REBOOT Jr. High Retreat

September 15-17, 2023!

When you install updates on a phone or computer, you have to pause, and restart the device for the updates to take effect. That is what REBOOT is all about: pausing for a weekend to upgrade and reboot your faith, as you journey into a new school year.

If you loved JR Pitch, you will love REBOOT: a Retreat for Jr. High Students, a high energy kickoff to the school year featuring dynamic teaching, music, games, sport tournaments, activities and events, all geared toward Jr. High students!

Why come to REBOOT?

REBOOT is designed to support students and youth groups by:

  • acting as a high-energy kick-off to churches’ Jr High ministry year
  • inspiring and creating opportunities for faith and character-building in Jr High students
  • creating opportunities for relationship building within each group
  • encouraging and supporting youth pastors and leaders in their ministry


  • Students – Early Registration (before Aug. 15): $125
  • Students – Late Registration (after Aug. 15): $150
  • Youth Leaders Rate: $80


Additional fees may be charged for registrations less than 24 hours before the event.

Registration opening soon!  Stay tuned!

DJ ThirdLife

Aaron White has been DJing for over 20 years. What started out as a bedroom hobby DJing old school hip-hop on two old record players, quickly turned into playing live performances in his hometown of London ON. Over time Aaron moved away from the hip-hop scene and found himself immersed in the ever evolving sound that Electronic Dance Music provided. From Trance and Funky House to Mainstage, Melbourne Bounce, and Melodic House, Aaron loves to please any crowd with what EDM has to offer. Aaron has played small intimate clubs to large arena crowds with 5000+ people and currently lives in the Blue Mountain, Ontario area with his family.

Sports Tournament

There will be various sport opportunities over the weekend, including pick-up sports (soccer and basketball) and tournaments. Choose to sign up for the volleyball or dodgeball tournament (or both)! Registration will be open on the Friday night of the weekend, with tournaments being held on Saturday. All skills levels welcome!
