Super Summer

Super Summer

June 12th-16th

What Super Summer Is

Super Summer exists to inspire and equip students as Kingdom-minded leaders. Super Summer focuses on 5 core values; spiritual growth, Spiritual Disciplines, Leadership, Evangelism, Discipleship, and Service/Ministry.

Super Summer Oklahoma began in 1986 as a training opportunity for youth ministers to bring Christian young people who were interested in advancing their personal spiritual growth. Super Summer has over 3000 participants and promises to continue growth as the need for student leaders intensifies.

Super Summer Oklahoma is an independent camp operated by a board of directors made up of youth ministers, pastors, and laymen. Super Summer Oklahoma takes place at Oklahoma Baptist University the first three full weeks of June each year.

God continues to prompt Super Summer Oklahoma to provide a cutting edge vision and resource to churches and youth pastors that will effectively explode this generation of Christian teens into a world that desperately needs hope and salvation.

DNOW


D-Now Event: February 17-19, 2017


Register Today

What is a D-Now Weekend?

“D-Now” stands for Disciple Now. So, a D-Now Weekend is a Disciple Now Weekend. In its simplest form, a Disciple Now Weekend is a weekend retreat for a youth group. Whereas some retreat weekends are more about getting away (which is NOT a bad thing), D-Now Weekends put a high premium on discipleship in and around our church. There are Large Group sessions where a speaker can move the weekend’s theme along from a big-picture perspective. And there are super-intentional Small Group times where students go deeper with their individual small group leaders. It’s a focused time of spiritual growth and application

.

“Host Homes” are a key feature of D-Now Weekends. A host home is where a family in the church agrees to host a Small Group for the weekend. They’ll usually spend a Friday and Saturday night there and will eat a few meals with the host home family.

We are really looking forward to this great weekend. It will, without a doubt, be one of the most incredible weekends of their life. Here is the information you and your student need in order to participate in this weekend.

Schedule: Friday, February 17, we will be getting things started at 7:00pm in the Student Room at CrossRidge Church. The weekend will end after Sunday School on February 19 at 12:00pm. The students are required to be with us from start to finish. If they have a minor schedule conflict, fill out a Time Away Card and turn it in upon arrival.

Time Away Card: If your student already has something scheduled during the retreat times, complete the Time Away Card. It will need to be signed by the student, a parent, and me, and taken to the host family at the beginning of the weekend. Extra copies will be provided on Friday night if necessary. Please consider letting your student come, even if they have a minor conflict with the schedule. We will work with you so they can come as much of the time as possible.

What to bring:

  • Bedding (sleeping bag, bed roll, pillow, etc.)
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, medicine, and "other stuff")
  • Towel and washcloth
  • BIBLE and writing utensil (pencil or pen)
  • Comfortable and casual clothes for the whole weekend
  • Clothes for recreation!!
  • Any extra snacks you might want
  • BRING YOUR FRIENDS!!!
  • Rules Sheet, Health Form, and Time Away Card (if necessary)
  • You may have your cell phone, but it is to be used ONLY to call parents!!

Payment: The cost for the entire weekend is $60.00. This includes all meals, a T-shirt, materials, and any other activities we will do. All forms and money are due no later than Sunday February 11, but preferably earlier if at all possible!

D-Now Weekend is going to be one of the greatest weekends of your student’s life, so begin praying and preparing for it NOW! If you have any questions concerning any area of the weekend, please feel free to contact Simon at 972.292.1953 or simon@crclife.org!

Camp



Register Today!

When: July 26-30 (Leave late July 25 and return early on July 31)

Where: Glorietta, New Mexico

Cost: $350

Depost: $50 (April 1)


This year students will be heading to the mountains in Glorietta, New Mexico, for summer camp. Last year, students and adults had an amazing week of worshiping Jesus, diving into the Word, and hanging out with each other and we don't expect anything less this year.

The cost of camp is $350 per student. This is a $25 increase over last year. The past few years we have gone to camp at Mt Lebanon which is just south of Dallas which means this trip will be farther away and will introduce most, if not all, to a place they haven't been before.

SPACE IS LIMITED

If you have a student who wants to go we need you to register online and make a $50 deposit. The deposit holds the students spot. With the new registration system you will be able to log in and make payments over the next few months. You will also be able to check his/her balance.

In the past we were able to adjust spots and make adjustments up till the time of camp. However, we will not be able to do that this year due to transportation and camp requirements.

If you have a student who wants to go but you do not have the funds to pay you will need to contact George Bewley by email or at the church office at 972.292.1953.

Forms

We will posting forms soon. Please check back.

What We Need and When We Need It

  • Deposit $50 - April 1
  • Forms - June 12
  • Final Payment - June 12
