To know, serve and have fellowship in Christ.
Saint Sophia’s Retreats offers a Christ centered environment for young women seeking to pursue a life pleasing to God; an environment rich in natural beauty with the fellowship of like-minded souls eager to support one another in their striving to know Christ and develop their God given talents.
During the course of the week all activities are woven together to offer a well rounded experience. Daily activities are structured to inspire young women to return home with a deeper understanding of who they are, and to live life more purposefully. Workshops and activities are fun, invigorating and educational in a hands on approach. Campers participate in activities that may include: ropes course, volleyball, archery, swimming, music, drama, dance, iconography, animal husbandry, and arts and crafts.
While the days are packed full of adventure the retreats are centered around morning and evening prayers. During meal times stories are read about Christian Saints who have lived powerful lives for the sake of Jesus Christ. All week long a service project is developed, then taken into the senior community at the end of camp. The time spent together is an experience of living in Christian Community with sisters who are pursuing a common goal.
