Best place for college retreatOne of the most formative experiences in a person's life is college. There is a common notion that this is a point in a person's life when they should abandon their faith and possibly walk away entirely. For many young adults, though, it is a moment when their faith grows stronger, and their theology takes hold.

Those who get active in college ministry go through a period of growth and discipleship. If you're in charge of a college ministry, you've probably seen a lot of students grow spiritually. 

The difficulty is that you only have your students for a certain amount of time: usually two to four years. Finding ways to create community is critical to maximizing the value of the retreat experience.

Hosting a college ministry retreat is a great way to help spark relationships. High Peak Camp is the ideal college ministry retreat center. It is convenient to many colleges and universities in the state and situated in a beautiful setting.
