What is a Dorm Retreat?
What is it about and Why have it?
I am so glad that I can tell you about another adventure of my life at Calvin and KHvR.
A dorm retreat is about bringing the small communities in a dorm into ONE MASSIVE community. I say this because each floor is its own pre-formed community. The dorm retreat helps facilitate bringing the different pre-formed communities into one whole, unified community. The community grows closer together when people within the community know each other by name. Thus, the retreat helps grow a community closer together while having fun outside the dorms!
Why come to dorm retreat?
- The people!
- The beautiful scenery that is different from Calvin's campus.
- The fun and silly games we play!
- Swing dancing!
Dorm retreat is an experience I will never forget from living in the dorms. It is a place where I can find peace and God through nature. Dorm retreat is one of the places where true friendship forms, and you create your authentic self and community. I suggest everyone go on your dorm and floor retreats! Plus, it is all about having fun!
