The Shores sits on the waterfront of the beautiful Lake Palestine. Designed for 10th – 12th grade students, the Shores features counselors your high schooler will actually find interesting, amazing dance parties, and an opportunity to grow closer to God. If you’re looking for gooder, cleaner, funner—you’ve found it!
At the Shores, we say things like paintball, waverunners, high ropes, warball, giant pool with blob and trapeze. So that when your high schooler leaves, he’ll say things like, “Best week ever!” Or, “I love my new friends!” Or our personal favorite, “God is great!” If you’re ready for some life-changing gooder, cleaner, funner kind of fun, register today!
