YouthWorker Journal, March/April, 2005

These books contain well-planned, easy-to-execute retreats for students of different ages. Each book contains six retreats with lists of supplies, ice-breakers, games, lesson plans, Scripture references, and teaching tips. These books are concise and easy-to-understand, and the retreats contain very deep subject matter. These would be perfect for volunteer youth leaders who don't have a lot of extra planning time. Well worth your money.
