Retreats & Events
From three hours to three weeks in length, we are available to help you design a program to meet the most specific needs of your group. Whether they are all new students who need to get acquainted, or graduating seniors with whom you’ve walked for years, we have ideas for transformational experience.
Sample Custom Programs
Bellefield Fall Retreat
100 students from a large fellowship group go car camping at peak fall foliage season in West Virginia for the weekend. Friday night is devoted to a big welcome and mingling activities. Saturday, students have the choice of canoeing, rafting, rock climbing, caving or hiking. In the evening, students enjoy large-group fun and a bonfire with s’mores. Sunday is a unique, full-participation worship service, taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings.
Women’s Spring Break Trip
Designed around the theme of body image, 10 women from Ohio Wesleyan University travel with their campus minister and CCO XD resource staff member Kelly Ozelski to Cumberland Island, Georgia. As they encounter the beauty of who they are and what their bodies are capable of through backpacking, they experience inner healing and learn to celebrate all the ways God has made them, fearfully and wonderfully.
“I brought in CCO XD to work with the high school soccer team that I coached. My players not only loved the experience, but it helped them to think about what it is to be a team in a different way. They ask every year for XD to come back.”
—Vince Burens, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the CCO
