The Diocesan Youth Ministry has three winter retreats designed to give diocesan youth a chance to take a break and draw nearer to God for a weekend of relaxation, fun, and worship. Think of it as a week-long camp crammed into two-and-a-half days! Each retreat is directed by a youth or children’s minister in the diocese and staffed with a team of adult sponsors and college counselors.
All three retreats take place at Camp Allen once a year. The Intermediate and Jr. High Retreats run during the same weekend in the spring, and the Sr. High “Midwinter” Retreat takes place at the end of December. The Intermediate Retreat is for grades 4 through 6, Junior High Retreat for grades 6 through 8, and Senior High Midwinter Retreat for grades 9 through 12.
The cost for each retreat is $75, which covers lodging, food, and a really cool t-shirt.
High School Midwinter: December 26-28, 2019
Junior High & Intermediate Retreats: March 6-8, 2020
