True peace and reflection is increasingly difficult in today’s modern world. With the distractions of social media, our busy schedules, and the pressures of today, the increasing “noise” can keep us and our children from hearing God’s voice.
The NSYR reports that young people are interested in a genuine experience of the transcendent and in a faith that relates to their daily lives.
“Time in nature is not leisure time; it's an essential investment in our children's health (and also, by the way, in our own).” ― Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder
“While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.” ― St. Francis of Assisi
“…To find room in our cultural context for the encounter with Christ, with Christian life and with the life of faith is very difficult. Young people are in great need of support to really be able to find this path." ― Feb. 22, 2007 / Pope Benedict XVI
Let us provide your family, parish, or youth group with the perfect natural outdoor setting to relax, unwind, and reconnect with each other and God. Research tells us that the need for youth ministries to provide opportunities for Catholic youth to connect with their faith in a real and engaging way is staggering.
