Retreats are held once or twice each year. Many are overnight events either at our facility in Cottage Grove or camping at an area venue. Local churches are always invited to send their youth to join us for these overnighters. Other retreats are week-end adventures at a Wisconsin retreat center with churches throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota sending youth. No matter the location there is always plenty of food, interactive games and digging into God's Word with faith discussions.
