Youth Trip Surfing
Attention Surfers!

Parents, if you marked that your child was interested in the surfing option on their online trip registration, we would like to confirm if they are still planning to participate. Also, there is space available for those still interested who did not mark they are interested.

There is no experience necessary to participate! Mt. Cross Lutheran Camp works with Club Ed Surf School, which provides one instructor for every 4 participants. Classes are approx. 2 hours and include all supplies. Those not surfing will hang out at the beach and swim in the ocean!

Cost is $75 per person . Please drop off a check to Ian made out to Sheridan Lutheran Church. Please put "Surfing" in the memo line.
Trip Payments
The third youth trip payment of $125 is due in March.
Please send a check/cash marked with your child's name to the church or drop it in the offering plate or church office. If you haven't submitted your February payment, please do so as soon as possible. Please let Ian know if you have questions.
