Confirmation retreats

 Each year, the Historic MACUCC in conjunction with the Southern New England Conference offers a series of retreats for the youth classes of churches in the Massachusetts as well as other NE states.  

Join with other  UCC 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.

The cost is all inclusive; overnight accommodations, breakfast and lunch, snacks, materials, and SNEUCC 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 2020-2021 program year will only increase by $5.00 to $145.00 per person  Registration is online only.  No exceptions

To help with early registration, we are requiring a deposit of only $145 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. 


2020-2021 Dates TBA

Registration for fall and 2021 retreats will be delayed until Covid-19 restrictions, orders and protocols are determined by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in conjunction with the local boards of health and the SNEUCC.

Before you register for any of our retreats be sure you have read and can abide by the
 the SNEUCC Safe Church policy regarding adult leaders at overnight youth events.
