Confirmation Day of Reflection Fall: October 27, 2019, 9:30am-5pm Winter: February 1, 2020, 9:30am-5pm
"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."~ Jeremiah 29:10-12
CYO Camp Rancho Framasa’s Confirmation Day of Reflection is open to all Jr. high and Sr. High Confirmation Students. The day mixes catechesis, witness talks and activities which are designed to provide an encounter with Jesus as youth prepare for Confirmation. Both dates have the same programming.
Camp staff will facilitate and chaperone the entire event. Parents/Youth Ministers are welcome to drop their children off and spend the day in Nashville or return in the afternoon to pick up their participant.
The afternoon rotations will be divided among age groups. While there is a significant developmental age range between Jr. High and Sr. High students, the activities have been selected because of the ability to process them in several ways to adapt each age group.
Fee: $20, includes lunch. Participants may register individually or as a group. Registration will close at 100 participants.
“The community of believers was of one heart and one mind” ~ Acts
Confirmation 1: When Jesus first started his ministry he called his disciples from all over the place. Do you ever feel like your youth are from all over the place? This retreat was designed for a confirmation class of youth who might not know each other well or at all. Prior to confirmation sessions we take time engaging participants in “get to know you” activities. Our goal is to develop community within the group. These activities allow youth to feel more comfortable sharing their faith and are in turn more open to learning about their faith and confirmation.
Confirmation 2: If the youth in your confirmation group already know each other and are ready for a retreat focused on faith formation then this retreat may be the one for them. The retreat starts with fun activities and talks to get youth comfortable, but then dives right into the heart of confirmation. Like all our retreats, we customize this retreat to focus on topics that compliment your program the most.
Retreat programs are available August to May; they are one, two, or three days in length. All programming is customized to your group. Activities are selected by you from a menu of options. Faith programming that meets your group's needs can be incorporated into your trip.
