WHO: 7th–12th grade Christian Scientists and your friends of all faiths

WHAT: Join DiscoveryBound teens (grades 7–12) and their friends of all faiths in the Berkshires for two full days of inspiration, fun, and friendship. There’ll be skiing/snowboarding at Jiminy Peak or snow tubing at Bousquet on Saturday and our very own DB Winter Olympics on Lake Pontoosuc the following day. Stay in condos overlooking Jiminy Peak and enjoy an evening with an inspirational speaker, huge indoor swimming pool and hot tub. There will be time for hanging out with friends – old and new. Most of all, it’s a chance for CS discussion with teens who think like you, with the support of an awesome team of chaperones coming to be with us… so don’t miss it!
