Power to Change's hosts annual fall retreats across Canada called Summit. It is going to be an amazing weekend for you to discover Jesus with post-secondary students from Kingston, Ottawa and Montreal! You will be able to learn more about Him through music, inspiring speakers and time spent alone with Him. You will learn how Jesus impacts our every day life and how to share that great news with those around you.
Get out of the city, away from school, build new friendships and launch into the school year. It is going to be ridiculously fun!

What if I have dietary restrictions?*
If you have an intolerance or allergy that we should know about, please indicate it in your registration information.
*We can accomodate for some with allergies or intollerances but this is an outdoor camp so you may be required to bring some of your own food. There is a fridge you can use if needed.
What are the accommodations?
Everyone will be in a cabin with a group of other students from your campus (we will try our best to at least). The cabins are in a rustic setting and are bunk bed style with padded mattresses and heating. You will need to bring your own bedding or sleeping bag.
What if I don’t know anyone?
It’s ok if you don’t know anyone. There will be plenty of opportunity to get to know people from your campus, especially on the bus ride up, in the cabins or during free time activities. Don’t be surprised if you end up making life-long friendships during the weekend.
What’s the weather like?
The weather may be warm but can be very cold. Although the daytime can get as warm as 20 degrees, the evenings and nights have been known to dip below 0 degrees. Please bring a warm sleeping bag/extra blankets, and a variety of clothes for layering, especially a sweater/jacket for the evenings. Also be prepared for rain just in case.
