Event description

YFC Canada offers guided spiritual retreats at Honeymoon Bay Lodge & Retreat, located on Vancouver Island. The emphasis of our retreats is on rest, reflection and refocusing, providing space for these according to the specific needs of each staff person.

YFC Canada is committed to becoming an organization that is characterized by healthy and resilient staff and this is a step in that direction!

You don’t have to be in crisis to join us for these retreats! In fact, our hope is that regular times of rest and reflection in this way will become a normal part of the way we operate.

We invite anyone and everyone in our YFC family to join us – come and let God meet you wherever you’re at!
