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.

ALL NON-CONFIRMATION HIGH-SCHOOL TEENS:
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER for retreat NOW 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. Submit the form below and send in your $ to Luisa Palting to reserve your spot. (Must receive registration at least 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.
