Nov 3 -5 Give Thanks and Pass the Frisbee 

Young Adults & 11th-12th grade

Take a breath, let out a laugh, kick off your shoes or lace up your sneakers.  In the midst of exams, college applications, family holiday preparations and other things that fill your plate, treat yourself to a weekend of play, pure and simple. Of course, there’s always time for a soul-satisfying conversation around the meaning of life and our place in the world, served with hot tea and fresh cookies.

And a chance to reconnect with, or meet for the first time, people who love you just as you are.


Nov 17-19  From Aargh or Ugh to AHHH 

6th -8th grade

This retreat we’ll practice different methods of transforming aargh and ugh feelings into aaahhhs and helping others do the same.


Dec 1-3  Move It, Move It 

4th -5th grade

We move through our lives full throttle ahead or one step at a time.  Slow intentional movements like yoga and tai chi.  Spurts and sprints in games of tag. Expressing ourselves with silly walks or free-style dance.  Let’s gather to share our moves and invent new and cool ways to interact and explore the space we inhabit.
