Campus Ministry is committed to advancing the spiritual lives of all JSerra students. One of the best ways that this is accomplished is through the dynamic, moving, and insanely fun retreats. Retreats are designed for each grade level and are optional. Every student has at least two choices annually: to attend a retreat in the fall or in the spring (depending on what works best in their schedule).

Although retreats are not mandatory, they continue to be very popular with over one-third of the student body attending each year. They are designed to be places of friendly community, and are open to students of all faith backgrounds or those with no religious preference. Each retreat is off-campus at one of two beautiful retreat centers, and offering stunning amenities such as swimming pools, water slides, challenges courses, game rooms, coffee shops, and more!

As a student progresses from freshman to senior year, the retreats grow steadily in their depth and various activities. Themes include building a relationship with God for freshmen, the story of the Prodigal Son for sophomores, the life of St. Paul for juniors, and the Senior Kairos. Campus Ministers and other JSerra faculty prepare and work to make the themes relatable to students — leading games, singing songs, and giving personal witness to their own faith. Every student should put a retreat on their calendar, round up their friends to join them, and come find out why retreats are such a vital piece of the JSerra experience!
