You should come!

For all Middle School & High School students and their families.


Ski Retreat is one of E-Free Youth’s capstone events of the year, and it’s always a blast! We stay at Schweitzer Chapel at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, which has plenty of room for our large group of families and students.

Who should come? All students in 6th-12th grade, as well as their families. Elementary and below need to be accompanied by a parent.

Each year, we have plenty of individual students who come, as well as several families. Some ski the whole time, while others take part in planned activities and rest time at the chapel. Each evening, we come together for worship and time in the Word.

Families who come are encouraged to plan a meal (or more!), which helps bring your costs down! (see Discounts under Cost breakdown). We hope you can make this exciting and growing weekend!
