The Men’s Residence Hall deans took all the boys to Glacier View Ranch this past weekend for a camping retreat filled with food, activities, and worship.
Upon arrival on Friday afternoon, the boys set up tents and hammocks in the Pathfinder Village camping area of GVR.
Mainly prepared by Jordan Dubini’s brother, Jared (known to the students as “Two-bini”), the food was a highlight of the trip. From Friday to Sunday, they got a variety of foods including haystacks and homemade cinnamon rolls.
Freshman Izuchi Nwankwo says, “Two-bini did a good job not overcooking or under-cooking the meals. He did a good job of making it so everyone would like it. My favorite meal was the cinnamon rolls with breakfast burritos because it had the perfect balance of flavors and they were homemade.”
Saturday was an open day where boys could explore in the forest, hang out in their tents, or play games. “I really liked playing spike ball Saturday Afternoon. It was super fun because we played it a lot, and Noah and I went undefeated for a long time,” said Dominic White, junior.
Throughout the weekend, Dean Gann shared worship thoughts on how our actions in high school change our future. Senior Joaquin Mendoza reflected, “We talked about how most teenagers leave the church, and it impacted me because I could be one of those people that turns away. But realizing that I’m not alone in the situation gave me hope that I can come back to God no matter the circumstances.”
Even though the weather in the mountains was chilly, the boys expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to leave campus and relax.
