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!

Join us for a winter weekend and experience fun activities like our climbing wall, snowtubing, broomball, horseback trail rides, laser tag, and much more!

The Impact Of Retreats

"It's incredibly important to bring kids on a retreat because it gives them a chance to open up and hear the message of Christ."

-Winter Blast Leader

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!
