ABOUT the location
SUNSETS FOR DAYS
 Zephyr Point on the beautiful Lake Tahoe is the ideal setting for quite prayer, reflection, and fun in the snow!
We will be staying in cabins with three or four rooms each with youth of our same age and gender.
There will be one or two counselors in each cabin, and we will all share meals and meeting times at the nearby cafeteria and conference room.
The food is AMAZING.
