Date July 10-14
Coordinator Students Team
Summer Camp | R3 | Gatlinburg, TN | Current 10th – 12th Grades
What is R3?
R3 has the vibe of a family vacation with the intentionality and impact of a spiritual retreat, all taking place in Gatlinburg, TN. Students stay the week in incredible cabins overlooking the Smoky Mountains with features like movie theatres, air hockey tables, arcade games and so much more.
Each day will consist of: mornings spent learning important Worldview topics and putting them into practice, afternoons on excursions experiencing some of what Gatlinburg has to offer, and evenings engaged in small group discussion.
This year the Worldview Team will be teaching on “Evidence for God’s Existence.” If you want to have increased confidence in the existence of God or be able to better articulate to a friend why you believe what you believe, then this is a perfect opportunity for you.

We do not want finances to stand in the way of a student attending these life transforming events! That is why we offer scholarships. We do ask families to cover as much as they can afford and avoid using a scholarship to simply reduce the cost when they can afford the trip. This ensures as many students as possible have the opportunity to attend who otherwise would not.
If you would like to register but need financial assistance, please click here and fill out the scholarship application. After completing the application, you will be contacted by the student coordinator with confirmation within 3 business days and will then be able to register accordingly.
If you would like additional information about scholarships, please contact the student coordinator at .
Any cancellation made prior to 30 days before the event will receive a full refund. Any cancellation made less than 30 days prior to the start of the event will forfeit payment unless Connection Pointe fills this registration spot with another registrant. Cancellations must be made by contacting the Student Ministry Coordinator, and individuals should obtain a confirmation of cancellation to receive any refund.
Who are the adult leaders on the trip?
We take leaders who have been thoroughly vetted and completed background checks. Virtually all the leaders are those who have mentored the students throughout the year. Ratios are generally around a 1:7.
What type of transportation do you use?
We rent vans from local rental companies. Each adult driver is approved via a state motor vehicle background check.
How do you determine rooming assignments?
During the registration process, you will express roommate preferences. Our goal is for every student to be in a room with at least one friend.
What do students need to bring on the trip?
Once registered, the trip coordinator will send you detailed information as the trip gets closer, including any packing instructions.
What if I have additional questions?
Feel free to reach out to us at . We would be happy to answer all your questions.
