You have a place in Athens...
we're here to help you find it!
WHAT IS THE ARCH RETREAT
The Arch Retreat is an overnight retreat each summer for incoming Athens freshmen. At the Arch Retreat, freshmen will have a chance to get to know the various ministries and churches that choose to partner with The Arch Retreat. They will be welcomed to the body of Christ in Athen and at UGA, connected with upperclassmen and other freshmen through Family Groups, and be encouraged in their walks with Christ...all before their first day of class!
WHERE & WHEN
July 30 - August 1 2021
At North Georgia Christian Camp in Clarkesville, GA (less than an hour from Athens and around 1.5 hours from ATL)
Registration opens soon.
WHY THE ARCH RETREAT
The Arch Retreat seeks to glorify the Lord in every aspect of its existence by welcoming the incoming freshman class to Athens and UGA by showing them their glimpse of the local body of Christ, connecting them to community, and equipping them to serve our campus and beyond.
