Black Butte Retreat


    This year’s high school retreat is coming up on the weekend of October 24-26, and once again, we’ll be spending our weekend together at the Stoltzfus family cabin near Black Butte, enjoying homemade food, a hike to the top of the Butte, swimming, laughter, adventure.

    Please bring layers, a warm jacket, and appropriate footwear (with extra socks), as Saturday’s hike may involve snow. Pay attention to the packing list below, as you are preparing for our weekend together in Central Oregon.
