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 below.


Non-Confirmation Students: Registration for retreats are NOW OPEN until 2 weeks prior to retreat date.

  1. Look below at the available retreat and information sheets to decide which one is the best fit for you.
  2. Send in your $ and form to Luisa Palting to reserve your spot. (Must receive registration 2 weeks before each retreat date.) You will be placed on the retreat of your choice on a space-available basis and a confirmation will be sent to you.
  3. We must receive your registration, fees and permission form 2 weeks prior to retreat date.
