As a youth leader, one of your responsibilities may be planning a retreat for your youth group. Retreats are important for young people because they provide an opportunity for students to put away their smartphones and focus their attention on connecting with like-minded peers and on developing a stronger relationship with Christ.

The word “retreat” means “To withdraw to a quiet or secluded place.” Today’s youth are busier than ever before, participating in multiple sports or extracurricular activities, spending many hours a week studying and completing schoolwork, and keeping up with their social calendars or family demands. As a result, taking time away from the stressors of everyday life is necessary.
