Details: On this Memorial Day weekend, we will host two retreats at one location! Our SCYL teens (13-17) will gather
with the young adult Transitions group (18-30). Some activities will be together, such as meals and recreation,
some activities will be separate, like sessions and sleeping arrangements.
Bring a sleeping bag (if you are not flying), PJs, towel, personal items, musical instruments, and a friend!
At our retreats we offer life skills and spiritual sessions based on the principles of the Swedenborgian
Church. We strive for a safe, secure and inclusive environment to discuss and share relevant and
meaningful ideas that help with challenges youth and young adults face today. We work, play, craft and
learn together as a community. We have fun! See you there!
2023 Theme: Building Daily Building
Many Swedenborgians of all ages know the Building Daily Building hymn. It is a favorite
at our camps as well as in many of our churches. At this retreat we will explore the meaning of the lyrics
of this famous song through discussions and workshops. We will seek to discover methods to improve
personal and community spiritual building as we also work on building up the Almont Retreat Center
through projects highlighted by the facilities manager. We will draw on the teachings and theology of
Emanual Swedenborg to help us along the way. I’m sure we’ll all benefit from the lively discussions and
