Winter Meltdown

February 9-11 | River Valley Ranch

Winter Meltdown is our annual Middle School Retreat at River Valley Ranch (4443 Grave Run Road, Manchester, MD 21102). In February, we will join youth groups around the area for an incredible 2 days of great music, insightful teaching, powerful videos, fun games, horseback riding, dodgeball, paintball, ziplining, and much, much more!

2023 Winter Meltdown Details

We will meet at Central on Friday, February 9 at 6:30 PM to leave and will return on Sunday, February 11 around noon.

Students should bring bedding (pillow, sleeping bag, and/or linens), toiletries, warm clothes, appropriate outerwear, and a Bible (Optional: Money for the camp store)

In the past, we have relied heavily on our church bus for transportation to and from events like Winter Meltdown.  That is no longer a viable option.  We could rent large vans, but that would increase the cost of events.  In order to keep costs down, we need to rely on leaders and parents to drive.

If you are willing to drive either Friday, Sunday, or both days, please email Amy Davidson (
