High School Retreat 2019

Come enjoy the crisp, clear winter air at our Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center, and meet young people and adults from all over the diocese! We will have small group workshops, indoor and outdoor games, worship that gets you both moving and thinking, lively worship, and above all, time away from the stress of everyday life, so that we can pay a little more attention to the Spirit of God!

Together, we will explore how finding our own vibes, identifying ourconnections, and nurturing our spirit life can contribute to finding the Good Life that Christ promises and that God dreams of for us all.

Adult mentors will also have the opportunity to take part in programming for youth workers in the church. 


Know that we don't want ANYTHING to stand in the way of youth taking part in this weekend. 

  • If money is an issue for youth or adults, scholarships are available.
  • If you don't have a ride, we will help to figure it out -- NOTE: We provide bus transportation to and from outside Boston.  (Exact locations to be determined based on interest) for $25 per person.
  • If you can't find an adult chaperone, we will work with you to find supervision.

 Please contact H. Mark Smith ASAP ( if anything is standing in your way and we WILL figure out how to make it work. If you want to go, you CAN!
