What is Sr. High Retreat?
This is a spiritual retreat for 9th-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 Alexandrea). 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.

Cost: The cost of the event is $110 before Feb. 25th and then the price jumps up to $140. This includes transportation, food while at the conference center, activities, supplies, and lodging. Teens will be responsible for paying for one meal on the way there and for pie on the way home (pie is optional). Please see "Trip Info" below for suggested spending money to bring.

Partial and full 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.  If you would like more information on scholarships or about the retreat
, feel free to contact the AYM Dept. by emailing Kyle (AYM Youth Minister) or by telephone (337-456-6098)

We will meet at Asbury United Methodist Church (look for the 15 passenger vans) at 5:45 pm on the Friday of the retreat and grab some grub (Dutch treat) on the way up. Meals will be provided all day Saturday through lunch on Sunday. Then we will head to Lea's Lunch Room for pie (Dutch treat again) on the way home! We should be back around 2:30 pm on Sunday. We'll get the kids to call parents when we are an hour out. The only spending money the teens will need will be for food on the way up and optional pie on the way back ($20 should work). They CAN bring more cash than that for spending money in the YSF store at the retreat (see below).
