The first annual Young Adult Retreat will take place September 13-15, 2019 at Camp Guggenheim for Young Adults between the ages of 21-35.

Come and encounter Christ in the beauty of creation at Lower Saranac Lake, in Each Other and in Yourself. The plan for this retreat will be to explore and share on the needs and longings of young adults in today’s Church and how God may be calling young adults to help each other grow in holiness and deeper faithfulness in a casual and relaxed setting.

Our chaplain will be Fr. Scott Belina.

The cost for the retreat is a minimal $30 per person to help defray the cost of the meals.

What to Bring:

Be sure to bring pillow, bedding and towels and toiletries

You may want to bring a fan for your dorm room
