[This retreat] brings life and fellowship in the midst of a cold winter. I loved every second of it.
— Jessica

This year's Youth Winter Retreat will be full of fun, fellowship, music, and Biblical teaching.

Our prayer is that this conference will help young men and women develop a lifelong devotion to Jesus Christ, an appreciation for the Reformed tradition, and a commitment to the local church.

This retreat is for 8th through 12th grade students. It will take place on the weekend of February 15-17, 2019 in the Poconos near Camelback Mountain at Streamside Camp and Conference Center. This beautiful facility, which provides meals, heated cabins with bathrooms as well as activities like snow-tubing, table tennis and a rock climbing wall, is a great place for our kids to be able to have fun and fellowship during the cold of winter while also being challenged with the truths of God’s Word.
