Welcome High Schoolers!

Check out what we have in store for you:

RETREATS

3 Retreats, 1 Mission3 Retreats, 1 Mission Image

At CYM, we have THREE incredible opportunities for you to attend a retreat! ALL high-schoolers are invited to all 3 retreats and we challenge you to experience the TRIFECTA before graduating! (Attend as a retreatant or team member!) They are each unique and amazing.

  • SPARK! 1 nighter in March
  • Summit Lake - a 2 nighter in April
  • Teen ACTS - a 3-nighter in July

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 high-schoolers are invited, but if you are a Confirmation Candidate, you are required to attend one of these retreats as part of the Confirmation process!
