The Rocky Mountain Conference United Church of Christ hosts...
|"In the RMC, we feel that nurturing faith is of the utmost importance. Our Conference Camps & Events serve the Conference mission to Be Radically Connected. Our weekend retreats and summer camps are typically hosted at La Foret Conference & Retreat Center. |

|MADD Camp |
July 14 - 20 2019
(entering grades 9-12)
Our theory at Music, Art, Dance, and Drama (MADD) Camp is that we can get in touch with God through the arts; however, all artistic skill-levels are present and welcome at MADD Camp. Along with engaging the youth in intellectual faith conversations, we attempt to get them “out of their heads” and into experiencing the transcendent through creativity, nature, friendships, self-discovery, games, activities, and LOTS of fun. We find these moments to be the most powerful in helping young people to develop a lifelong faith.
July 14 - 20, 2019
At Contemplative Camp, we begin and end the day in silence, a celebration of the Mystery beyond. Each day includes a book discussion on classics like An Altar in the World, the labyrinth, diverse practices, swimming, laughter, and love. Through ordinary spirituality, we seek the presence of God.
La Foret accommodations presume multiple guests in each room. There are limited single rooms available for people with special circumstances. The registration cost for these single rooms is $585, and they are first-come, first-served.
|Fall Youth Retreat|
November 1 - 3, 2019
The Fall Jr/Sr-High Retreat, like the spring retreat, is a vital place for Junior- and Senior-High Youth to build an amazing community! Along with games, songs, dancing, and profound discussion, youth will also be able to discuss their faith, explore profound questions, develop their beliefs and values, and make new lifelong friendships. We invite parents to register their youth for this transformational weekend!
