About the Summer Retreat

The Summer Retreat is a four-day escape from the busyness of life to focus on knowing God, developing relationships and having crazy amounts of fun! It’s for all Red Rocks Youth students who have finished 6th-12th grade. We take buses to Crooked Creek Ranch where students stay in cabins with their small group and leaders. Throughout the retreat, students compete in team competitions, worship, pray, reflect and engage with God in a way that fast-tracks your relationship with Him. You don’t want to miss this retreat – August 5-8, 2021!

Registration is now full. Click below to get on the wait list.
