Breakaway | January 7th - 14th, 2017

Description & Details

Breakaway (formerly known as LA) is our winter trip. The idea behind it is that we believe every once in a while it is healthy to break away from the normal routine and the chaos of life to go and meet with God. We find that when we do this, it is amazing how much more clear God's voice becomes in our lives! The trip is held in West Palm Beach, Florida the week before Akron's spring semester starts back up each year. The week includes large amounts of teaching, worship, breakout sessions and time alone with God which is scheduled in every day. It also includes lots of free time, time at the beach and other random Florida adventures. This trip is heavy on the discipleship side and is meant to challenge, recharge and refocus your faith!
The cost for the trip is $250. It covers all food, transportation, lodging and activities. The only thing you need money for is food on the way down and back. We will be driving down in charter buses and vans. We will be staying at a Boy Scout Camp and sleeping in cabins and tents. Indoor sleeping options include cabins and screened shelters. These spaces will be limited, and will be given to those who sign up for them first. T-shirts will be given to those who sign-up on or the early deadline (Nov. 25th). The FINAL DEADLINE to register is NOON on Monday Dec 26th, 2016

Paddleboarding/Kayaking

Learn the new sport of stand up Paddleboarding. The trip will consist of a 5 mile trip (twice as long as last year) in the Jupiter Inlet. Participants will get a chance to spend some time both in a Kayak and on a paddleboard. The group will be broken down into 2 groups of 35 and if tides allow you will be making the trip either to or from the boy scout camp, where we will be staying, to the Jupiter Outdoor Center. The trip will require a significant amount
of paddling so please keep this in mind before you sign up (75 spaces).

Snorkeling

Spend your day exploring the reefs and wrecks of Ft. Lauderdale on the glass bottom Aqua View. The boat will drive you out to several different locations where you can drop into the ocean and explore away. Your mask, fins, and snorkel will all be provided. This is a great option for a wide variety of people

(50 spaces).

Extra Beach Day

Lets be honest, when you live in north east Ohio an extra day at the beach in January always sounds appealing. If you would like one more day to hang out at the beach to kick back and relax then this is the choice for you! (56 spaces)

Everglades Fan Boat/ Alligator show

If you have ever wanted to check out the famous FL Everglades then this is your chance. Jump on a fan boat and skim across Florida's largest national park looking for alligators and other native wildlife. The tour concludes with crazy people playing with alligators (24 spaces).

Drift Fishing

Try your luck at some drift fishing on a 55ft boat in the Atlantic Ocean. The trip will be roughly 4 hours long and will be located about a mile offshore of Ft Lauderdale beach. You will target Kingfish, Mackerel, Tuna, Bonito, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, and even the occasional Sailfish. Different species bite at different times of the year but there are lots of species that are possible to catch. On a drift fishing trip, you head to key fishing spots about a mile offshore, shut down the engines, and then let the wind and current slowly push the boat over the reefs and wrecks as you fish. Everyone fishes off the side of the boat, fishing the surface, mid-depth or on the bottom (35 spaces).
