Michigan Winter Youth Group Retreats

Experience a group-changing weekend at Grace Adventures in West Michigan. This isn't your ordinary winter retreat. Grace provides a distinctive experience by removing the responsibility of planning and running a youth retreat and allows youth pastors to connect and disciple their students. Let us take care of the scheduling, cooking, and speaking so that your youth group can have fun and grow closer together and to God!

Blast Theme:

From 90’s fashion to challenges in school, there’s nothing new under the sun. There are both good and difficult seasons in life. In God’s big picture, they are all temporary, but His kingdom is eternal. We will dig deeper into common struggles and how, in the midst of them all, God is still faithful.

Be Equipped IN Your Faith

Through dynamic large group club sessions with Biblically based speakers and worship centered bands, your students will be introduced to a relationship with Jesus and challenged to go deeper. In small group discussion, you get the opportunity to follow up, answer questions and dig into what faith looks like in everyday life.

Have A Blast!

Themed events, games and tournaments will give your group a chance to compete together and against others while working as a team. During free time relax around the fire with a board game or chose one of our many activities such as horseback rides, laser tag, tubing hill, broomball, and climbing tower. No matter the weather we’ll have something fun going on!

"Having a weekend dedicated to God is something unique and I would dare to say foundational in today's world. Days move fast, technology makes them move faster. Having time that has been prayed for, planned, and executed in the name of God is a vital reset.

Grace Adventures has been an incredible partner with my youth group for the last several years. We are a high-energy group that loves lots of flexibility and options. Grace Adventures has come alongside us to curate amazing weekends that work specifically to our group's needs. I am so thankful for this facility and their great staff and will always love working with them."
- Leader, Grace Community Church
