We’ve got everything necessary for a great Winter youth retreat except you and your youth group!  Don’t miss out on a chance to get away and help your youth group to connect with God and with each other this winter. Let us take care of the details so you can focus on what’s important—your students.

Space is limited, so call (814) 922-3834 or e-mail to reserve space for the approximate number you expect to bring on the weekend of your choice.  Official brochures with more information including speakers and worship leaders will be available late September and will be linked on this page.

Don’t miss out! It’s going to be a blast!

Attention Youth Leaders: Winter Blast is a great opportunity for you and your students to participate in a youth retreat where you don’t have to worry about what you are speaking on, gathering materials for activities, or what you are going to eat. We take care of the programming, worship, and the meals while you get to spend the weekend focusing on building relationships with and discipling your students! Let us do the work while you and your group grow closer to Jesus and to each other!
