U Getaway 2019

Tyndale University College students currently enrolled in a BA or non-modular BRE, are invited to the "U Getaway" at Muskoka Bible Centre (MBC) on September 20-22, 2019. 

Muskoka Bible Centre is located on Mary Lake just 2 hours north of Tyndale, near Huntsville.arial view of Muskoka Bible Centres multiple buildings on Mary lake and surrounding forest in fall colours of orange, red, and yellow.

The weekend will be the perfect early term break: you'll be back into the swing of things and papers, assignments, and exams are not yet overwhelming.  Jump start the academic year by building connections and meeting new people at the "U Getaway".  This is the perfect time to leave the urban jungle of Toronto, bask in the wonder of God's creation, and breath the fresh air of the Muskoka's.  Nothing clears the mind like fresh air, breathtaking scenery, and adventure.  You don't want to miss it. 

Apply to be a part of the "U Getaway".  Transportation, lodging, & food are included in the fee.  All you have to do is sign up, pack up, and show up.
