What is it?

RED will be hosting it's second Fall Retreat called Illuminate. Illuminate is a two day, overnight experience that will be focused on helping students remove all barriers from their life that could keep them from reaching their full potential. Students often carry around heavy emotional baggage, sometimes without even realizing it, and we want to give God the chance to bring students closer to Him by getting rid of this unnecessary baggage through our spiritual breakthrough process.





  • What are the sleeping arrangements?

    • The students will be sleeping at Crossway church. There is a specific isolated sleeping area guys and girls. Each sleeping area will be staffed with multiple adult chaperones. We strictly enforce the rule that nobody is permitted in the sleeping quarters of the opposite gender.

  • What do the students need to bring?

    • The students will need: Toiletries, Towels, Bible, Air mattress/Sleeping bag, Blanket, Pillow, Clothes for 2 days (extra clothing is encouraged), Athletic clothing

  • Will beds be provided?

    • No. Students should bring a pillow and some sort of sleeping bag or air mattress.

  • Will showers be provided?

    • No, the facility we are using does not have showers. Since it's only a 24 hour event, students should consider showering before arriving.

  • Are cell phones allowed?

    • Cellphones are allowed, but strongly discouraged. We realize the importance of having a cellphone available in case of emergency, but we also realize that cellphones can distract from what God wants to do during this weekend.

  • Should students bring money?

    • Students will not need money for Illuminate as we are staying onsite for the duration of the retreat.

  • What about students who drive?

    • Students are permitted to drive to Illuminate. However, all students who drive are asked to submit their keys. This prevents students from leaving unexpectedly, helping all adult chaperones to account for every student and avoid any liability.

  • What if my student needs to leave at some point during the week?

    • Since Illuminate is only a 24 hour event, we encourage all students to make being at Illuminate for its entirety the highest priority. However, if a student needs to leave for an obligation, they will be permitted to leave and return. Students under 18 must have an adult sign them out and back in.

  • What does Illuminate's admission cost cover?

    • The admission will help cover the costs of renting out the facility for the weekend and food.

  • Will there be chaperones?

    • Yes, a team of trained adults will be at Illuminate to ensure the safety of every student.

  • What if my student has allergies?

    • Make sure to list all relevant allergies on the registration form.
