Inviting all youth pastors and youth directors to bring their spouse on a two day, two night whitewater escape!
Couples Retreat for Youth Pastors
You always invest in your youth, now it’s time to invest in yourself and your marriage. We recognize the sometimes suffocating challenge of maintaining both a healthy marriage and a prosperous youth ministry. We want this getaway to give your most important earthly relationship a breath of fresh air.
Join us at Rock-N-Water Christian Camps riverside camp in Coloma, California for a weekend retreat unlike any other.
A Marriage Retreat unlike any other
Thursday night you’ll get settled in and get to meet with other youth ministry couples before bedding down for the night (Friday morning arrivals are an option if you live closer).
On Friday morning after breakfast get in some couple time alone (there are some great hikes from camp and locally) or join in on some fun and games with other youth ministry couples. We will have lunch before going whitewater rafting down a 10 mile stretch of the South Fork of the American River (Class III). Upon returning to camp, you’ll enjoy an elegant outdoor dinner followed by a time of worship and devotion as we gather around the campfire and focus on how to encourage and nurture your marriage relationships.
After another romantic night in your sleeping bags, we’ll have a hot breakfast waiting for you before we jump on the river for a second day of whitewater rafting on a different section of the river. We’ll have lunch alongside the river before making it back to camp where we will say farewell to our new-found friends.
This is not a joke. There is no catch.
First, this trip is a gift for those whose marriages are seasonally challenged by year round youth ministry. It is our hope that Rock-N-Water might be used to help strengthen your critically important relationship.
Secondly, this trip is an investment in your ministry. We hope that your time with us will inspire you to take your students out into the outdoors more often – maybe even to a Rock-N-Water Christian Camp.
