All medicine is to be given to the camp medical team upon check-in on Friday. Our medical personnel will distribute all medicine.

Students will be grouped into specified bunk-style cabins. Some grades may be combined to maximize sleeping arrangements. Each cabin has separate showers and restrooms. Cabins are separated by gender. ***There are only 175 beds available for overnight stay. Once the maximum capacity is reached, students will have the option to be day campers*** Any questions or concerns may be directed to our student ministry team.

Activities and schedules will be communicated closer to
Leaders & Volunteers
Each leader is interviewed and vetted for serving at META by PSM staff. Each of them will be trained, equipped, and excited to serve your student throughout the weekend. The majority of our leaders and volunteers are current Refinery and LG We will send out more information about the leaders closer to META.
Packing List
Information will be communicated closer to
Electronic Policy
iPods, iPads, cell phones, hand-held video games, laptops, are not allowed. If any of these items are brought to META, they will be confiscated and given back to the student at the end of the weekend. If there is an emergency, students will be allowed to make a phone call with designated staff phones.
Parent Communication
PSM will send out more information closer to META and communicate with parents via text and email before, during, and after META.

We are all busy. Our busyness can feel productive but it is a toxic distraction, sapping our spiritual, physical, and emotional health. Throughout the weekend, we hope our students will recognize the problem of hurry in their lives. Instead of allowing our calendars and screens to control our lives, Jesus offers us a new rhythm of life, overflowing with grace, peace, and beauty. We hope our students will learn to rest in the rush creating a balanced life instead of a burnout life.

11th Registration Opens! The registration fee is $100 (Sept.11th – Oct.18th)

18th – Nov. 1st (Late Registration is $125)
