Youth Retreats

Deadline: 
March 09, 2020

Upcoming Retreat: April 24-26, 2020 at Zajac Ranch in Mission, BC.

About Retreats (SCMs, or Steering Committee Meetings)

Our retreats bring youth in and from care from all across the province together to learn life skills, have fun, build lasting friendships, direct the work of the organization, contribute to government consultations, and build a provincial community.

Come out and see what we are all about!

If you are a young person between the ages of 14 and 24 who has experienced some form of government care (including experience with child and youth mental health services, addiction facilities, custody centres, extended family placements, Community Living BC programs, or homelessness) our camps are for you! 

Our camps create a fun, safe environment where you can connect with other young people who are building a provincial network for youth in and from care.

Great Times, Amazing Memories

Fed retreats are held at recreational outdoor camps across the province several times a year. Many of our participants come back year after year and for them, the experience is much more than just a camp.
