At the beginning of each school year, NCCS takes all Middle and Upper School students on a special retreat, providing an unparalleled opportunity for them to grow closer to each other and to the Lord. Away from the normal pressures of school and life, students are given a firm foundation of faith and friendship.

Oh, and did we mention? NCCS fall retreats are also incredibly FUN. From color wars to games to high-energy worship, students are refreshed and renewed — ready for the school year ahead.

“As a new student, I came into the retreat not knowing anyone, but I was warmly embraced by everyone. The teachers and students both made me feel so welcome. I left the retreat feeling like I had a new family.” NCCS Student

US Retreat Day Two

We had an incredible Thursday! We kicked off our morning with a fun game of taking temperatures on the way into breakfast.  It seems that everyone slept well and woke up ready for another fun day!

There are SO many fun escapades, hilarious moments, and heart-touching events that I could tell you about Day 2 of the MS Retreat. I could tell you about the Ultimate Ball Color Wars games when the sun was high in the sky but the competition was higher. I could tell you so much more. But I won’t ... because what I want to tell is SO much better. Believe me...
