Youth Immersions/Retreats

Immersion experiences are offered as a way for youth to be immersed in rest, education, and action. Through retreats, walks for justice, and educational opportunities around social justice and faith, youth will have various opportunities to discover how faith can be more fully integrated into the routine of our lives. All immersions are open to all youth in 7th-12th grades unless explicitly stated.

Continue to check back for up to date information about costs, sign up dates, deadlines, registration forms and other details. If any youth is in need of a scholarship we do have them available, please email the Director of Youth Ministries, Jay Campbell at jcampbell@fairfaxumc.org to ask about scholarships. We want all youth who are interested to be able to go!
