The rush from camp has worn off, the holidays are past, we’re firmly into the new year. Now is the perfect time to recharge and retreat into the natural world during our winter retreats. These are moments for you to retreat to familiar settings, away from the business of life, to seek after recognizing God’s presence in our own lives- especially in the wonder that is God’s creation. Come and join us and your fellow youth from around the region as we find ourselves in places of quiet and peace where we will recognize that we can find God if we are willing to push away those loud distractions of the world, at least for a little while.
