Bring this Virtual or In-Person 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.
In this retreat we focus on dealing with those difficult moments or times of struggle that we have in our lives. Sometimes we may be in this moment of calm where we feel we have a handle of things, other times we can feel like we have been overwhelmed by waves and storms.
We want to offer a message of hope and healing that comes from reaching out to Christ in those moments. God will never give us a situation that we can’t handle or that He won’t provide us with a way out. With God, we can get through even the toughest of storms.
Program will be available end of October 2021!
There are 3 sessions to this retreat
Each session is 20-30+ 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.

Leaders can include students at home virtually by screen sharing.
Leaders can have progress reports sent to them for at home students.

The Calm 1
We focus on the moments of calm in our lives. Sometimes we can feel like there is nothing happening and we just want to rush through this time to the next moment of action because it's boring and uneventful. We try to bring a different perspective to these moments of calm and how they are very important for us to be able to dive deeper and work on ourselves.
We focus on the moments of impact in our lives. These times when we feel pushed down, overwhelmed, and probably hopeless. We share our own experiences going through these moments and offer things that have helped us work through them. We also touch upon the importance of mental health and how it plays a big part in these moments of impact.
We focus on healing. Healing can be hard and messy at times, but it is a crucial part that we need to go through if we want to truly rise and become stronger. We also focus on the aspect of forgiveness and how it is an important part of healing, while providing a clearer understanding of what forgiveness really is.
