January 14-17, 2022, Eastmont Students will attend the STRENGTH TO STAND Conference in PIGEON FORGE, TENNESSEE, for Winter Retreat. This year’s conference lineup is powerful, and our lodging accommodations will be second-to-none. Specific times and arrangements will be posted once all activities and travel plans are confirmed. The information below will provide a glimpse of all that awaits our students at Winter Retreat 2022
We plan to charter a bus and carry an additional vehicle. We will depart Eastmont the afternoon of Friday, January 14th around 2:00p.m. We will return to Eastmont the afternoon/evening of January 17th. The exact times and travel details will be provided when all arrangements are fully in place.
The group will stay at KING OF THE MOUNTAIN, a large cabin in Pigeon Forge just minutes away from the conference venue. Amenities include a large kitchen and eating area, scenic views of the Smoky Mountains, indoor pool, movie theater area, arcade games, pool table, hot tubs, and more.
Aside from the conference lineups, our cabin is located only 20 minutes from Gatlinburg, TN, where groups can visit shops and participate in many individual activities. There are also numerous group activity options along the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. Specific attractions have not been decided upon yet.
Most meals will be prepared and served by our Eastmont adults during this trip. Students will, however, be required to purchase a few meals on their own. Once we know our exact schedule and times for the activities listed above, we will know which meals will be provided and which need to be purchased.
