Guest speakers from the AFLC Seminary as well as AFLC pastors will present relevant and compelling sessions that will challenge the students to go deep in their faith in Christ. Equipping our children with the tools they need to stand strong in a fallen world includes a continuing spiritual education and fellowship with other youth with the same beliefs! We feel that this retreat provides a place where your child will grow closer to Jesus.
Sno Daze - Luke Temte
Youth Director from Grace Free Lutheran Church in Maple Grove, Minnesota.
SIDExSIDE - Owen Parsley

SIDE X SIDE WINTER YOUTH RETREAT IS FOR STUDENTS IN GRADE 9 - 12
SNO DAZE WINTER YOUTH RETREAT IS FOR STUDENTS IN GRADES 4 - 8
Parents or youth leaders may decide that your 7th or 8th grade students should register for Side X Side even if they haven't reached the 9th grade yet.
This decision is often based on which event their friends will be attending. For instance- if your youth group combines 7th or 8th grade students with the high school kids, you might want to consider enrolling them in the Side X Side event rather than the Sno Daze event.
If they wouldn't normally mix 7th or 8th grade students with the high school kids, then it might be best to enroll the 7th & 8th grade students in the Sno Daze event.
if there is any doubt which retreat the student should attend, consider sending them to the recommended age appropriate retreat. Much of the discussion and content in the older side X side retreat will be more challenging, require more focused attention, and more maturity.
We follow the same principals and guidelines expected for youth attending FLY Convention.
Cell phone use; Zero tolerance policy; Clothing Guidelines.
Find these online under Helpful Information at https://www.flyconvention.org/
and share with your youth prior to attendance at ARC events.
