17th Annual Camping Trip

It's time to register for the Camping Trip on August 13-15 at Black Moshannon State Park.

Here's what we need from you to register. (Get a copy of the brochure at

1. Travel Arrangements.
a. Will you come on the early vans (9:00 AM), the late vans (7:00 PM), or will you provide your own transport.
b. If driving yourself, what time will you be arriving?    :00 AM/PM on Fri/Sat

2. Money.
a. The cost is $60 per person. 
b. There is a per person family discount of $10 times the number of siblings. In other words, if you have a sister coming along, each of you pays $60 - ($10 X 1 sibling) = $50.
c. There is a $10 Late Registration Fee after August 1. The idea is that we need to have you confirmed sooner rather than later so that we can accurately arrange transportation and food. As the date of the trip comes nearer, we reserve the right to refuse your attendance if you don't register in time.

SHED retreat details!

SHED Retreat, May 14-16
For all students in grade 11 and 12. We will depart from Tenth at 6.30 on the Friday evening and arrive back at Tenth for the 11am service on Sunday. The cost is $15 to cover gas and food, and students should bring spending money for the board walk!! We will be staying in the halls of Ocean City Baptist church on air-beds and there are showers too (so really its quite luxurious!). This will be a chance to end our study through Paul Tripp's "Quest for More"...if students have the book they are encouraged to bring it along with a bible and note-book. Some students (with sports commitments) will be coming up just for the Saturday night so perhaps you want to co-ordinate one vehicle doing this?? I have a full list of students but
I need definite commitments and payment this coming Sunday night.
If you have any questions please contact Jonny.
