BYC 2018 Fall Sabbath Retreats


Fall Sabbath Retreats provide a place for BYC teenagers to get away and connect with themselves, with each other, and with God. We go away for two nights to Suttle Lake Camp. Lodging, food (dietary restrictions accommodated), and a whole lot of fun is provided! 

In our crazy hectic world, it is no surprise that our teenagers sorely lack time to simply breathe, relax, and remember that the purpose of their lives is not productivity. We try to offer that space, where kids can just play, get creative and remember that they are enough already, no matter their sports acumen, GPA, or artistic talent.

On the retreat, we’ll rest, play, and teach about how to practice Sabbath along the way. There’ll be organized group games, free time with options for running around, doing crafts, or other adventures, times to meditate or try yoga, plenty of chances to sleep or nap, and eat delicious food. The bonding that happens is pretty magical.

If you have any questions—feel free to contact any other member of the BYC staff. We want every BYC student to be able to experience this awesome weekend, so if you have any questions or want to talk about scholarship possibilities, that’s what BYC staff is here for.
