The Summer Stretch Capstone is designed to give completed 6-8 grade youth a taste of overnight service trips. In this half-week trip, youth travel to the Midtown area of Minneapolis to partner with Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches through an Urban Immersion Service Retreat. Participants stay in dorms near the Midtown Global Market and spend two full days serving and learning about God’s activity in an urban setting. To close out the experience, participants go to Valleyfair for fellowship and fun. Participation in the June and July sessions of Summer Stretch is helpful but not required in order to participate.
*All projects and recreational activities are subject to change. Please keep an eye out for emails at the onset of each session so we can properly alert participants of any changes in our scheduled outings.
