Since the 1st Clergy Kids (CK) Retreat we allow large chunks of time for students to play, laugh, pray, relax, and hangout; in super-sized awesome suites; with great meals; and meaningful sessions of worship, story-telling, and small groups. The retreat is lead by adult CK's who know intimately about the blessings, challenges, and joys of the CK life. Teen's lives are transformed through the retreat and lifelong friendships are formed. It is amazing to watch God bring encouragement, healing, hope and new perspectives during our short time together. Learn More
