What is Jr. High Retreat? 

This is a spiritual retreat for 7th and 8th graders put on by the Louisiana Conference of the United Methodist Church. It will be held at the Wesley Center in Woodworth Louisiana (just south of Alexandria). We always take a large group and it's always been an amazing experience. Come discover more about God and yourself and have a blast in the process while meeting other Christian teenagers from all over Louisiana! Register soon because it WILL fill up before the deadline!

Cost: The cost of the event is $100. This includes transportation, food while at the conference center, activities, supplies, and lodging. Teens will be responsible for paying one meal on the way there and for pie on the way home (optional). Please see "Trip Info" below for suggested spending money to bring.

Scholarships are readily available for those in need, please don't let difficult financial times keep you or your child from attending this life-changing event.  If you would like more information on scholarships or about the retreat
, feel free to contact the AYM Dept. by emailing Kyle (AYM Youth Minister) or by telephone (337-456-6098)

Registration Deadline is October 22th!

We will meet at Asbury United Methodist Church (look for the 15 passenger vans) at 5:45 pm on the Friday of the retreat and grab some grub on the way up. Meals will be provided all day Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. Then we will grab some lunch (and pies) at Lea's Lunch Room on the way home. We should be back around 2:30 pm on Sunday. We'll get the kids to call parents when we are an hour out. The only spending money the teens will need will be for food on the way up and back ($30 should work) and for the YSF store (optional) which sells t shirts, candy, necklaces and other items (prices range from $0.50 for candy to $30 for a hoodie). Bath towels and bed linens are provided for you! Most of the rooms have double beds. If you are uncomfortable sharing a bed with another person, you may want to bring an air mattress, pillow, and sleeping bag or bed linens. Here's what else to bring:
