Youth Retreat

Click above to watch a slideshow of the Youth Retreat on April 5-7. 2024

What to expect
The retreat consists of camp-wide games, a scavenger hunt, worship, food and workshops.  

There will also be free time so you can play card games, basketball, volleyball, "carpet ball", gaga ball, or something else entirely.  

Arrival & Departure:
All participants should plan to arrive at Quinipet before 7pm on Friday.  (Carpools are encouraged!)  We'll be headed home at lunchtime on Sunday.  (See map)


The cabins at Quinipet offer heated, dorm-style housing with bunk beds, bathrooms and shower stalls.  



 How To Register:
 The cost of the retreat is $125 for the first person, and $75 for each additional person in a family. $75 for young adult leaders (30 years old and younger.) 


Payment should be made directly through the registration page. Adults and youth need to complete the attached waivers and bring them with you to the retreat.  (Scholarships based on need are available.  Contact david.czeisel@nyac-umc.com.) 

All adult chaperones (18+) must be background checked by their local churches and will be required to receive
 district Safe Sanctuaries training.  Please register for the retreat and attend the online training (date & time TBA).  All adults on the retreat are there to help all of the kids, though we strongly encourage at least two chaperones from each participating church.  

If you or your group have any questions, please contact Pastor David Czeisel (david.czeisel@nyac-umc.com).
Hope to see you there!
