All Youth Retreat

STUDENTS, LEADERS, AND PASTORS JOIN TOGETHER AT LAKE WILLIAMSON CHRISTIAN CENTER FOR ONE GOAL...

TO ENCOUNTER JESUS.

All youth in grades 6-12, plus 6th grade parents, are invited to join us each year in the early Fall at Lake Williamson Christian Retreat Center in Illinois. The heart behind this annual weekend experience is to create an environment for students to encounter Jesus Christ in a powerful way. These two and half days are filled with fun and life transformation - including community building, ropes courses, bonfires, indoor/outdoor recreation, and interactive worship.
