Students get break

On Sept. 17, Heritage Academy students in grades nine to 12 boarded buses and headed to Skycroft Retreat Center. They arrived eager for a break from the routine of everyday school life.

No time was wasted; the moment the students arrived, they jumped into many exciting activities. Capture the flag, the Amazing Race and team sports competitions were just a few of the events in which the students engaged.

Pastor Ken Lorow from Ohio led fun and comprehensive Bible studies, and over the three days of the trip, the students grew closer to God as well as to their peers.
