Confirmation retreats


 Each year, the Massachusetts Conference offers a series of retreats for the youth classes of churches in the Massachusetts Conference as well as other NE states.  

Join with other churches to experience a spiritually rewarding, faith-filled weekend as part of your local Confirmation program.  Conference sponsored retreats have routinely filled and space is limited.

Early, early, early; this is the key word for registration. Conference sponsored retreats have routinely filled and space is limited at both locations, particularly Craigville.

Registration for the 2019-2020 program year began June 15, 2019.   To help with early registration, we are requiring a deposit of only $140 of your expected total due. No spaces will be held without a deposit and a tentative count of participants. The final count as well as payment and all paperwork will be required about 7-10 days prior to the retreat date.  Please try to realistically estimate who will actually attend when you register.  If you overbook, it prevents others from attending and if you under book we may not have enough space for your group. The Conference reserves the right to cancel a retreat if a minimum number of participants is not met. Each facility has different capacities and we will advise churches of a cancellation as soon as it is possible. 

The cost is all inclusive; overnight accommodations, breakfast and lunch, snacks, materials, and MACUCC facilitator stipends and their travel expenses.  Although our expenses have increased over the last several years to provide a quality program for Confirmation youth and their leaders, our fee for the 2019-2020 program year will only increase by $5.00 to $140.00 per person  Registration is online only.  No exceptions.
