Need to Breakaway?

Parents of teens… Do you need a break?  Let’s be honest.  Raising teenagers is hard, really hard these days (and probably always).  And sometimes it helps to take a break… to breathe a little, to clear our minds, to strengthen our hearts.

And now let me ask this… Parents of teens, does your TEEN need a break?  A break from the busyness, from the drama, from the pressure, from the schoolwork and from the never ending phone and social media connections that seem to be their lives these days?

Well, do I have great news for you.


January 31st-February 2nd, we are taking our annual Youth Group Winter Retreat, which is actually named Breakaway.  The goals of Breakaway are simple.  We want to provide teens the chance to set down their phones and interact.


Throughout the weekend, we provide lots of opportunities for them to play games and hang out


And under the care of some pretty awesome leaders.


We go outdoors and enjoy the beauty that a Pennsylvanian winter brings.


And no worries about the sporadic winter weather…


Because the tubing hill always has snow (they make their own if needed).


Our teens are never bored because there are always people to hang out with and always fun things to do.


Breakaway is a retreat that has been going on for years and years and it’s ability to connect and strengthen relationships is outstanding.


Also, we have a Talent show.


Our teens need this break.  Because as hard as it is for us, it’s equally hard for them.  And sometimes breaking away brings the peace and clarity and joy that they all truly need.


As well as the opportunity for them to know just how loved and awesome they are.


Breakaway also provides opportunities for our teens to grow in their faith and to learn more about Jesus.  And in my opinion, there is nothing greatest that we can teach our teens than these incredible things.


EBCYG (Eastport Bible Church Youth Group) would absolutely love to have your teen come and Breakaway with us this year.  If you are looking for more information, we have a parent meeting tonight at Eastport Bible Church (January 16th) at 6:00pm where we would love to share more about the weekend and how it can help your teen.  The cost for the weekend is $159, but if that is an issue, we have scholarships available from people who care about our teens and value this incredible weekend.


Send your teenager to Breakaway.  You won’t regret it and they won’t either.  We would absolutely love to have them join us for this incredible weekend together.  Feel free to email or message me any questions you might have (
