This is a spiritual retreat for 9th and 12th graders put on by the Louisiana Conference of the United Methodist Church. It will be held at the Wesley Center in Woodworth Louisiana (just south of Alexandria). We always take a large group and it's always been an amazing experience. Come discover more about God and yourself and have a blast in the process while meeting other Christian teenagers from all over Louisiana! Register soon because it WILL fill up before the deadline!
The cost of the event is $115. The cost will rise to $145 after the deadline set by the Conference (TBD), so register ASAP.
Scholarships are readily available for those in need, please don't let difficult financial times keep you or your child from attending this life-changing event.

We will meet at Asbury in the Youth Café at 5:00pm. We will load up the luggage into 15 passenger vans, pray, and head out shortly after. All meals on Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday will be provided. The only two things the youth will need to pay for is dinner on the way up on Friday and dessert on the way home on Sunday. $15 should cover both. There will also be snack machines at the Wesley Center, where we are staying, a YSF store at the retreat where the youth can purchase items that range from a slap bracelet for .50 cents to a hoodie for $30, and a YSF Auction where the group typically pools their money together to purchase items. Feel free to bring extra spending money for those things, but know that Asbury and the LA Annual Conference are not responsible for lost or stolen items or money. Electronic devices and phones are allowed but with the same warning. Take care of your stuff! We do go outside a good bit and will have worship outside on Saturday night, so watch the weather and pack appropriately. We should return to Asbury around 3:00pm but we will contact parents if we are held up at any point or will arrive earlier than anticipated.
