Students in 6th grade through 12th grade are all invited to participate in St. Luke’s Youth Group! I believe that youth group provides a safe and fun environment for youth to build healthy relationships, practice good communication, learn more about themselves and their faith, relax, and play games. The Youth Group will go on two youth retreats a year with the Episcopal Diocese, plan and complete service projects, go on outings, and participate in summer mission trips.

Dates: October 25-27

Theme: #blessed Join other Episcopal youth from all over Colorado to explore what it means to receive God’s blessing and carry it into the world to give it to others.

About: Quest youth retreats help our young people, grades 6-12, grow deeper in their relationship with God. Quest incorporates general sessions led by entertaining and powerful speakers, interactive small group time, an engaging band, and plenty of community-building activities to help foster spiritual growth throughout the weekend and beyond. No two Quest events are the same. Youth are encouraged to explore, ask questions, and dive into each theme in hope that the weekend will help them grow individually in their faith and corporately as a member within the Church.

Cost: Early bird: $165

          After September 25: $180

         Scholarships Available!

Adults: Adult-Child ratio for the weekend is 1:6 of the same gender

Work Crew: Adults (over 18) who come for the weekend to help the staff of Frontier Ranch with meals and other tasks. Attendance is free, and we will need one work crew member for every ten people we bring.
