Breakaway Weekend

February 8-10, 2019 | Wilderness Resort | Wisconsin Dells

Breakaway weekend is a winter retreat for middle and high school students from epikos church. We will be breaking away from school, the snow, and our everyday routine to spend the weekend shifting our focus back on what matters most. We will head to the Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells to connect with each other, worship, and strengthen our relationships with Jesus. All the while, we will be having a ton of fun enjoying the amazing indoor water parks the resort has to offer. It will be the best weekend of the winter!
