Youth retreats are alive and well in the Rio Texas Annual Conference! With the creation of the new conference, the programming and support of youth camps moved to the seven districts. It took some time for adjustments, but the 2016 Midwinters were a big success!
The Las Misiones District held their camp at Camp Young Judea January 15-18. They had over 430 students in attendance.
El Valle and the Coastal Bend district teamed up this year for a retreat at Lake Mathis. They hosted 360 students on January 15-18.
Three districts joined together for a Midwinter event at Mount Wesley on February 12. The Hill Country, Crossroads and West districts had over 140 students at their camp.
There is still one Midwinter left to go in the Capital District. The retreat will be held Feb. 26-28 at Camp Tejas in Giddings, TX.
God continues to move powerfully through the young adults of the Rio Texas Annual Conference. Each camp provides another opportunity for students to begin a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and move deeper into a life of discipleship.
MARCH 1 UPDATE: Capital District's Midwinter at Camp Tejas in Giddings reported an attendance of 189.
Over 1,100 junior high and high school students attended a Rio Texas sponsored Midwinter this year.
