This retreat focuses on building your group as they begin their confirmation journey together. You will be with your own group for any small group activities. Confirmation staff will facilitate the Saturday morning and afternoon activities, but we expect adults will participate fully with the confirmands. We have provided two youth group times so your group can check in, process, or follow up on the activities of the day. This is your time to plan and you can use it for any other activities or experiences you want the group to share together. You are welcome to bring snacks for your group during youth group time.
