Bring this Virtual Experience into your school today!
We understand that retreats will look very different this upcoming school year 2021/2022.
We passionately believe that students can still have a positive spiritual experience on retreat during this time, either in person, in their classrooms or at home! We will be offering one Virtual retreat, with a brand new theme that can be offered for all high school students.
This retreat will focus on our current situation, living through this pandemic, adapting to change, the importance of loving our neighbour, mental health and above all, holding onto hope in these difficult times. We have received many messages from young people that they feel disconnected from the world, their friends and even themselves. We feel there is an urgency to share the message of hope and inspire them to share that message with others through their faith and love.
There are 3 sessions to this retreat
Each session is 30+ minutes in length, with different elements
Elements are: games, talk with testimony, activity, discussions & prayer
Elements range in length of time, incase you need to adjust
Leaders can choose to run the retreat in 1 half day or break it up over 3 days.
All pre-recorded content.
Individual teach logins available upon request.
Leaders can include students at home virtually by screen sharing.
Leaders can have progress reports sent to them for at home students.
HopeStone CAN facilitate at an additional rate if preferred.
Do we allow things to come to the light? Do we try to encourage the truth to come to the surface? Bringing transparency into our lives,
even when it is hard.
Why does God allow darkness into our lives? Do others go through these lonely, isolating, angry & hard times? Finding our way back & navigating the darkness.
Where can we find hope
& strength? How can we strengthen our faith? This is the moment to rise, to bring light to the dark & know that God is merciful amid all the suffering.

** Unlimited use gives you access until June 2021. You can use at your own pace and as often as you'd like. Teachers/chaplains can include students at home if they are sharing their screen with those students. We understand some schools have half the class at home and half the class in-person.
** HOPESTONE FACILITATES means that we have one person from our team log on, sharing their screen with your class virtually. They would facilitate the retreat for the students. Up to 3hours in length on one day (morning or afternoon). Teachers would need to assist with tech on their end to ensure students can see the program, along with assisting with any resources (pens and paper) needed on their end and finally with group discussions.
Contact us for more details about this program and to discuss pricing options and logistics.
We understand that every school and school board will handle retreats in a different manner and we will be as flexible as we possible can.
