MEA Getaway for High School Students

MEA Getaway High School Adventure. Every Fall, hundreds of high school students and adult leaders venture to one of the most beautiful camps in Minnesota for a wonderful four-day, three-night retreat at Young Life's Castaway Club. Students in 9th through 12th grade get a chance to break free from the chaos and noise to consider a real relationship with the God that loves and adores them. The weekend includes unbelievable programing with awesome games, hilarious skits, plenty of relaxation time at the giant hot tubs, in the game room, or one of the outdoor fire-pits. The highlight of the weekend is the awesome music and the inspirational speakers.
