Youth Retreats

Safe Space • Brave Space • Sanctuary

A La Foret, youth and children are empowered to be their truest selves. Trained counselors create a safe, brave space where kids know that they will be unconditionally accepted and loved for who they truly are. And because we say out loud and up front that we embrace everyone regardless of their class, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, affiliations, religion… many kids who experience exclusion elsewhere feel fully included and supported here. We believe that an unconditionally loving community leads to empowered kids and transformed lives. That’s what we do here at La Foret.

At Voyager Camp, youth are invited to come with an open mind, a fun spirit, and a friendly attitude. During the week, trained counselors and staff will set the stage and hold space for amazing friendships and growth to occur! We seek to create a memorable week filled with laughter, music, reflection, self-exploration, and don't forget the ropes course! It's the perfect environment for preteens to play, explore, and grow. Youth will form memories and friendships they'll hold dear for the rest of their lives!

(Campers entering grades 9-12)

Our theory at Music, Art, Drama, and Dance (MADD) Camp is that we can get in touch with God through the arts. However, all artistic skill-levels are present and welcome at MADD Camp. Along with engaging youth in intellectual faith conversations, we attempt to get them “out of their heads” and into experiencing the transcendent through creativity, nature, friendships, self-discovery, games, activities, and LOTS of fun. We find these moments to be the most powerful in helping young people to develop a lifelong faith.
