Her strategies for success include behaviour covenants, expectations and guidelines, creating rituals, assembling resources, tips for combining junior and senior highs on a retreat, resources for games and music, room and van assignments. Each retreat includes two meditations; detailed program notes for small groups with three to four sessions per retreat; ideas for a worship service and evening devotional; and fun, group-building activities. Each lock-in is theme-based and has games, small-group time, worship ideas, and sleep time. The CD-ROM includes reproducible meditations, counselor notes, handouts, and worship flyers.
