Towards the end of July, Liftoff takes place for rising 6th and 7th graders. This weekend is for these students to make new friends and prepare for the transition from elementary school to middle school. It is perfect for new students that want to become active at a church and end their summer break with a bang.
The weekend begins at the Lighthouse for a dinner. Following the dinner, the students are taken to Orlando where they will be staying at a hotel. The next day is spent at the Fun Spot in Orlando where the students can partake in activities like go-karting, roller coasters, games, etc. For dinner, we go to Cici’s pizza for an unlimited buffet. On the last day, the group goes to Cocoa Beach. They are first taken to Ron Jon’s Surf Shop and given the opportunity to go shopping for souvenirs. Then the students are taken to the beach for a few hours until it is time to return home.
