Tall Timber 2017

This Wednesday will mark one of the beloved traditions of The River Academy; the secondary retreat at Tall Timber in Leavenworth. It’s a chance to get excited about the school year ahead, connect with other students and experience God’s presence in the midst of His wondrous creation.

Asked what she likes best about the retreat, one student shared, “Everyone [in secondary] gets a chance to interact, older kids and younger together. The older kids, grades 10-12 get there a day earlier to get ready for the younger students. Everyone gets pumped up for welcoming the younger kids.”

As the 7th to 9th graders arrive, the older students line the drive and welcome them with cheering and celebration. Older students are assigned to younger students and personally greet them, grab their luggage and show them to their cabins. Then everyone goes to a main area and the fun begins as 7th graders and new students are given their House assignments amidst lots of fanfare and excitement.

The next two days are filled with House team-building activities like the High Adventures and the zip lines. There are also times of student led worship, bible studies taught by staff and students and all are encouraged to seek quiet times of spiritual reflection. And of course, some free time to enjoy unstructured fellowship and the beautiful surroundings!

Please join us in praying that our secondary students grow closer to God and to one another as they venture off on this year’s retreat!
