Travel & Housing
Each room in the retreat center has a bed, whether a single bed or a bunk bed. There is no A/C in the sleeping quarters but there is in a couple of common areas.
You will fly into St. George airport (GND). We will stay in Grenville, about an hour north of St. George. We aim to have all buses air-conditioned. There will be a CHWC representative to pick up all campers from the airport and ride the bus with them to the retreat center.
We will work alongside local nuns and priests, work with a home for the disabled, an orphanage, local school, Catholic Church, home for the elderly and local residents of the community. Amongst the beauty on the island, there is much need.
There is an included free day on Sunday, June 7th. We will have orientation, celebrate mass, BBQ and spend some time on one of the many beautiful beaches. Local youth group students will also meet us there with games and music.
There is also an optional extra free day available on June 12th, which would push your departure to June 13th. For the extra free day, you will have the opportunity to take a boat ride, see the beaches, and snorkel at an underwater sculpture park, a must see! The cost is $150 in addition to the registration fee. The price will include your transportation, accommodations, and meals.
If you are interested in staying for the extra free day, more information on signing up will be sent to you after you register for the week of camp!
