Fall Youth Retreats
Quest, Breakaway and Crossing are the fall retreats for youth groups that take place at Trout Lake Camps in central Minnesota. Quest is for Middle School, Breakaway is for Senior High, and Crossing is for both Middle and High School students. Each retreat is designed to be evangelistic in nature, meaning that the gospel will be clearly presented during the weekend and students will be given the opportunity to respond. Activities are designed so that non-church kids feel completely comfortable and have a blast! Students register for and attend this retreat with their youth group. It's a great opportunity for kids to become familiar with other students and leaders in their group.
From the speaker, to worship, to the activities it is a great way to kick-off your fall ministry at church.

***NEW PRIORITY REGISTRATION FOR RETURNING GROUPS ONLY
– Monday, Sept. 6 Opens at 9:00 a.m. We are rewarding the loyalty of returning fall retreat groups by allowing returning groups to register fall retreat weekends in a new Priority Registration window.
If your church group attended Fall Retreats at Trout last fall, then your church group is eligible for priority registration. Please contact Danielle Freiermuth (danielle@TroutCamps.org) immediately to see current availability for our Fall Youth Retreat weekends. This will allow you to secure your spot for your church without the risk of the weekend being sold-out. One week prior to the priority registration window, you will be emailed a unique registration link to register your group in that priority window. That link will not be active until the priority access window – Monday, Sept. 6th 9:00 am and will cease working after the priority window has ended – Thursday, Sept. 9th 9:00 am.
IMPORTANT: Priority Registration Groups still need to register their group during the priority registration window AND secured their registration with payment between Sept 6th 9:00 am and September 9th by 9:00 am 2021. Without a confirmed registration with payment during the priority registration window, your reserved spaces for church will be released to general registration.
Quest retreats are designed for Junior High students, Breakaway is designed for Senior High students, and Crossing is designed for both Junior & Senior High students. 9th grade students should attend whichever youth group they are a part of in your church.
