Adventurer Family Weekend, organized by Chesapeake Conference’s Children’s Ministries Department, was held from June 2-4 and witnessed a record turnout of over 570 Adventurers, family, and friends. Seventeen clubs from across the conference participated in the weekend’s event, which took place at Highland View Academy and Mt. Aetna Retreat Center in Hagerstown, Maryland.
The weekend’s retreat, themed “I’m a King’s Kid,” was a delightful mix of spiritual and recreational activities. Javier Scharon, pastor of the Dover First and Forest Grove churches in Delaware, served as the featured speaker.
The Adventurers enthusiastically participated in a range of activities over the course of the weekend, making it an unforgettable event for everyone involved. Adventurers participated in engaging games, crafts, and class sessions throughout the event that fueled creativity and teamwork among the participants.
“With record attendance for the ‘I’m a King’s Kid’ Adventurer Family Weekend, we also had an abundance of energy, smiles, laughing and learning,” says Ann Reynolds, Children’s Ministries director for Chesapeake Conference. She added that she enjoyed seeing everyone learning the event’s theme song, “I’m So Blessed.” She said, “You could hear both kids and adults alike singing the song all weekend, even during meal times.”
