The CROSS Retreat

A weekend retreat for high school age youth (grades 9-12 only) planned and conducted by their peers. Cost is $70 per person with limited scholarship assistance available. Groups of four or more should come with at least one qualified adult chaperone (over age 21)

The CROSS Retreat is conducted at Springville Camp and Conference Center located in the  mountains outside Springville Alabama. The camp has comfortable group cabins with bunk beds, carpeting and air-conditioning. Delicious meals are served in the camp dining hall. We have been using Springville Camp and Conference Center for over ten years and no young person has ever complained about the food (hard to believe isn't it?).
