Avalanche is more than just a weekend retreat – it is often a life changing experience for many students.
It is a chance for junior high students to join with 500 other young Canadian Baptists and see that they are not alone in their journey towards Jesus. Through high quality small group experiences, musical worship and engaging teaching, we aim to inspire your students, whether Christians or not, to begin taking steps in their young faith journeys. Beyond that there are so many great games, activities and a lifetime of memories made on this weekend.
