Youth Retreats

Retreatsscholarships - click here to learn more about discounts for retreats

Our whole goal is to help you embrace the adventure of discipleship. To know, love and serve the Lord. We encourage you to go on retreats, experiences, etc. to grow in faith by hands-on experiences! The Lord invites us to 'come away' and to 'rest awhile' to get to know Him on a deeper level, to make our faith come alive (Mark 6:31). Retreats are a great way to do just that.

Registration opens on Wednesday, October 25 for the main campus (Ohio) and Wednesday, November 1 for the Wisconsin & Michigan campuses. Spots fill up fast! Be sure to register EARLY if there's only a certain week you can go. Otherwise, you'll be left with registering for the waitlist. This can be a life-changing, expensive week. We've got scholarships to help ease the cost (code for discount). Submit your receipt to Ben after registering.

PLEASE NOTE: CYSC is no longer using the website that was used in previous years for registration. DO NOT use this website ( has very incorrect information. This year you will use to register your child.


Unfortunately, we were unable to reserve spots the week of June 23-28. Other parishes in the area were also unable. The other available weeks, we were not confident in our ability to fill the reserved spots as they are busy weeks for area teens. However, you are still able to register your child as you usually would.
