Jr. High Retreat


JR. HIGH RETREAT (6th Grade – 8th Grade) 




JR HIGH RETREAT 2018 will explore our theme “God Connects” in large group sessions, small group discussions and through activities. We will have time for mission outreach, raising money for scholarships and youth-led mission projects, playing wacky games and singing crazy songs as well as just spending time together! All are welcome - invite your friends!!


When:  April 20th - 22nd, 2018

Where: Billings Shiloh UMC

Cost for the event is $40 if registered by April 16th and increases to $75 if registered after the early deadline.




PLEASE REGISTER ON TIME!  (Late registrations make it very difficult to plan for enough volunteers, sleeping space and food). 

Registrations must be paid in full prior to the event.

If you need to pay by check, please mail a copy of the registration with your payment to the Conference Office... OR give your online registration confirmation to your church to send in with a scholarship check.

Checks must be made out to "Yellowstone Conference" noting Jr High Retreat and the registrant's name in the memo...
