Geneva College’s Center for Faith and Practice (CFP) is sponsoring “City to the Sea,” an all-campus retreat over Fall Break, Friday October 12 through Tuesday October 16. During the trip, students will explore the city of Philadelphia through choosing from different excursions: Amish Life, Art, Photography or History. The group will then travel to Ocean City, New Jersey, to spend time at the shore.
“Our goals for the retreat are simple—that students will return with great stories and come back feeling rested and rejuvenated,” said Samantha Bender, Graduate Assistant for the CFP.
The cost for the retreat is $115 per person, which covers transportation, food during the excursion and lodging. Students may register at the CFP office on the top floor of the Student Center. The registration deadline is Friday, October 5.
