REBOOT 2024: Recharge

Why does our phone/device die? Because we fail to plug it in. The same happens with our faith – if we don’t regularly allow Jesus to recharge us, we will become distant from Him, unable to fully experience the life-giving power He offers. We need to consistently be plugged into Jesus. 
Come enjoy an amazing weekend of fun, learning, and friendship making, all geared toward Jr. High students!

 

Registration Now Open!

Guests & Features

Speaker – Brittany deVoogd

Brittany works as a Family Ministry Pastor in a small town called Innerkip, Ontario, doing all things kids and youth! After spending the first two years of her BA at Vanguard Bible College online majoring in Pastoral Ministry and interning at churches full time, Brittany graduated from Tyndale University with a BA in International Development and a minor in Biblical Studies and Theology. She is a wife to Juan, a proud big sister, and a passionate follower of Jesus! Brittany has a deep desire to share the living Word of God to youth in their context, because it has the power to change EVERYTHING.  When not playing wild youth games, you can find Brittany eating good food, enjoying a good cup of coffee with her grandma, or discovering long-lost treasures at the thrift store. She is so pumped to see you and your crew at REBOOT 2024!

As a band, Instead of Silver has been playing together and leading worship for the last 12 years. As a modern rock/worship band they use music as a medium to share the gospel message of Jesus everywhere they play. Through their music they try and build relationships wherever they can so that they might find opportunities to connect with people wherever they are. Whether it is leading worship for a conference, a worship service, or playing a concert, IOS is a high-energy band that loves every chance to proclaim the name of Jesus.

DJ – ThirdLife

THIRDLIFE, the stage name of Aaron White, represents a pivotal evolution in his 20-year journey through the world of Electronic Dance Music. Originating from the intimate settings of his London, Ontario bedroom, where he mixed old-school hip-hop on vintage record players, his passion quickly propelled him into the local and eventually international music scene.

As THIRDLIFE, he infuses new energy and perspectives into his performances, seamlessly blending genres like Trance, Funky House, Mainstage, Melbourne Bounce, and Melodic House. This identity marks a rebirth in his career, embracing the endless possibilities of EDM to create experiences that resonate with and energize audiences.

With a history of captivating both small clubs and arenas of over 5,000 attendees, THIRDLIFE continues to break barriers and craft memorable moments. His sets are more than just performances; they are connections made through music, designed to thrill and engage every listener.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Do We Sleep? 

Bring tents or even trailers and camp out for the weekend! Some cabins are also available, with priority given to volunteers and groups coming from longer distances.

Where Do We Eat?

Food will be provided by our Kitchen team.  After getting your food from the dining hall, you can eat outside in the dining tent. In the case of bad weather, we may open up the dining hall for eating as well. 

What ages is the retreat for?

The retreat is geared toward Jr. High students, so primarily grade 7 and 8 students. Some churches include grade 6 and/or 9 students in their Jr. High ministry as well, and these students are welcome to join their groups for the weekend!

Is there a minimum or maximum group size?

Nope!  Feel free to bring one, two, ten, fifty, or one hundred students!  There will be lots to do for individuals and groups of any size, and lots of people to meet and hang out with from youth groups across Ontario.  Smaller groups may choose to partner up with another group and attend together.  

How Does Registration Work?

You collect registration information and money from your students and then register and pay for your whole group with us. Churches and groups will need to create their own individual registration form and have each of their students attending REBOOT fill it in and obtain the necessary parent/guardian signatures. Please consult with your insurance and protection plan policies to know what to include in this form. You will want to have these forms with you at the event, but you will not be required to hand them in on arrival. We do ask that you include our media release in your registration process, as we may not be covered by your group’s media release. Once you have registered, you will receive a group information form for you to fill out and hand in to the office when you arrive at the retreat.

Who Provides insurance, supervision, and programming?

  • You provide appropriate insurance and enough youth leaders to cover your church or organization’s requirements.
  • We provide the programming for the event, event insurance and insurance to cover the activities we are running, and staff/volunteers to run the event.
  • Our volunteers are selected and screened by ECM Camps, it is your responsibility to recruit and screen your own group’s leaders.
  • We will provide leaders to supervise event and program venues, but ultimately it is your responsibility to make sure you know where your own students are.
  • Our speakers will share at our main sessions, and then provide you with questions as a starting point for you to lead your group’s discussions after each session

What if we register our group and then have more students want to come?

No problem! Since the cost is per person, you can simply fill in another registration form and pay for the additional students, and then add those students to your info sheet that you will bring with you to the retreat.

Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers, age 15 and older, to fill various roles at REBOOT Retreat!  Roles include Food Services Team, Tuck Team, Games Room or Hangout Space Volunteers, and Sports Tournament Volunteers.
