Retreat Weekends

UrbanPromise is excited to offer a new opportunity to groups interested in urban ministry! This year, we’re hosting two retreats for middle and high school youth where students will experience a blend of ministry outreach, team-building activities, and group discussions around the challenges faced by urban communities. Just bring your youth and chaperones-we’ll provide everything else!

$90 per participant. Deposit of 50% is due one month prior to the trip and to be paid in full upon arrival. 


UrbanPromise will provide all meals and housing; all we ask is that you bring your own bedding.  


Group Discussion: your youth will be engaged in faith-based discussions with Christian leaders within the UrbanPromise community.

Community Outreach: UrbanPromise offers a unique opportunity for your youth to engage in service opportunities on our campus or at one of our camp sites.  Projects range from: tutoring, leading creative activities, painting, or building repair.
