SPRING RETREAT IS FINALLY HERE!
FRIDAY, APRIL 13 (6pm) – SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2018 (noon)
This April comes the event you’ve been waiting for all year… THE MIDDLE SCHOOL RETREAT! You don’t want to miss out on this weekend! Join Christa & the Middle School Leaders (& a special guest!) as your newly made up country of new friends competes in the first ever SPRING OLYMPICS IN THE WORLD! (AKA THE SILLIEST GAMES EVER!!)
This will be a super fun weekend with games, friends, small groups, free time & more! All activities, discussions and small groups are planned by WCCMS while we enjoy the space that we rent from Ihduhapi. On Friday, April 13, Retreat check-in begins at 6pm at WCC’s West Entrance, by the Gym. On Sunday, April 15, we will return by noon.
The cost for the weekend is $125 and includes 2 nights stay at Camp Ihduhapi, 4 meals & lots of snacks, transportation by professional bus drivers, games, all activities, & so much fun! Scholarships are available. For more information about scholarships, please email WCC MS Director, Christa Workmon at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have been on a past retreat (or overnights!) with Christa and Nate, you know about all the fun things to expect during this weekend. Invite a friend and register online now! All 6th, 7th & 8th graders are invited!
Any questions can be answered by emailing Christa Bowman Workmon, Middle School Director at email@example.com

Last weeks Happenings:
We enjoyed a little spring break impromptu fun by going to Honey & Mackie’s for ice cream and french fries!

I LOVE SEEING WHAT MIDDLE SCHOOLERS ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUTSIDE OF WCC but getting their event schedule is pretty challenging sometimes! I need your help, please let me know about your middle schooler’s events (THINK PLAYS, GAMES, MUSICAL PERFORMANCES, SHOWS, SCHOLAR COMPETITIONS, ETC!)
Here’s how you can let me know about upcoming dates:
- Put a note in the Where’s CBW Mailbox in the Middle School Corner at WCC OR
- Fill out this quick 5 questions request to let me know when and where to go.
Thanks for letting me know! I try my best to make it to their events when I know about them.
