Youth retreats made easy!


Spend some time in SoCe!  Bring your youth group for a 1-5 days of spiritual formation, hands on service, and curriculum for applying your learning at home.  In SoCe your group will discern what it means to be a spiritual leader in a real context.  They will practicing being a good neighbor and as a group create a plan for what to do when they return home.  

All the Details

When: Youth Trips can be scheduled around your calendar.  A good time frame might be Friday evening through Sunday noon.

Who: Minimum of 6 students and at least 1 sponsor for every 5 youth. Students must be through their first year of middle school. 

Where: Students will stay at the SoCe Bunkhouse just south of downtown Wichita.  Groups larger than 8 will be accommodated at local churches.  

Cost: Trips that are one weekend (Friday evening-Sunday noon) cost $150/person.  Included in the cost is lodging, meals, teaching, and curriculum.  

What: The Youth Trips will look similar to the Undergrad Immersions only tailored for a high school student.  We will also offer strategies for connecting the learning when the students re-enter their own context.
