3 Retreats, 1 Mission3 Retreats, 1 Mission Image

At CYM, we have THREE incredible opportunities for you to attend a retreat! A retreat is a way to take a step back from life in order to encounter God. You will have the chance to explore your faith alongside your friends and a supportive retreat team. All retreats are open to all high-schoolers, not just Confirmation candidates. Ideally, you will experience all 3 retreats in your high-school career, either as a retreatant or a team member. Consider the options at right. >>

Priority Retreat Registration for Confirmation candidates February 15-28. Registration open to ALL HIGH-SCHOOLERS on March 1. 

Register below! Confirmation candidates register by Feb. 28.
All other high-schoolers, register by 2 weeks prior to retreat date.

For Zoom retreats, you will be given the Zoom link the week of the retreat.

2021 Retreat Options:

  1. SATURDAY, MARCH 20 – 8-10:30PM
    “Find Your Spark!” (Spark Retreat)

    Is your spark the same as your SOUL's purpose? What lights you up? Join us for a night retreat on Zoom and let's find some light in the darkness together.
  2. SATURDAY, APRIL 10 – 6-8:30PM
    “Christ is AMONG US!” (Summit Lake Retreat)

    Where do you find Jesus in your world? He is AMONG US, you know! Join us for a creative and interactive zoom gathering with the young church to find Him!
  3. FRI., JULY 30 & SAT., JULY 31 (Time TBD)
    "Let's Try This Again!" (Teen ACTS Retreat)

    Come apart and rest a while. Break away from the screen and meet new friends [and Jesus] in real life! Finally! This retreat will be in-person with all current, required safety precautions. Exact time and details to come, but save your spot now! (spaces limited)
