Our CBOQ Youth flagship retreats approach their 22nd year. Last year was our first ever fully online retreat experience. We were amazed at how God continues to bring his message of hope through these new channels for us.

Many have been asking, “What will Avalanche and Blizzard look like this January/February 2022?”

We are excited to confirm that we will be hosting a hybrid retreat experience for both Avalanche and Blizzard.

  1. Onsite: We have confirmation with Muskoka Woods that we can host our onsite experience there. With the pandemic still continuing, we will make the necessary adjustments to ensure this is a safe, fun and hopefully an experience that draws your youth closer to Jesus.
  2. Satellite: We will also be hosting a satellite experience for those groups that choose to gather locally (whether that’s in their own location or online).

We are aiming to release our registration package on November 8. You will find all the details we have to date in that package. We will also release our CBOQ Youth Retreat COVID-19 Safety Plan later in November.

For Avalanche (Jr high), we are excited to have Tim Teakle (Alpha Canada) speaking while, at Blizzard (Sr. High), we will be led by Shawn Naylor (shawnnaylor.ca). More details about their involvement will be coming out with our registration and promotions material.

While we have more details, we have not yet finalized all the details of how each experience will look like.

As a side note, we are also extending our Slingshot and Team Captain application deadline until Monday, November 15.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to contact Alvin (alau@baptist.ca, 416-620-2946).

We prayerfully move forward anticipating how God will continue to move your youth and their friends closer to Jesus.
