Leadership Retreat

The call to leadership is first a call to discipleship.

A series of cooperative initiatives challenge students to grow in virtue, problem-solving, and communication, while looking to Jesus as model and teacher.

A world-class leadership curriculum.

Our trained staff guide students through courses that have been developed in partnership with nationally recognized adventure leadership institute, Phoenix Experiential Designs. Key retreat sessions include:

  • High Ropes Course

  • Low Ropes Courses

  • Scavenger Hunt

  • Survival Simulation

  • Archery Tag

Missionary-led small groups help students grow in understanding of themselves and one another with opportunities to affirm strengths, overcome weaknesses, and improve teamwork throughout each course.

Sent forth on mission.

In times of lectio divina and focused sessions of talks, prayer, and worship, students engage with the story of the first disciples. Like St. Peter and St. Andrew, they are are invited to give their own “yes” to following Jesus and through Him, to make an impact on the world.

The retreat culminates with an opportunity for Eucharistic Adoration.
