Tips for Planning the Perfect Summer Youth Retreat

Monday, June 24, 2019
Church groups around the country are gearing up for a summer youth retreat. Kids look forward to it with great expectations of having time away from home and with their friends, but it’s up to you as a youth minister to see to it that they have a safe time away. Of course, you’ll want to keep them busy so that they aren’t likely to wander off, but you’ll also want to give them a chance to do all the introspective activities that are a vital part of any retreat. So how do you go about planning an event like this? Here are some tips which will get you started.

Visited the Calico Ghost Town

Tuesday, May 7, 2019
Not a lot of people know about Calico Ghost Town, but this place has a lot to offer.  If you like the old western town experience then this restored mining town will give you a few hours of enjoyment. Admission is $8 per adult which you pay at a booth as you park your vehicle. Calico is a collection of restored buildings and replicas, some which serve as museums to show life in the mining town that used to reside here in the late 1800s. Many of the shacks now serve as stores or eateries. Wood crafts, pottery, rocks & minerals, a variety of gifts and novelties, candles, a store devoted to dogs, and one of those vintage photography studios can be found within Calico.

The Calico Mountains of California are a mountain range located in the Mojave Desert.
