Each year during the first week of school, our middle and high school students have the opportunity to get away to the mountains in western North Carolina to kick off the school year. The three-day retreat is held at Windy Gap, a Christian retreat center. High school and middle school students each go on their own retreat where they have the opportunity to get to know their classmates and teachers better. The trip includes chapels, team-building activities, and plenty of free time! Covenant Day’s mountain retreats give students a chance to establish and strengthen relationships before the school year begins!
Kanuga is a three-day science education trip for fifth graders that takes place in April. Students get the opportunity to get to know each other better while learning about Appalachian plant and animal life and environmental stewardship. Students also learn orienteering and go on a night hike.
