[CONNECT] & HAVE FUN
Make friends and have fun on your journey with Christ.
RETREATS AND WEEKENDS
We’ve been “Locked-Out” – staying out all night going to Frankie’s Fun Park, The Plex, bowling, or to a movie, or “Locked-In” – staying up all night and having fun in the Youth Zone. We’ve also been known to look for the most ridiculous stuff at our annual Scavenger Hunt or to hop on the Shandon bus to head to Christian rock concerts or take part in retreats like Asbury Hills, or go on trips like skiing and Carowinds.
During the summer, you can count on several trips and activities like movies and fun parks or dinner and treats at local restaurants and our annual Day Camp filled with lots of outdoor adventures. We also continue to do service like Junior High and Senior High Mission Projects and Salkehatchie.
Shandon offers boys, kindergarten-12th grade, an opportunity to be involved in the Boy Scouts of America program.
The United Methodist Church long ago recognized scouting offers another setting for ministry to children and youth. Shandon hosts both Cub Scouts, kindergarten-5th grade, and Boy Scouts, 6th-12th grades, helping young people develop character, leadership skills and citizenship as well as self-worth and potential in a fun, adventure-filled and nurturing environment.
Shandon offers teams for all age groups that participate in the Christian Basketball League. Sign-ups begin in the fall and the league plays from November to February.
