Faith and Science Retreat

Outdoor Education from a Catholic perspective.

The holistic curriculum of a Faith and Science retreat immerses students in the beauty of the natural world and invites them to encounter its Creator. Hands-on lessons make learning standards come alive, and young people are invited deeper into relationship with God.

Interactive Lesson Content

Our trained staff teach 6th-grade level lessons developed from State of Ohio science education standards.

  • Interpretive Hike & Forestry

  • Leave No Trace Principles

  • Orienteering

  • Physics

  • Aquatics (Stream and Pond Ecology)

  • Night Lesson

  • Geology

  • Wilderness Survival

Our 471-acre campus offers plenty of outdoor learning environments to explore, while experiential learning goes to the next level with High-Adventure Activities: Giant Swing and Rock Wall!

An Environment of Encounter

Permeating every aspect of the retreat is the message of the Gospel: Jesus Christ restores what was wounded by the Fall.

  • Lessons reinforce key connections to the saints and scripture

  • Prayer Lab introduces students to praying with Scripture through the practice of lectio divina

  • Focused sessions of talks, worship and prayer invite students to grow in relationship with God and understanding of themselves

  • Missionary-led small groups promote discussion and accountability

The retreat culminates with an opportunity for Eucharistic Adoration.
