Every year, students from around Ontario gather for a four-day weekend retreat where students are rejuvenated in their spiritual walk, and build lifelong friendships while building up the ACF network. This retreat has been occurring for over 20 years! The weekend features a student-led service of dynamic preaching, powerful testimonies and uplifting praise & worship. Meals are deliciously prepared onsite while there are also workshops and free activity times. By the end of their retreat, students are not only closer to Christ, but they leave the retreat with a renewed commitment to serving God with everything they have on their public campuses. Our mission of building, engaging and empowering chapters on campus are attained realized through this annual retreat.
