Youth Retreats

Middle School RetreatCamp Johnsonburg leads a series of programmed retreats and events every year. You provide the youth and chaperons, we provide the program, leadership, and music! Many youth leaders love knowing they can take their kids away for a retreat experience without having to do all of the planning. Johnsonburg retreats are also an excellent opportunity for your youth to connect with youth from other areas. In addition to the program, each retreat also includes seasonally appropriate opportunities to participate in various camp activities like the zip line, boating, and many more.

Youth Retreats have a two-tier pricing system:

  • Tier I: $110
  • Tier II: $125

Realizing that everyone has a different ability to pay, Johnsonburg Presbyterian Center has instituted a voluntary two-tier fee program. You may choose the tier that is most sustainable to your situation. It is really a free will system; you tell us what is affordable for you. All participants receive the same retreat experience no matter what they pay!
