Trips & Retreats

Youth Trips & Retreats! 

To leave the distractions of every day life to focus on growth in Christ is invaluable! It is a gift to travel and go away with a group where full attention can be given to faith and friends. Therefore, we do several trip and retreats throughout the year.

January- winter camp at Spring Hill 

April- Spring retreat 

Summer- CIY trips MIX and MOVE (see below)
