Travel & Housing
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.
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.
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 will be on Sunday. We will have orientation, celebrate mass and then 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 free day available to snorkel the beautiful waters and underwater sculpture park, a must see! The cost is $150 in addition to the registration fee. The price will include your transportation, accommodations and food.
