Where and When

The program will be held immediately before the FGC Gathering at the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota on Saturday, July 2.  You may order cafeteria meals beginning with dinner on Friday July 1 through lunch on Sunday July 3.  Friends are encouraged to arrive Friday since the retreat is all day Saturday.

Cost

Details will be posted in February. Participants will need to pay for early housing and meals.

Childcare Is Available

If you are a young adult with children eighth grade or younger, childcare is available for the retreat.  You will only need to pay for housing and meals for your child.  Read more about childcare for pre-Gathering events.

How to Register

When you register for the Gathering, choose the “AYF Retreat.”  Choose early housing (Friday or Saturday nights) to match your housing for the full Gathering.  Select which meals you want in addition to the Gathering meal plan.  The Gathering meal plan will not begin until Sunday supper, July 3.

Registration for the FGC Gathering opens April 1.

Scholarships

You may add a scholarship request for the AYF Retreat on top of the described maximum scholarship.  Registrants may request a scholarship from FGC for up to half of the retreat costs (housing, meals, and retreat fee).

Request a scholarship when you register for the Gathering.
