Fall Retreat

Each year, King's students head out for an annual fall retreat at beautiful Camp Nakamun. This camp will bring you some needed time of relaxation, fun activities, and most importantly, getting to know fellow students and King's staff. We can't wait to hang out with you!

What happens at the Fall Retreat?

There are a few organized activities, but mainly, we hang out and have fun. The weekend is meant to build friendships and get to know staff and student leaders as well as other students in a beautiful, chill setting. Here are a couple of highlights!

The Annual Cups Tournament
Take four plastic cups, four sticks, and a couple of frisbees and you got yourself an outdoor game EVERYONE can participate in. Never touched a frisbee in your life? No worries. No skills are needed. It's all about community building and taking part, and the finale is always intense with a lot of cheering and laughing!



You might catch our President, Melanie Humphreys, Vice-President, Michael Ferber, and Student Success Coordinator, Kristin Lemke, brave the heights like they did last year!

Come out and join the fun! Register by adding UNIV-065A to your fall course registration through online services.
