Youth Retreat

Watch the Youtube video from the 2023 retreat!

This year our theme is "Belong!" and it's our hope that you'll find 

opportunities to make friendships that will last, as we discover that we all belong together in Christ.  

What to expect:
The retreat consists of campwide games, a scavenger hunt, worship, food and workshops.  As we did last year, there will be ample time for 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, and includes all meals on Saturday, Sunday breakfast, and all activities.  Additional family members are $75 each.  Payment should be made directly through the registration page.  Adults and youth need to complete BOTH of 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 on April 1st at 12pm OR April 4th at 7pm (Zoom link).  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 soon!
