Lighthouse Family Retreat serves children with cancer and their families at a seaside retreat in Florida to help them laugh, restore family relationships, and find hope in God. Transit students and their parents will engage in a variety of roles, including cooking, cleaning, serving, playing games, production set-up, Vacation Bible School, talent show planning, and more. This is a rare opportunity to create a peaceful and fun environment for those who have little rest from worries at home.
