
Get ready for Saturday afternoon at the 2019 Fall Retreat! This year we are packed to the brim with great ways to explore the surrounding Harrisonburg area – so bring your friends, family and that new person you met at small group.
Are the kids itching to get the wiggles out? Check out “Back Home on the Farm”! Or maybe your small group wants to continue their conversation and a glass of wine is in order. Whatever your interest may be, you’re bound to make some fun memories this year with your Resto friends and family.
For those who are simply having too much fun on site to leave – never fear! We have a full list of activities that will take place at Massanetta Springs as well. From boat making to Ultimate Frisbee, Saturday afternoon will be hard to beat! Check out the list below for on and off site activities.
BUT, don’t forget to get back on campus by 5:30 because if you thought Saturday afternoon sounds fun, just wait for Saturday night! A Lip Sync Battle followed by a bonfire with s’mores….can it get much better?!
