Friday morning is Chapel time. This is an opportunity for our students, staff & faculty to pause in their week and gather to worship God together. This time is used for other purposes to train, instruct and uplift one another. This is a refreshing experience for all and has led many young people into service in their church communities in the music and technical side of worship leading.

The Camp Experience

Chapelgate offers wonderful experiences for students to learn away from the school building. The cost of these retreats is built in to tuition so that each student can participate in these opportunities with his/her fellow students. We love the unforgettable memories that are made in these times.

High School: North Bay

Every two years the entire high school experiences the first four days of school together at North Bay. It is a wonderful time of class competitions, building new and growing friendships, and strengthening faith. Many times when asked for a favorite CCA memory, the students will immediately and enthusiastically mention North Bay. 2019 is a retreat year!!

Middle School: Black Rock

Each year our 6th and 7th graders participate in a three-day Outdoor Education experience at Black Rock Retreat Center in Quarryville, PA. The camp offers wonderful housing, food, a nature center, and hands-on science like dissecting frogs. It is a highlight of the middle school experience at Chapelgate!

Our 8th graders spend their last days of middle school together at Black Rock. It is their time of reflection and celebration of all that they have accomplished in their time at CCA. It, too, is a favorite memory!
