A few things to ask

What are the age ranges for each retreat?

Here are the grade options we have used for our retreats.  It is up to group leaders to determine if their youth in grade 9 are more suited for the junior retreat or the senior retreat.

Senior High Retreat – Grades 9-12

Junior High Retreat – Grades 7-9
