Who is SHYB?


We use our gifts to encourage others and lead them closer to Jesus.

We are joyful when a part of the body is joyful and mourn when they mourn.

We seek to be the hands and feet of Christ to a lost and hurting world.

It’s time to get away. We all need this fun and crazy weekend. It helps us connect to God… Maybe you have a friend who could use it.

We serve the best food you’ll ever have away from home. None of our food is frozen and warmed up. It’s freshly made and will send you into a food coma. Sooooo good!

There will be a ton of fun stuff to do with your friends as well. We adventure, play Nine Square in-the-air and have a pretty serious Gaga Ball tournament. Our game master always has a ton of stuff to play morning, noon, and night!

On Saturday night we host a talent show/rave where we’ll party our socks off and have some serious fun. If you have a cool talent you’d like to share and want a chance to win some prizes just prepare your talent and audition on Saturday afternoon.

The cabins are also warm, toasty, and have their own private showers.

High school life can be rough sometimes. We’ll help you shuffle through the drama and give you some great sound advice to help you for life back home too.

$90.00 covers everything we described above… food, lodging, transportation, proper adult supervision, and a few extra surprises not mentioned here.

Come join us fo the weekend, we promise, you won’t be disappointed!
