Blizzard

blizzardThis amazing CBOQ winter retreat is always a blast for our SR High Students (Grades 9-12).  Each year, hundreds of SR High Students all over the Province go in anticipation of having fun and connecting with God.  Hosted up in Muskoka Woods Sports Resort, teens get a chance remove themselves from all the distractions of life and experience God in new ways through a keynote speaker, a live band, small groups, devotional times, over a dozen of fun electives, breathtaking scenery and more!

What does this amazing opportunity cost you ask?  It cost about $200 per student … well sort of.  You see, we REALLY believe in the experiences that this retreat offers, so we make it available to anyone who wants to go.  All it takes is a little bit of elbow grease and participation on the student’s part.  They put in their time, and collectively raise all the funds needed to go. So, the experiences that this retreat brings starts long before the actual date of the retreat.  In fact, the experience starts in the fall as the students rally together for a united purpose and goes right to the end of February when they get to share their experiences with those who supported them!
