BREAKAWAY FALL RETREAT
A Retreat for High School Students & Recent Grads (12-17 years)
SEPTEMEBER 22 - 24, 2023
Breakaway Fall Retreat is an annual retreat that takes place on Lake Wallace at Frontier Lodge Christian Youth Camp. Our ambition and idea behind this retreat is all about uniting Young People to expose them to God’s Love, his creation & other people that are excited about Jesus.
The idea of the name Breakaway comes from the passage Mark 1:35 & Luke 5:16. Jesus understood the importance of getting away and spending time alone with God. Our desire is that you get away from the busyness of life, school, work & what the world deems important and join us for Christ-centred Weekend. Where we focus our attention on God & realign & relight the passion in life that Jesus desires us to live.
If you are a teen between the ages of 12 and 17 then this retreat is for you!! If you are older, we are always looking for volunteers, because it takes a lot of great people to pull off an amazing Fall Retreat!
Friday Check-in 7:30-8:30pm
Sunday Check-out 1-1:30pm

Kelly is the Youth and Young Adults pastor at Westside Gathering In Montreal. Prior to his current role, he and his wife have served in various ministries within a francophone church context in Montreal. Kelly has served in youth ministry for many years and is passionate to see teens and young adults become on fire for Jesus. Outside of ministry, he enjoys building Lego sets, coop boardgames (or competitive), and sitting with friends around a fire and having a good time.
Kelly will challenge you with the big question “If God is so loving why is there suffering in the world?” These questions will sometimes be difficult to answer when others challenge us with those questions. In this workshop you will be guided from an apologetics approach, you will learn how to navigate and dialogue with others and learn how to respond in those situations.
