Spring Middle School Youth Event (CYE) - "Why?"

May 15-17, 2015 at Pilgrim Point Camps & Retreats

An excellent opportunity for confirmation classes, middle school youth groups, and middle school youth from your church to deepen their faith and connect with others.

Bring questions about life, faith and your world. We will spend the weekend sharing together our “Why?” questions, offering possible answers we have heard, and finding ways to be at peace when simple answers to our questions cannot be found.

Environmental Justice Training

May 27-29, 2015 at Pilgrim Point Camps & Retreats

How can people of faith work for environmental justice for all? How can we create Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.'s beloved community - one that is sustainable, healthy and inclusive? This train-the-trainer workshop will explore these questions with the goal of empowering conversation and actions around environmental justice that will continue far beyond the initial workshop.
