Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the content of each retreat program?

Please explore our programs on this page to see details for each retreat.

Which retreat(s) should I choose?

Damascus exists to bring revival to the Catholic Church in America. Our vision is deep partnerships with schools and parishes in which students can have successive experiences that invite them further in their relationship with Christ, and bring lasting transformation to the culture of the school and parish. With that in mind, our programs are designed for specific developmental levels which a student can experience in sequence:

Faith and Science: 6th grade
Leadership: 7th grade
Confirmation: 8th grade
Abundant Life: High School Underclassmen
Made for More: High School Upperclassmen

How much does a retreat cost?

Middle School retreats are $120/person.

High School retreats are $150/person.

One chaperone comes free.

How much is the deposit?

Less than 50 participants: $300

50-100 participants: $500

100+ participants: $700
