Are you a college student? Could you use a break from the hustle and bustle of the college grind? Does your faith need a refresher? Do you want to spend time creating a deeper church community by catching up with old friends or making new ones? Do you like bonfires, silly games, and walks in the woods? If your answer is yes to any of those questions, you should consider going on the fall retreat. h2o's 2018 fall retreat will take place at Elkhorn Valley Christian Service Camp, which is located in the beautiful rolling hills of eastern Ohio, just over an hour away from Pittsburgh.
